ONCE upon a time Khidr, the Teacher of Moses, called upon mankind with a warning. At a certain date, he said, all the water in the world which had not been specially hoarded, would disappear.
 It would then be renewed, with different water, which would drive men mad.

 Only one man listened to the meaning of this advice. He collected water and went to a secure place where he stored it, and waited for the water to change its character. 

On the appointed date the streams stopped running, the wells went dry, and the man who had listened, seeing this happening, went to his retreat and drank his preserved water. When he saw, from his security, the waterfalls again beginning to flow, this man descended among the other sons of men.

 He found that they were thinking and talking in an entirely different way from before; yet they had no memory of what had happened, nor of having been warned. 

When he tried to talk to them, he realized that they thought that he was mad, and they showed hostility or compassion, not understanding. 

At first he drank none of the new water, but went back to his concealment, to draw on his supplies, every day. Finally, however, he took the decision to drink the new water because he could not bear the loneliness of living, behaving and thinking in a different way from everyone else.

 He drank the new water, and became like the rest. Then he forgot all about his own store of special water, and his fellows began to look upon him as a madman who had miraculously been restored to sanity.

Thanks fish!
 
Don't rely on other people and external events for happiness.

Unhappiness lies in that gap between what we have now and what we think we need. But the truth is, we don’t need to acquire anything more to be content with what we already have. We don’t need anyone else’s permission to be happy. Your life is magnificent not because someone says it is, or because you have acquired something new, but because you choose to see it as such. Don’t let your happiness be held hostage. It is always yours to choose, to live and experience.

As soon as you stop making everyone and everything else responsible for your happiness, the happier you’ll be. If you’re unhappy now, it’s not someone else’s fault. Take full responsibility for your own unhappiness, and you will instantly gain the ability to be happier. Stop seeking in vain to arrange conditions that will make you happy. Simply choose to appreciate the greatness that is yours in this moment, and the right conditions will start to line up around the contentment you seek.

The greater part of your happiness or unhappiness depends upon your outlook, and not upon our situation. Even if things aren’t perfect right now, think of all the beauty still left around you. A good reason to smile is always one thought away; choose to tap into it any time you like.

way cool!
 
On Monday, the J. Paul Getty Trust launched their Open Content Program, making more than 4,600 high-quality images of artwork available for free online. The digital images -- of paintings by Van Gogh, drawings by Rembrandt, and watercolors by Dürer -- had already fallen into the public domain, but the Getty's program makes their digital reproductions much easier to use on the web.
They're not the first museum to put so many images online this year. In the spring, the Rijksmuseum opened 125,000 digital images for use, with plans to digitize an additional 40,000 images from its archive every year.
When museums emancipate images like this, the benefits don't only redound upon the researchers, teachers, and students who can use and show high-resolution art in their books, lectures and papers. Putting images online helps anyone who wants to make a point with pictures, whether on their website or Facebook profile, on a t-shirt or, as a Rijksmuseum curator told the New York Times, on special Rembrandt toilet paper.

Story
Introduction
There is no Future, only an Ever Accelerating Now.

I have a small design shop on cafepress.com/underbrain, where I sell Nerd/Geek related tshirts and swag. I've been having great fun and getting a positive response.

I was the tech monkey and an apprentice glassblower at the DO U GLASS Hot Shop, part of the Douglass School Art Place, in Murphysboro, IL.
I was born in downtown Los Angeles and was raised between there and a small town in San Diego County called Fallbrook. I am a combo city boy/small town type. I am shameless Californian, with a long time love of the Pacific Ocean. I am currently landlocked in Southern Illinois, which is beautiful, but has "very interesting" weather/climate.

I am also an undergraduate student at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, finishing a degree in Information Systems Technologies begun over 20 years ago.

I was a cryptographic radio electronics tech in the U.S. Navy many years ago. I have been a field tech of one sort or another over my career. I am a MCSE and have a number of other tech certifications (for what that is worth) and have taught technology from in-house training to teaching vocational rehabilitation.

I have a long time interest in MBTI and consider myself to be an INTJ/P.

I try to achieve balance in my life between Art and Science. I find the blend to be more interesting then either standing alone.

My favorite quote is:
"Complex problems have simple, easy to understand wrong answers." H.L. Mencken (1895-1956)
