Nature Art Water Creativity

Here’s a combination of several different photo sessions, some with a Canon digital camera, the other with a phone. Some are sunsets, others are murals I captured being created live as I was bicycling by on one bike trail, others of the Santa Fe Watershed and river, a dry river bed “El Camino Real”. Others of fabulous art I saw while attending gallery openings.

It includes art of several Santa fe galleries, some of my own new additions towards my book, a Native American water mandala…local muralists and visiting artists.

This evening I was fantastically inspired by specifically several artists’ works at Peters Projects gallery – haunting stuff speaking of light, vastness, capturing images and imagination. Many describe environmental collapse due to human actions and destruction..

A Very powerful series, “Remnants” by Sonya Kelliher-Combs is also on display at PPeters Projects.
Ironically, the series are framed in a plastic petroleum-based substance, which is probably what lead to the demise of all of the creatures, hence the exhibit, remnants. Like an archeological display of all the creatures that once roamed the planet.

Health is Circulation | Letting things Flow | Diarrhetic vs Constipative (made up that word !-)

I’m full of shit these days, copious amounts. Well, that’s because of the foods I eat: lots of onion, veggies, fruit, garlic, blue-green leafy greens, beans, oats, lots of water all day….So, yeah, I’m talking literally. Although for anyone who has read my blogs etc, I’ve never tended to be constipative (my derivative of a verb from constipation) in expressing myself in writing either. I’ve often tended towards the diarrhetic side. It will be a life-long work-in-progress to write more leanly, concisely and to bring my points to the tip of the burg, rather than buried in its depths.

I’m brining it up as a health note in general; diet is very important as far as introducing nutrients and water into your body, since that is what you’re body is made of. The more real and raw the food (less processed and full of unpronounceable additives), the closer to the source and closer to being absorbed in your body. Point being that the more water to circulate through your body to cleanse and the more nutrient rich foods that circulate through your body, the better for your circulation and general health. Most causes of disease are inflammation: when things get blocked.

Analogously, the more real your feelings and expression, and intent in expressing your honest beliefs and sentiments to others, the healthier you are. If you’re holding onto grudges, and looking through the lens of anger, intolerance, judgement, etc., this is the stuff that is stressful; emotions that are stressing your physical body as you constrict them and tighten them into an armor. When these e motions have no-where to go, they start stressing out your own physical body from within; muscles, blood flow, organs…resulting in dis ease.

So, that’s my thought for the day. Health is about consuming lots of water, foods containing nutrients and letting oneself flow with emotions, rather than holding things in and letting the pressure build.

In fact the heart-rhythm mediation group I’ve attended talks about the four elements – earth, water, air and fire – each as cleansing. The movement through the earth of rhizomes, like a circulatory system, the motion of air, of water, of ions within the plasma of fire, all as cleansing. It’s the blockage or shrinkage from motion, that gets you into trouble. Holding your emotions in, is analogous to stuffing them.

As far as health practices, it’s about consuming more nutritious things, that naturally act to maintain health and strength. I’ve been boiling water first thing in the morning to which, once it has cooled down a bit, I squeeze a slice of lemon into the glass of water. http://cureproven.blogspot.com/2015/10/drink-warm-lemon-water-in-morning-for.html Then oats either alone or mixed with cereal, blueberries and plain greek yogurt, or once in a while eggs. My evening meals often consist of sweet potatoes and any dish I’m preparing will start with onion sautéed in olive oil and have plenty of spices (cayenne, chili, pepper, turmeric) along with garlic and typically cabbage, to which I then add whatever other vegetables. The Chopra Newsletter talks about “12 Foods to Help you Focus“. That’s why I have absolutely no problem with shitting. I’ve been adopting into my diet as much as possible the G-BOMB theme (nutrient dense foods) when I’m grocery shopping, planning and then preparing a meal. Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms & Berries http://wellandgood.com/2012/12/07/the-6-nutrient-dense-foods-that-should-rule-your-diet/#the-6-nutrient-dense-foods-that-should-rule-your-diet-2

I absolutely believe that we can live our lives eating well as a preventive measure to maintain health and that we can heal ourselves. http://truththeory.com/2014/04/27/is-there-scientific-proof-we-can-heal-ourselves/

It’s all about letting things go and letting things flow.

What Does Net Neutrality Mean to You? | It’s a 3

Lifescience says humans can live 3 minutes without air, 3 hours (in an extremely harsh environment) without shelter, 3 days without water, 3 weeks without food or sleep – with some exceptions – or you’ll perish.

Humans are social creatures. We survive and flourish through nourishing our physical bodies and minds. Throughout our lives we take in, learn and share information. It is our right.

To deprive a modern human being who has already been introduced to the free flow of information, by putting a price tag on the content and flow, should cause each human being to revolt, in 3 months. Reject the (too large monopolithic) providers withholding the information (for yourself, for him and her, your children, cousins, brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts, grandmothers) until new smaller providers, out of necessity, pop up to take their place with a resilience of free-market healthy competition.

Think globally, act locally. Down with corporate lobbying strongholds. United consensus must be felt and acted upon from the public to hold-out until a smaller provider emerges to blossom from the too big giants.

Why does net neutrality matter anyway? Those at Lifehacker explain that “The basic principle driving net neutrality is that the internet should be a free and open platform, almost like any other utility we use in our home (like electricity).”

What does it mean? It was Tim Wu,
