hannah,

 

Welcome back. Sorry to hear about the HD's and Gawd, no -the oven? Say it ain't so. We can live for a while without the Internet but no popcorn? No way. ;)

 

Oh...Zeshua is the name you're looking for. No, Zeshua failed to appear in March as "post-dicted" in a post from her relative past that she said that she made here in March of 2009 from our relative future.

 

Don't ask. Just writing that sentence confused me.

 

 

Just another damned cowboy with a college education.

{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{Darby!!!}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}} So good to see you :) :)

 

LOL yeah I read that sentence a couple of times and it sounds like the short version would be, she crapped out, as you so entertainingly anticipated.

 

Thanks for the acknowledgment of my computer disaster, Darby. The worst part of the computer crash was the loss of gigs and gigs of original digital art. That's what I do for a living, and it's also what keeps me sane (relatively). It was devastating. I cried for weeks and it took months before I could make new art again.

 

I am SO glad to be back! *smooch* Thanks for checking in with me, I look forward to hanging around a bit. :)

 

Addendum- your posts to Lyndzee Grummond are simply brilliant. Reading them now :)

Welcome back, Hannah.

 

The worst part of the computer crash was the loss of gigs and gigs of original digital art. That's what I do for a living, and it's also what keeps me sane (relatively). It was devastating. I cried for weeks and it took months before I could make new art again.

A graphical artist who is also an excellent writer? We are truly lucky to have you back! My first crush from early elementary school days now lives up in the Pac Northwest area and she is a fairly big illustrator of children's books. People like you and her amaze me, mostly because I can't draw for crap...at least not without AutoCAD and my creations with that are, well, boringly practical!

 

I, too, am sorry to hear about your copious data loss. I had a similar, but not so drastic experience, in which I lost my entire iTunes library in a disk crash. Restoring most of it via syncing the iPod was a piece of cake, and the large majority of music that was not on the iPod was stuff I had ripped off of my CDs and so was only semi-painful to restore. But it did cause me to look at how cheap and data-dense USB hard drives have become. And now there is no excuse why I should not pull that device out, hook it up, and do a full data backup every week! I highly recommend you develop this practice! :)

 

Addendum- your posts to Lyndzee Grummond are simply brilliant.

I have to admit Lyndzee was a lot more fun than Zeshua, because at least Lyndzee traveled well outside the "safe hoaxing zone" from which Zeshua (Peter) would never stray. And Darby always has a fun flair in how he addresses the hoaxers. He's always the "good cop", and I guess we know where that leaves me! :oops:

 

Good to have you back. Please share some of your art with us! I love seeing the product of right-brainers! ;)

Ahhh, and here he is, the Ozone Man! I was hoping you'd say hello. :) Your post made me smile--and not for the first time. In a vile mood last night, I started to read through the Lyndzee thread, and found myself giggling aloud. Between you and Darby, the entertainment value blew away anything YouTube could ever provide. :)You guys are even better than my favorite show, The Office. ;)

 

I am so sorry to hear about your ITunes library, dear RM. That must have been devastating and tedious to fix. I appreciate your commiseration. Yes, I back up everything but I am at a disadvantage. I can no longer use DVDs, they are paltry next to my storage needs. I have about eight terras right now in the form of external drives and those aren't enough. So when I need to backup, it can get costly. Not only do I have my art, which is all digital (and there is a lot of it), but I also collect and sell vintage works in high resolution. The amount of space needed for this amount of art is pretty formidable. One image alone can be three gigs.

 

Thank you SO much for the compliment about my writing :) In another life, I thought I was going to be a writer--designed the book jacket in my head for that NY Times bestseller with the elegant serif font--but then I discovered digital art and it was like the universe opened up and swallowed me. I became addicted and I couldn't be dragged away from the computer, stressing my marriage for a time. Five years ago, my husband quit his day job because we saw I had a following and we opened our art business. I am blessed that my obsession pays our bills, I never dreamed I would make a living at it or that it would overtake any fantasies I used to have of writing.

 

Since you've asked, here are some pieces of mine. I hope you like them.

 

Oh I am so glad to chat again, RM. I couldn't find this place for the longest time but then I remembered the name. You guys are just so special.

 

Big Hugs,

 

Hannah

My favorite is the one with the two butterflies.

 

That one is so beautiful to me. :)

 

I like how it looks like the light is coming out of the center of the flowers.

 

and how the rest of the flowers look like they are flowing gently to an unseen breeze.

 

It looks as if the flower's light reaches gently out to the butterfly and gently hugs it

 

in its essence.

 

I am curious what your thoughts were when you did that one. I love it.

Pam, how sweet of you :) Thank you so much! I am so glad you liked the art and commented.

 

I don't really recall what I was thinking about when I created the butterfly piece (called Languid Journeys) but I do find that a lot of creating--for me, anyway--is synchronous with what is going on in my life or with my emotions. For example, I am originally from New York City. Sometimes I become homesick for it (I live in Vermont now) and, when I am, my art reflects cityscapes--sharp geometric shapes, color traffic headlight blurred streaks, etc. In other words, there is often a correlation to what is going on internally and the art.

 

Here are some more butterflies. Thank you again, so much.

Well they certainly are beautiful. Thank you for showing me more of the butterfly ones. :)

 

That first one above is awesome to. You can just get caught up in the pictures beauty.It kind of draws you into it and the flowers are simply beautiful to behold.

 

That one I can picture myself standing by a very peaceful lake and suddenly a gentle gust of wind has blown an array of flowers toward me as I am engulfed in beauty and gentle flower fragrances. Suddenly I hear the flapping of a hummingbirds wings and see a large beautiful butterfly flutter in front of me.

