Art




There really is art in the practice of science research.   It *IS* an artistic endeavor.  However, it is a far different beast from the traditional arts.  I greatly enjoy art and visit museums and other art venues often.  However, I often wish I had more time to really immerse myself in art appreciation, or even in the pursuit of a more traditionally artistic pursuit.  I guess it is not that I do not have time, it is that I have not made time for it.  Sometimes, like today, I wish I had, or that I would do so.   The above paiting is Claude Monet's "Chef Pere Paul".  The photograph is of Monet, himself.

I can certainly agree with that even though doing science myself is mostly over my head. And that's okay, got through life being a mechanic and having other skills. Someone had to fix those monkeymobiles.

I smoked a few less bowls yesterday, still working on it.

I like the science of black powder shooting, that's pretty much my level as science goes.

I wouldn't know about that but there are people murdered on this rock everyday. It's still nice art.

It’s posted (her picture) on the internut, I didn’t post it there, deal with it. Lot’s of dead people are viewed as art everyday, I’m pretty sure she isn’t complaining. She gained a kind of immortality by being viewed and appreciated long after she left here, and no one should take that away from her.

I don’t know what their problem was (and I didn't say she was a bitch) and I’m not taking any time to try to figure it out, I have my own shit to deal with and I’m not much interested in the spoiled and famous.
