Thursdsay Morning I rode the Mariachi Bullitt to have breakfast with Jon. I use a New York-sized chain to lock it up. :-)
Check out the index as he has phtographed quite a few cities around the world, inlcuding Shanghai, Beijing, Las Vegas, Rome. Check out the Pantheon here – since it is a flash site, you’ll have to navigate to photograph number 3 yourself. Some fine armchair travel!
I watched a few TED talks this week. This one, by Sam Harris, is quite good. Some of what he is saying here echoes what Ken Wilber has been talking about for some time. Flatland is wrong, some opinions are of higher value than others. My opinion on what’s wrong with your car is so worthless compared to the opinion of a car mechanic!
Other talks I watched this week: a short talk about roundabouts and a new traffic sign: New Traffic Sign: Take Turns. Here is a screenshot I made on my phone while watching the talk:
A beautiful and heartfelt talk by Robert Gupta, violinist with the LA Philharmonic: Music is medicine, music is sanity. After his talk, Gupta plays his own transcription of the prelude from Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1! And The Danger of Science Denial.
And, to balance the seriousness, check out this captivating hippo (((thanks Guy!)))!