 

You are very gifted. :)

 

Lanquid Journeys is my ultimate favorite! That one to me is absolutely breath taking. I love it![/color]

Hannah...

 

Wow !!!

 

Hannah, those pictures are beautiful . You are extremely talented and gifted, and your Art...there are no words that I can think of that can fully describe ALL of the elements that can be "seen" and more importantly..."felt"...while gazing at those images.

 

Thank-you so much for sharing them.

Thank you so much, Pam. :)

 

Much of my art here is based on fractals...I don't know if you heard of them, but I like to call them "God made visible" or "the hand of God." Nope, I'm not a bible thumper, I just have a spiritual core, like many other folks. ;) Fractals are based on self-repeating natural math algorithms, the same math upon which the universe in its entirety is based, and made of the same "stuff" of which we are made. That is why fractals form natural, archetypal shapes like spirals, nautilus, petals, etc, because it reflects the shapes of which the earth is comprised. I take these fractals and I change and manipulate them--pretty dramatically--to reflect my own vision. I find that some people are very drawn to the art because it resonates spiritually--we are all, in a sense, fractals. Crop circles are fractals, too, and part of sacred math, like the Fibonacci spiral.

 

Thank you again, Pam. I am so pleased you enjoyed the work. It means a lot.

Dear KerrTexas,

 

I have an admission to make: a special weakness for Texans. I am married to one and I have come to adore the Texan's special brand of integrity, independence and patriotism. I know the latter is a bad word amongst some of the intellectual genre, but I don't believe patriotism is a "madness of geography".

 

I am so glad you liked the work and I thank you kindly for commenting. My work is available on a wide variety of products---from clocks to tile murals to glass to kitchen accessories to jewelry. That's what we do for a living. If you're curious, stop by Color Bakery. You might enjoy the visit. ;) Color Bakery

 

Warmly,

 

Hannah

Beautiful work, Hannah! And my ears (eyes? soul?) perked-up when you said:

Yes, the mathematics of nature. And the part of your note that I emboldened above is a very important part of fractals. The self-repeating aspect arises from the basis of their mathematical construction in the form of being "closed-loop" mathematical constructs. I am sure you are aware of what I mean, especially when you investigate the means by which the rich Mandelbrot set is constructed.

 

The reason fractals represent nature so well is because the entire universe is comprised of feedback loops. And all physical feedback loops respond to oscillating inputs (stimulus) in varying ways. This, of course, is the study of frequency response and the subordinate phenomenon called resonance. No surprise that this has a direct relation to an area of study that Pamela has just brought to the forefront of another thread:

 

Pamela cites cymatics

 

One of my areas of applied research in control systems deals with using fractal patterns (in their native, mathematical, compact structure) to make control systems "intelligent". I cannot talk about specific projects related to this, but let me just say this: We are on the verge of a relatively coherent understanding of the continuum of "intelligence", and this growing understanding will have a large impact on how we see ourselves in the universe and how we interact with our universe.

 

IMO, this is the real evolutionary unfolding that is approaching in 2012. And yes, it impacts how we view Time, and it will help us change from a linear, ordered view of time to a more quantum view of time. (And we should not assume this has much of anything to do with the fantasy that there are "infinite timelines" all being physically acted-out in parallel universes to us. The revelations are much more subtle... and that fits because quantum mechanics is a very subtle explanation of phenomena.)

PS - Can anyone identify the fractal phenomenon in this schlieren photograph of supersonic flow around a bullet?

Ah, you might want to check and see if your equipment is grounded as well as having a surge protector.

 

There was a house around here that got hit by lightning (for some reason) and it took out the upper bedroom (the room that was hit) and started a fire at that house. Of course I think all they ended up losing was the bedroom, but the corner of the house was black from the hit. That normally should not happen, but then when I worked outside, a lightning bolt hit a tree not 15 feet away from me, as I was pondering what to do, since I worked outside at the time and was sitting in the truck. I am glad I decided to stay in the truck instead of working on telephone lines at the time.

 

Lovely art, good luck with it.

 

But grounding should be done by the ultilities and the rest is all about surge protection to the extent that it will work.

I posted briefly about a year ago and then couldn't remember the URL after a computer crash (lightning bolt wiped out four hard drives, a fax, two phones and an oven).

what exactly is wrong with those hard drives? it might be possible to get your data off of them still. i hate to see folks lose data.

 

if they were just formatted, and you havent overwritten them, a data recovery prog can get your data off of them.

Hello fellow time travel enthusiasts...

 

I hereby want to express my sincere apologies for leaving the forum so sudden and I hope you will all welcome me back.

 

I see that quite a few people are still active on the forum and I hope I can engage in discussion again.

 

Kind regards,

 

Roel

{{{{{{{{{{{{{RT}}}}}}}}}}}}}}} I am thrilled to be remembered. I never forgot you. :) And man, I missed this place. I particularly enjoy you eviscerating the phony time travelers. It's great reading :)

 

I am a professional artist now. My work appears on home decor products you see in stores like Bed Bath and Target. It's a dream come true for me. :) If you want to see my work, here is a link: Art Licensing, Home Decor, Gift, Tabletop, Fabric, Mindy Sommers

 

Hope you are doing well! I look forward to visiting more often :) Maybe one day we'll get a *real* TT in here. Wouldn't that be refreshing?

 

BTW I use Hannah because that was my original middle name. I hate the name Mindy. ;)
