Pictures

A picture is worth a thousand words

How foolish of one to forget; and over the past few years that is exactly what I have done.

I’d forgotten the power of a picture.

That as much as I try to write and learn to write well, I was always missing something. In today’s information world of limitless data and limited attention, what captures the viewer is no longer attributed to the majority of what is written, but what is now noticed in those first few seconds. First impressions DO matter for the most part and although a good start may be an interesting tag line or a one line joke to begin the article, you can’t grab the attention more than an incredible picture can.

It may seem obvious at first but a friend of mine recently noticed my blog and brought it to my attention; and with that in mind, I hope to find a picture in my archives that represents every single one of my articles, both old and new.

P.s. I also hope to revive my good old Instagram. Its been over 2 years since my last post, maybe starting October is a good as time as any to start again.

Thanks!

I think this is super cool…The Scale of the Universe!

Have you ever wondered how big the things in the universe really are? or maybe you’ve an interest rather in the things so small that we cant even see! Well, I stumbled across something really cool in my search for answers to these questions, a little visual flash representation of the scale of the universe.

Curiosity at it’s greatest can be found HERE

It’s quite dazzling to see the things big and small that make up the universe we live, it really puts into perspective who we are. It fits well with what I have always believed, that we are only a tiny speck in a universe so limitless. When you see the world from that point of view your problems just disappear, your worries will seem so insignificant to the greater cause; it doesn’t mean that they don’t exist, we certainly feel the effects of it, but it does mean that we have control over how we choose to react to it. How infinitely large the universe is, is also how infinitely small it is too, it’s important to not forget that we too are giants to so much in this universe. The question I ask is, what type of giant will we choose to be? Will we be the friendly giants like the elephants that we know? or will be be the giants that destroy everything in it’s path?

I’ve spent hours pondering over the things I’ve seen on here. With an ever curious mind I go from one mystery to another. Maybe a good start for you is at the Giant Japanese Spider Crab!

Thanks for reading! Love ❤

A bit of Magic

I Love fiction, I love fantasy and magic. For me, what really sets an amazing story from another is in it’s ability to create a sense of realism. The possibility for the reader, the listener and viewer to believe that out there in this vast universe we live in, it might actually exist.

Fiction. Fantasy. Magic.

The Studio Ghibli Films is an example of one which does that well. It’s almost like a dream as you step into the world Hayao Miyazaki creates for the viewer. An incredibly powerful sense of real moving and shaping worlds coupled with a douse of magic and art make it both a beauty to watch and for the viewer to become captured into.

Great novels also give off a similar vibe because our imaginations are limitless. One of my personal favorites is George Orwells 1984, with him being able to shift the readers mindset into an entirely new world he’s created and dauntingly also as you follow he main character in his daily life.
