On this beautiful day I want to send to all of you this happy song to bring sunshine to yours. It is one of my children’s favorite which has become mine to the point of wanting to wake up every morning to this cheerful note 🙂
I only thought of posting it when I found it on http://purplewoods.wordpress.com/2013/12/03/purple-music-happy/
and had a good 4.07 mn of joy!
My wish is it’ll do the same to you 🙂

BBC Documentary – The Magical Forest (HD) (not an ordinary documentary!)


…And that is why we preserve it with all our might 🙂
This is a documentary worth persevering till the end, it is relaxing, hopeful, informative it shows us nature as interconnected. A unique network system, each one relying upon the other for its survival.
It teaches us the miracle of life in all forms, its delicate balance, the necessity & importance for every seemingly insignificant role played (by the word we have started to take too much for granted having heard it so often pronounced) in a perfectly designed Eco-system.
You will not regret watching it 🙂

http://www.keepturningleft.co.uk for more bird films. The starlings are an astonishing thing to see – Near Oxford – England. This was filmed at an RSPB reserve called Otmoor. It is the most remarkable thing I have ever seen – and as a video camerman I have seen some pretty amazing things.

The music is from a companny called CSS Music. The track is “soaring with the sun” – .

I have just received this

Hi, Dylan. I got your contact information from your beautiful YouTube video published in February 2007.

Audubon Magazine published a wonderful article about starling flock behavior earlier this year: http://www.audubonmagazine.org/featur…
.
My favorite segment from the article:

Like drivers on a freeway, starlings dont appear to mind having neighbors nearby on their sides—or above and below, for that matter—as long as they have open space ahead. That makes sense, since the presence of a clear path in the direction of travel minimizes the likelihood of collisions should the birds need to shift their course abruptly, as is likely when a falcon attacks. But whats really nifty about this spatial asymmetry is that the researchers have been able to use it to calculate the number of neighbors to which each starling pays close attention—a quantified elaboration of Pottss chorus line idea. By looking at correlations between the movements of neighboring starlings, they can show that each bird always pays attention to the same number of neighbors, whether theyre closer or farther away. How many neighbors is that? Six or seven, says Cavagna, who points out that starlings in flocks can almost always see many more nearby birds— but the number may be closely tied to birds cognitive ability.

The direction of the flock can be coordinated by each birds tracking six or seven other birds. Remarkable. This is a very different kind of cognitive skill.

Evolution’s trek (painting finally finished!)

This painting was started in 2012 which I am relieved to say I have finished! I am very proud of it for the very reason that it was my work and idea from scratch.

The screws are life’s question marks, we are full of them… we are born with two principal ones. Will I get enough food and will I get enough sleep and as we go further we accumulate the questioning (which along the way gets smaller because answered through searching in life’s trek, the smaller ones get sometimes linked or shaped in hearts) it eventually gets fewer, sparser, lighter which is why I put in round natural stones representing bubbles… the airiness, the wellbeing one experiences with aging and serenity.
At the extreme corner there are no more questions, no bubbles (bubbles are to underline the contrast, the presence of… the other extreme) I wanted the purity of the white canvas to speak for a million words and represent the plenitude one feels with maturity and age.
The splashes of satin paint are faithful to Jackson Pollock’s methods which I’m very much pulled toward and represents the life force and energy.
I am including photos of the work process until its final stage.

Wishing you a lovely week 🙂

I hope you enjoy it and appreciate the impact of wise and profound words 🙂
