The Mark of god: understanding your "I AM Presence"

Stanza VI, Slokas 5-6 5. At the fourth, the sons are told to create their images. One third refuses – to obey. The curse is pronounced; they will be born on the fourth suffer and cause suffering; this is the first war. 6. The older wheels rotated downwards and upwards….The mother’s spawn filled the whole.

Far be it from me to make fun of fake news. The dregs of society swear by it and there is no law against stupidity. But as someone who has for years photographed and studied wolves in YNP, I feel obligated to point out an inaccurate post that has been making the rounds on FB. […]

Here are a few of my favorite images from recent months. Many you probably haven’t seen yet because they were posted only on Flickr. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Welcome to my weekly discussion of the animated films of the Walt Disney Studio. I’m proceeding mostly chronologically. We are moving on to live-action and partially animated films. The title comes from a quote from Walt, β€œI never called my work an β€˜art’ It’s part of show business, the business of building entertainment.” Title: That […]

Throughout the length of my burgeoning career as an adventurer and practical scholar, one thing I’ve found to be true above all is that nothing is ever simple. Paths which may appear as straight lines on a map may turn out to be impassable, whether through natural or artificial means. Details pile on top of […]

Stephen Jones: a blog

We often study Chinese culture (both expressive and material) rather in isolation, but many parallels are suggested in Peter Burke, Popular culture in early modern Europe (1978, thoughtfully updated in 2009 edition), a lucidly-written single-volume work on the period 1500 to 1800. Of course it’s a vast field, but Burke’s broad coverage is enriched by […]

It was so windy my tripod wobbled; hence, no video. But if I was disappointed, others scurried about with delight. You might say they were ‘pumped’ for adventure. Frisky kites were corralled.

I have been so swamped lately with various photo projects, as well as planning a lengthy upcoming trip out West, that I pretty much missed the migrating birds that stop a few days each year at Ft. DeSoto Park. Except for this late-arriving Baltimore Oriole, who obliged me a few pics. And I’m told that […]

The New Navy In the 1880s, the U.S. Navy was sufficient for chastising errant Koreans or Panamanians, but by Great Power standards it was a joke, ranking twelfth in the world in number of ships, behind Turkey and Sweden, among others. One midshipman complained in 1883 that his ship, the Richmond, was β€œa poor excuse […]
