as usual now, click to see larger versions.

translation of subject: is it a living creature that has divided into identical selves? from the poem "ginkgo biloba" by goethe.

still have the crud, but i think the snot tide has turned.

if you have a little time, go see some utterly amazing landscapes from mars. for screen readers: they have descriptions, but unfortunately those are very dry. i wish there were an easy way to make 3D models of some; it'd be great if you guys could feel the textures, because they are awesome.

thanks to the paramour wandering around looking for the cats, i was reminded to go outside and lie down in the grass for a while tonight. one of the many things i love about living here is the relative lack of light pollution; on a clear night we can actually see the milky way curve above us.

it's a perfect night for gawking at the stars, and as a bonus: meteor showers! saw 2 really bright ones. i think i might go back outside for a while, maybe take a blanket.
