Ode to Resolution

Nuclear Surreality

Nuclear Surreality

My wife slipped into my office this morning as I was experiencing this piece. She said what I was thinking:

“That is the soundtrack to Fukushima.”

Here is a remarkable performance of The Dark Knight – Hans Zimmer /James Newton Howard -LIVE by the Bucharest Symphony Orchestra and Choir, a part of the Masterpiece show. I would like to re-name it though:¬† “Dark Night, An Ode to Resolution”.

As is rarely so obvious a circumstance, we have a fantastic opportunity to evolve as a species as a result of what has gone on unabated for almost three years now at the Fukushima-Daiichi Nuclear Electric Power Generating Station.

This is because we can now comprehend what the true fruit of the dark thinking expounded upon during the Cold War era has wrought for the world. It’s terminus has been the expensive and deleterious impact on the ecosystem of a hemisphere. It was an unwise choice, to say the least. But really, we are quite fortunate, if we simply take this as a lesson, and think better-choose well, in moving forward.

This is a great film sent along through a network of people engaging in remediation of the disaster at Fukushima. It is called the “Atomic States of America”. Essential viewing,¬† as it is both educational and inspiring.

Here is a highly informative interview of Dr Michio Kaku, a physicist. It is titled “The End of Humanity”.¬† The message in it is anything but being about that.

Here is an informative videoblog from former Nuclear Industry Executive and Engineer, Arnie Gundersen, of Fairewinds Energy Education. It is titled West Coast Radiation Exposure: What are the risks?

My hope is that a higher level of information begins to develop within the public sector, and that Humanity begins to take it’s leadership to task regarding errant choices that have continually sent us down the dark road of war, suffering and unsustainability.

We can do better. In order to, we must be better than what we as members of our separate Nations have been in the past, where people were divided and apportioned as assets in a machine which has neither compassion or common sense.

Being Clear

Monday, June 25th, 2012

I ran into a friend the other day, who brought up an interesting point about some of my work.

In essence, this is what he said.

“Do you realize that you often leave it to us, to figure out what you are trying to communicate? That can be really frustrating, as so many of us are busy with other things, and we¬† want to get it. But there is no time to track through all the links and study it all out. You may want to consider just telling us the answer.”

It really is a good point that he made. My fiance, Donna says this same thing to me frequently.

My answer typically has been this: “I do it for a reason. Maybe not everyone should ‘get it’. People tend to value things which they earn.”

But it gave me a lot to think about. Friends are good that way. They sharpen us. Because they really do care.

In edit this weekend, as I worked through post production, I came across this image of a teensy wave washing up a sea glass beach.

Colors are significant in that they illustrated different energy signatures. Water, when it is pure, is clear. Yet in the Sea, it contains the genetic signature of all life. It reflects every color in the spectrum. When polluted, it implements a process which eventually will purify it once again. It will go back to being clear to the eye. Yet below the range of human sight, there still is another universe active within it.

Yes, something to think about, for sure.
