Forbidden and Forgotten

The two biggest wishes of every artist through our history were to be accepted and remembered.

It somehow leaves the feeling that we, ordinary, "everyday" people do not have that exclusive right to be accepted and remembered. Every day, on every television station we can see important people, like politicians, singers, bussinesman, and then large number of rich people guiding the tours trough their homes etc.. But, what about ordinary people, what about a vast number of man,…

As the old expresion says "You cannot see the forest for the trees ", so we also cannot see all existing problems in our society.

IMAGINE1: Imagining the future.. of yourself !

The future ain't what it use to be !

Such a funny state, but deeply true. One could say that future cannot be predicted, cannot be calculated, due to the infinite number of variables that you have to consider. So for the same reason it cant be altered eather. We are either faited to live in constant fear of the uncertan future or to live with the knowledge that we (humanity) might be already destined to die in some way in the future. But these are only the two aspects of the…

Wake up call...

I think that the problem lies in the mindset of the people of Africa. If you look other great civilizations of the world, they reached certain point in time and collapsed. That is maybe why african people just cant cope with certain problems because they have reached some point and stoped there. The development of the world, as we know it (known, writen history), begun (every time) from certain "centers" of the world, certain nations or civilizations. We can…

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More
