21st century thinking …..joining the dots

I’ve mentioned before about some of the up and coming scientists and engineers …..so here I’ve posted 3 links to Mehaks blog ‘The Quantum Thought’ …..not only is she clever ….a pragmatic scientist/mathematician but she’s a creative too …I LOVE her posts ….particularly the drawings of the microbiology of the brain ….I fancy a blown up print of one to replace my rather faded Jackson Pollock ….SERIOUSLY I could look at them all day ….and if she ever got the time to do them in color ……POW!!!:D:D:D

ANYWAY please take a look …you don’t need to be a scientist or mathmetician to appreciate them ….beautiful!!!:):):):) ….it’s facinating that even MY brain has got that miniscule lightening storm firing off in it …..well ….it doesn’t feel to have much of a one today but STILL:D:D:D


Been thinking…..and I know I’ve said this before… 

Blogging is a wonderful way of getting thoughts…. ideas…. creativity….. out there 

I’ve been a bit blown away by it….but for me personally not sure whether its good or bad

Reading blogs can get a bit addictive….and when I look at my own blog….its a bit… a bit….I don’t know:D:D

It started as some kind of release:D:D

I was GENUINELY shocked anyone looked at it

And for me one of the beauty’s of the bloggoaphere is there are no boundaries…..but the thing is… for me… sometimes thats a negative…I struggle with the etiquette….and I guess… because its just me and my rambling thoughts…it can all come tumbling out…and I reckon it comes across as personal…which it is really….

Not in a Facebook….. Ooooh look what I’m doing kind of way….or maybe it is…. theres some kind of weird intimacy to it tho isnt there?   Or is that just me?

ANYWAY… I’m finding it all a bit weird… not sure if it comes across…but my life is full on (not unlike anyone elses I know)

And I need to FOCUS….its not my time yet to ‘write’ 

Maybe one day when things have eased off…if they ever do

God…. I really want them to

But last night I got an email from the labour party… I’d taken my eye off the ball with stuff going on here…was still reeling from it really

As you know our local MP was murdered….an AMAZING woman whose shoes are going to be IMPOSSIBLE to fill 

So there’s a byelection…the other 3 major parties have taken the decision not to contest it out of respect for Jo…. However there are apparantly 9… yes NINE fringe groups standing!!!!!??

JEEZUS…. I guess it shows the fracture of this community since that bloody daft referendum campaign

ANYWAY….the new labour candidate is not a local woman…and she’s an ex actress… I think???….they’ve rallied the troups so to speak and I reckon she’ll need all the help she can get

Part of me thinks…. I’ m knackered and want a peaceful life…do my job…come home…see to the boys and lol about in pj’s Eric in hand…. but somehow that doesnt seem to be happening….should I just bury my head in the sand?

Stand by?

Run off and find my cushion?

Jack it all in and live in a beach shack with a nice little garden so the boys have an alternative?

Can I add anything more to my current muddling thro by the skin of my teeth?

Am I heading for a breakdown?

Am I having one?…..because things seem to have gotten very weird the last couple of years

You SEE I’m doing it AGAIN.. this post was titled blogging and its become my usuall ill thought out BLAAAAAH…and this on my phone at lunchtime too… sat in my car wolfing down a quick buttie and adding rambling thoughts to my post

Not good is it?

Thats serious blogaddiction

RIGHT…MUST crack on!!!!

Have we lost ‘intelligence’?

If you look at the links to the 2 posts published previously you will see that one is about Wolves being re introduced to Yellowstone Park in the US and how in a short space of time …with not too many wolves …a great ‘healing’ took place ….the damaged Ecosystem of the nature reserve COMPLETELY restored AND flourishing further.

