You can't help but feel blessed that we live in a time that we WISH could be shared with Bill, Hank, Toad and our other passed friends. It's still a wonderful world. Google Earth allows you to go there without BEING there. I just checked out my old place on South Central Avenue, that I used to share with Kevin Reedy Webb of the Do It Now Foundation (Deceased) and the old house is totally gone. So is the concrete cabin cruiser (under construction) that suddenly got dropped in the back yard by a huge crane one day. Serious. It's just a vacant lot now. Desert once again. Dust In The Wind. Sigh.......
Anyway in honor of Kevin and especially Bill, here are some satellite photos taken from waaaaay out there and zoomed in on that you'll likely enjoy. A bit "Artsy" in night-time black and white but fascinating, nonetheless.
Any Ocotillo cactus will tell you - you gotta have SPIKES to protect your stem or some buffallo or camel is gonna chew you up! Ooops.. here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail....
Pines near the desert - shadows at evening....
The Superdome (look towards the upper left corner) is probably best forgotten for now. So forget it.
Forgotten or not what's a Big City without a freeway system? "The Loop" where we can all park and chat on our cell phones for a couple of hours per day?
Now here's a fun picture - nothing like a power blackout to bring out the personality of a big city - right? Even the average Terrorist (or taxi driver) could locate a given building with a good map.
An ancient ocean view but you see this all over the desert, particularly New Mexico of course.
Makes ya wonder - WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE WATER!
There are many more pictures availabl [CLICK THE HEADLINE] Pictures of seashells, what appear to be masks, engine parts, junkyard items, and lots and lots of sand. That's not uncommon in the Sonora.... but these pictures?
These pictures are all from MARS. Each and every last one of them..... Mars.. you know, waaaaaay out there.
WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE WATER?....NASA ain't talkin' Not a word. Infrasrructures, domes, mining operations, cranes, freeways, subways, cities....... all desolate and dark. Yet it's all right there in front of us to see. This October another Mars mission is going to work its way up-close and personal. Close enough to read a license plate. Boy, are there going to be some questions THEN! But then again, if some predictions hold true, we may all be very busy at that time with Earth Stuff. But still.......WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE WATER?...
One explanation may be pictured below. Looks like Sedona from 30,000 feet, right? Red Rocks? Green stuff? Criss-crossed roads? Stare at it for a while. The colors are untouched, the photo is brightened a bit and waaaaay zoomed in.
It's a close-up of a very long crack in the planet. A huge CANYON if you would, centered around what appears to be a cave - maybe MANY caves in that canyon which is thousands of miles long. The water? My bet is that it is way down inside those caves and that if you could get in there you would find most of the oxygen on Mars as well.
And while we're in the Science Fiction mode, let's imagine that there is WARMTH in those caves from volcanic activity. And mushrooms and fungus and snails and little squirelly things that go outside at night and leave trails amongst the ocotillos. Little Elves in little jam sessions, just like the house down the street--- "Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Wierd and Gilly - and The Spiders From Mars".
If you can imagine even part of that then you can wrap yourself around this concept; That amongst the ruins and desolation of a destroyed planet, there is LIFE on Mars.
NASA ain't talkin'
