30 Days Wild ---Day 24


My apologies  for the technical difficulties, and not posting this yesterday.   For the past two days, there has been uncertain  wi-fi connection. There seems to be a problem with the  phone wires, after the storms on Wednesday night.  There were four confirmed tornadoes in central Illinois,storm damage in Kentucky  and flooding in West Virginia.  It is an uncertain and impermanent world.

For  all of us, things seem more uncertain than ever,  after the UK vote to leave the EU.   These are divided and uncertain times.

Some days, you really need perspective  and clarity. The natural world reminds us that we are all connected, one world.

Powers of Ten,  a short film produced by Charles and Ray Eames in 1977, is an adventure in perspective and wonder. It starts in Chicago, a picnic in a park on a fine October day, but it could be a beautiful day in June. From there, it goes outward and inward, from the cosmic to the subatomic. Ready for a trip to the outer limits where the galaxies and electrons flicker like fireflies?

  • The first part is sort of a combination of Google Maps and Accuweather, but 30 some years before them.
