Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #1146 - Throwback Thursday for 1901.10  - a sense of doubt post #1420

This one is just a huge cluster of stuff. And that's all that I have to say for now.

Just scroll.

In 2013, TIME released the first round of Google time-lapse images—revealing the growing sprawl of Las Vegas, the boomtown that is Dubai, the slow death of Alaska’s Columbia glacier. This year we turn our attention elsewhere. In some of those new sites, the changes have been positive ones—the expansion of the Panama Canal, say, as the greatest engineering feat of the 20th century was updated and improved for the 21st.
In other places, the story is more mixed: the new Jirau Dam, spanning Brazil’s Madeira River, may be an unalloyed good for the people who will have new or improved electrical service, but it’s less good for the villages that were uprooted and the 1,400 miles of jungle that were strung with electrical cables to make the project possible. Still elsewhere the story is one of disaster—as it was in Fukushima, Japan, where a 2011 tsunami deluged a nuclear power plant, endangering millions.
It’s an undeniable achievement that we can keep such a close, sharp eye on our world. It will be even more to our credit, however, if that ability leads us to care more for the world too.


Just reminding myself to read this






These are NOT in chronological order.

This was our favorite of the 
Cocodonuts coffee.

- note baselayer with thumb holes in sleeves - always wanted one! Need a turtlenecked one.

Bought one and ordered the other at Floating World...

Good things provided by my wife...

SWAG from the Flash Forward Podcast and Rose Eveleth!

Cocodonuts are the best in the area, but this is really great, really retro, and a block from my office!

Steak dinner in Metro before flight home on 1901.05.

Sushi lunch with Lori.


Reflect and connect.

Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.

I miss you so very much, Mom.

Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NEW (written 1708.27) NOTE on time: I am now in the same time zone as Google! So, when I post at 10:10 a.m. PDT to coincide with the time of your death, Mom, I am now actually posting late, so it's really 1:10 p.m. EDT. But I will continue to use the time stamp of 10:10 a.m. to remember the time of your death, Mom. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom.
