Started this before change to "New Blogger", as backup in case of trouble with digiphoto blog "In a Small Dark Room", or rants & links blog "Hello Cruel World" . Useful - at one stage Dark Room was there, but like the astrophysical Dark Matter, we could't see it ... better now, but kept Just In Case.

There is nothing. There is no God and no universe, there is only empty space, and in it a lost and homeless and wandering and companionless and indestructible Thought. And I am that thought. And God, and the Universe, and Time, and Life, and Death, and Joy and Sorrow and Pain only a grotesque and brutal dream, evolved from the frantic imagination of that same Thought.

Smith Centennial - lynks  

The New York Guggenheim is having a sculpture exhibition.
Exhibition: David Smith: A Centennial
Venue: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York
Dates: February 3-May 14, 2006
Will Travel to Centre Pompidou and Tate Modern
Widely considered the greatest sculptor of his generation, David Smith (1906-1965) created some of the most iconic works of the 20th century. Marked by the use of industrial materials, especially welded metals, and the integration of open space, Smith's three-dimensional version of Abstract Expressionism revolutionized the art of sculpture in the U.S. and around the world. Organized on the 100th anniversary of the artist's birth, David Smith: A Centennial presents over 120 of his greatest sculptures, as well as a selection of his drawings and sketchbooks, from his entire 33-year career as a sculptor

Whoever lives for his body alone is also a basilisk, a dragon, and an asp, not, indeed, generated as yet, but meanwhile moving alive until he dies...For if a man lives in sperm, his very sperms turn into worms, and remain worms, and in the day of the resurrection they shall be buried in the deepest parts of the earth, over which shall walk those who have risen".
The Composition of Metals: Book the First, Concerning the Generation of Natural Things, Paracelsus, in The Hermetic and Alchemical Writings of Paracelsus, Volume 1: Hermetic Chemistry
