… another great day, marred only by about ten program crashes the past couple of hours whilst I was trying to get the photos worked up that are included in tonight’s missive. Just for fun I added some pretty testy language to the mouthed complaints of the birds who are acting out tonight … also for fun, they spoke some words that earned them a mouth washing or three. The beta version of Photoshop has some serious problems and with more than ten crashes since midnight it has truly irritated me … but then, I know it is the beta version and stuff like this can happen in beta!
I like the little squabble going on in the two photos … first the guy gets his words in and then the gal lays it on him and he heads straight up and out before her wrath gets worse!. Absolutely no comparison with humans though … sure thing … you betcha!
Below is the Gem Silica I am working on … just finished rough shaping and now it is time to bring it down the diamond wheels before putting the final polish on it with cerium oxide slurry on a polishing pad. This is from rough gem material that I bought from Keith Hodson, back in the 1980’s and this is an exquisite translucent gem! Click on the link above and check it out 🙂
Gotta wrap this … off to Phoenix for lunch with a friend in not that many hours … have a beautiful day and enjoy the human condition … we are here and we get to live and enjoy the beauty of this little planet.
A bird flies through the sky, and I fly with it. I am in
each pearl of moisture sparkling in the sun. I lie lazy
on the clouds. And I acknowledge my kinship with
each winged thing.
I see all as one, and nothing repels me, as this new
day climbs noiselessly out of the valley of night.
Peace lies over the world and over the world of my soul.
