So this movie I saw tonight, "The Beaver Kid", and hearing the creator, Trent Harris, got me remembering my interest in doing movies. (MiniDV / iMovie!)

For a moment there I was wondering what I'd do, then I remembered the story, from life experience, that I'd like to tell. It's the story I'd started living, for a short, yet vivid, time back there the summer of '91.

One thing that's particularly appealing about this thought is the possibility that I may convey some of what I've imagined is possible in the realm of human possibilities.

Possibilities, possibilities, possibilities! (I hadn't realized that I'd used that word *three* times in the previous paragraph.) I guess I'm looking around and much more distracted than I'd realized.

So, all in all I'm glad I got out for some people watching and tea tonight.

It was fun to interact with the gal who got me the tea, that I'd remembered from last Fall, and with others when a small moth landed on my tea (it seemed to be drinking it!) Yes, I shared my tea with the moth, wiped it off (where the moth had been) and continued on it myself.

All the tables seem to be full, and I'm wondering if they'll be kicking everyone out in a few minutes. Probably not, now that I think about it. They'll probably just stop serving, and people will eventually wander off.

But they keep pouring in! Right up to the last minute it seems.

Actually, now I see the vacuum sweeper's out. That'll do it. I'm outta here.

Hubble Captures Stunning Views of the Cosmos

We really are just infinitesimally small microscopic specs of dust in this super-expansive-mammoth universe of ours. (click for close-up)

Check out these latest Hubble photos:

This innocuous pillar of gas and dust is called the Cone Nebula, residing in a turbulent star-forming region. This new Hubble image shows the upper 2.5 light-years of the nebula, a height that equals 23 million round-trips to the moon. (click for close-up)

The colorful center of the Omega Nebula is a hotbed of newly born stars, each about six times hotter and 30 times more massive than the Sun. The region of the nebula shown in this Hubble image is about 3,500 times wider than our solar system. (click for close-up)

Dubbed the "Tadpole," this spiral galaxy with a long streamer of stars resides about 420 million light-years away in the constellation Draco. (click for close-up)

Located 300 million light-years away, the colliding galaxies in the Coma Berenices constellation have been nicknamed "The Mice." The pair, with their long tails of stars, will eventually merge into a single giant galaxy. This new image from the Hubble telescope shows the most detail and the most stars that have ever been seen in these galaxies. (click for close-up)
