About Me

My photo
Deep South, United States
Consultant, inventor, mentor, chess coach,. Current projects involve No Till Farming and staving off blindness due to cataracts among other projects. I also do confidential ghost writing (without taking any published credit. My current blindness makes me put this on hold for a while. I should have one eye working again in about four months. Fact, fiction, all subjects considered. I have heard My daughter Jennifer is alive. I would love it if she were to contact me here. I understand she would like to know me. I have sent a message by circuitous route. I can only hope. My posted Email works as well. We have four decades to catch up on.

This blog has been up for more than a year. The intent was to generate dialogues about serious problems and ideas. It has been almost exclusively a monologue. I have not been looking for large numbers of participants.

I would be quite happy with a few dozen imaginative, creative, thoughtful and inventive people who wish to address serious problems and issues. If anyone has any ideas about how to attract such a talented group I will certainly pay attention. I am not as computer conversant as I would wish. Anyone who could help in this regard would find me receptive to sharing my skills in other areas.

Playing Around With Art

Clearly art is ephemeral. I cannot now show you the picture that this post is about.

I think play is the central thing in creativity. In my scientific endeavors I restrain myself from being too goal oriented. There are times when a certain lack of experience in what you are doing is an asset, not a liability. Discoveries are rarely made by people who know for sure exactly what they are doing.

This picture has now disappeared three times, after it was successfully up. Sort of spooky. I am clueless as to why. Something wrong with my various tinkerings I guess. If it keeps up I could get a little superstitious. (Just kidding.)

Okay, I have tried repeatedly to post the original, did it on a different browser, (which modified the picture trying to bring it back to something approaching a photograph.) The above is an example. It no longer looks like Andy Warhol was toying around with impressionism. When I went back to my original browser, the new browser jumped back on. So I deleted it from my system.

The original browser originally posted my picture exactly the way I wanted it, but the picture disappeared in an hour or so. Now the remaining browser is correcting in the fashoin of the browser I deleted.

Sometimes I like not knowing what I'm doing, and all the discovery that goes with that. Other times it is just a reminder that my lack of understanding is profound. Maybe I should get a printer that works. I think I have lost the original print which I really liked. I think I will stop and think about the birds and the bees for a while. Keep an eye out for my next post, in which I will say something about the birds and the bees. I promise.
