Sweet Café is aptly named

Thursday, 26 January 2006

The Sweet Café in Eagle Point (where some of Nancy’s new acrylic and oil paintings in her “Intuitive Abstract” and “Fun with Food” series are currently on display) is also a great place for coffee … and sweets of course … My favorite libation there (not being a coffee drinker) is Teri’s pumpkin spice Chai; quite tasty! Here’s a couple of images from a recent impromptu Saturday musical gig there. Location: 178 West Main Street (on the corner of Platte Street) in Eagle Point, Oregon 97524; open from 10AM-2PM every day except Sundays; 541-826-7988

Haunting melody: Hide and Seek

Wednesday, 4 January 2006

OK, time for quick update to start on the backlog of ideas & reflections percolating in my psyche…
First, in the kudos department, a quick tip of the musical hat to Imogen Heap” (who I hadn’t heard of until a clip on NPR exposed me to her lovely vocoder work the other day)… now I have been happily haunted by her synth-assisted a cappella work in the song “Hide and Seek”… and no, it isn’t just because she has a reference to crop circles in the lyric 🙂

Crooked Soley: A Crop Circle Revelation by Allan Brown & John Michell

Monday, 19 December 2005

I just finished reading “Crooked Soley: A Crop Circle Revelation by Allan Brown & John Michell” from Roundhill Press. There quite a lot of insight and inspiration in this little book. Brown shows the triangular relationship of the geography of the formation, Crooked Soley, and Straight Soley; he also has some lovely mosaics in the back that incorporate the gematrian numbers incorporated into this DNA toroidal hexagram pattern at Crooked Soley. Michell goes into more detail about the Gematrian number connections (with a focus on numbers 5040 & 7920) and their relationship to close approximation to circle radius and quarter circumference, squaring of the circle, Earth/Moon diameters, the Great Pyramid’s cross section, Stonehenge, Glastonbury, factorials, and other intriguing relationships. Patrick Harpur’s classic article concludes the book with wisdom about the important perspective that “Crop circles are not problems to be solved but mysteries to be entered, like labyrinths.” A highly recommended book!

Here is the text from the back cover:

“Crop circles are the finest, most beautiful and original art forms of
modern times, and they are totally mysterious.

Behind the crop circle phenomenon is an evident purpose. Some intelligence,
human, alien or spiritual, is in the process of communication. It is
exposing us to a course of re-education, beginning with the symbols of
sacred knowledge and wisdom.

The most striking evidence for this view is the amazing formation that
appeared at Crooked Soley in Wiltshire on the 27th August 2002. Clearly
expressed in its design are certain numerical symbols that are known
esoterically as the ‘Keys to Creation’. They are also keys to that universal
science associated with the Holy Grail. From time to time it is revealed
again, and when that happens, culture and the human spirit are renewed and
life on earth is restored to its natural state as a reflection of paradise.”

Worthy Cause update

Friday, 16 December 2005

Hi all:

Here’s a quick update in the “worthy cause” department. Here’s the
email I just sent to my elected representatives (hopefully there’s
still time for you to contact yours if you haven’t already):

What I sent to my elected representatives:

We owe it to our country, our planet, our children and our selves to
not only stop the reversal of democracy that the so-called “Patriot
Act” represents, but to become a better example of true egalitarian
democracy and freedom in THIS country first. Please do whatever you
can to stop the “Patriot Act” and also to remove the rider on any
legislation that would allow drilling in the Arctic Wilderness. Thank
you!

The “Boilerplate”:

Subject: Two Days to Stop the Patriot Act

Hi,

The White House is pressuring Congress to reauthorize a new version of
the Patriot Act that is worse than the original law and doesn’t
include needed reforms. This could come before the Senate as soon as
Thursday.

A bipartisan group of senators have agreed to fight the Patriot Act
–by filibuster if necessary.

This is a huge moment. Senators from both parties are standing
together to protect freedom and liberty –and they’re ready to fight.
Can you sign this petition to show them and the rest of the Senate
that you support filibustering this bad bill? The Patriot Act has to
be stopped until it includes reforms.

Thanks!

Hey, it’s a blue moon! I thought the theme was appropriate for today … thanks to Carolyn Brent for the link and suggestion. Lots more content on the way; I’ll start uploading (and organizing!) a huge backlog of interesting and useful posts and links about worthy causes, friends who have been invaluable, recommendations, and of course more geometric and philosophical musings over the holidays… stay tuned! 🙂