I’ve ALWAYS thought wolves were misunderstood but special creatures ….something about the ….well I’m not sure what …it’s more than their ‘appearance’ ANYWAY watch the clip ….it PROVES that wolves are tuned into Om ( or have an ‘intelligence’) WAY beyond us humans

The second link is to the blog ‘Rationalising the Universe’ which explains the repeating coil pattern occurring EVERYWHERE really:)

I am following some AMAZING blogs …’Maths by a girl’ is another favorite …this young woman is both VERY clever AND creative …she does detailed pen drawings of the microbiology of the brain which are the most WONDERFUL works of art:)

I honestly believe that there is a HUGE shift in thinking occurring …..a recognition that EVERYTHING is connected ….a systems theory where each part relates with the other kind of in an osmotic way ….the ancients KNEW it and I think it’s very nicely depicted in this …. one of my FAVORITE images ….it’s an aboriginal painting ….it not only depicts the blurring of the internal and external but also the vibrancy and energy which kicks the whole thing off …..’God’ ‘Allah’ ‘Om’ or WHATEVER you want to call it …an ‘intelligence’ higher than ours which you could argue has been lost in ‘development’ ….we are starting to acknowledge it again now tho :):):):)

An authentic character ….

So …..this weekend I spent in the company of ….fellow blogger/writer …take by the ‘virtual’ shoulders and shaker ….Dermott Hayes …….and it’s been great

Dermott is encouraging me to ‘write’ ….( or trying to :D:D) …take my lifelong journal writing and 1/2 arsed attempt at blogging in a different ….or mor focussed direction ….coming up with ideas and writing in a way I’ve wanted to but maybe not had the confidence really …so I thank him for that

And meeting  in person did not disappoint ….yep here is a guy who has certainly lived a life ….a bit of an old rogue:D:D:D ….yep ….he came to meet me after having been the sole male at a table of 11 glamorous women at a charity lunch:D:D:D

If you’ve seen and read anything of Dermotts …to meet him in person you get EXACTLY what it says on the tin

Annoying tho I found him at first ( and no doubt will again) …he is actually very thoughtful …a gentleman ….an obviously loving father and grandfather …( he HAS to be the coolest grandad around with HIS music collection) …and COOK!!!?? ….my GOD!!! ….Dermott has a cookery blog called ‘Last night I boiled an Egg’ the title of which is misleading in the EXTREME :D:D:D  I urge anyone who likes food to take a look at this blog

So …all in all I have felt spoiled rotten

Meeting on O’Connell Bridge …a quick trip to the pub:D:D:D

Visiting one of Dublins organic food markets ….(feeling a bit of an idiot as it was raining and had to borrow Dermotts Parker …the hood making me feel like Kenny from South Park)…a friend of Dermotts and greengrocer who sliced us up some pear to eat as he told us some daft tale about this woman and her husband in a way only an Irishman could :D:D:D ( Sorry if that sounds like stereotyping but it’s true and meant in a good way)

Food …..Food ….and more food

Spicey scrambled egg and advocado

Stir fried fresh king prawns and Greek salad with some kind of chilli and garlic dressing

Fresh hunks of Hake with green beans and new potatoes ….cooked to perfection AGAIN with JUST the right oil and herb mix …I think this time it was garlic, mint and something else ….GOD!!! ….I HAD to mop up the juices with a thick slice cut from the home baked whole meal loaf ….I don’t think I’ve ever eaten as well in my LIFE:D:D:D ….we’re talking 5 star restaurant status here …..actually …..better than …..SERIOUSLY

I can honestly say it’s been LOVELY visiting Dermott in his little artists Garrett …. because that’s what it is …a peaceful little haven amongst the madness of inner city Dublin with its little roof garden overlooking the churchyard … his writing desk in the corner and his music:):):):)

And I’ve come away with books …goodies …a Bjork boxed set thingy ( in pristine condition …I think D maybe had one listen and thought ‘for fucks sake’!!!:D:D:D) ….and a download which now gives me no excuse not to crack on with my ‘homework’  as it has proper editing features etc

ANYWAY ….thankyou Dermott ….an alternate weekend with a difference …you’re an absolute star 🙂
