The Genesis For This Journey started with the Seder
The idea to explore the dreamscapes we live by started about 15 years ago at the end of a Seder. The Seder is a Passover meal commemorating the groups experience in Egypt characterized by the book of exodus. Murray got to thinking that the Seder story was like the world war one battle dream he had prior to his bar exam and his mountain climbing visionscape that accompanied his finishing four years at school. It occurred to him that the exodus story can be interpreted in a similar manner. There is the birthing experience of the city builders in Egypt with the plagues as the birthing contractions. Then there is the cutting of the umbilical cord across The Sea Of Reeds.  Next there is a year and a half of education and learning through writing at a mountain. Then you wander through the desert for a lifetime 38 years before going to the Promised Land. This is a foundational story that is reinforced in Murray’s ethnic group year after year. When he realized that he could apply this type of a story as a filter to facts on the ground that lead to these reoccurring images that help people live their lives. He then decided to go back into the earliest literature he could find such as Gilgamesh, Jubilee, and Genesis, the idea was to find out who these people were and what these people were doing that lead to the description of the godshead the way we have conceived it down through the generations. There were farmers and there were city builders. There was a God of Noah and a volcano god that lived in Turkey. We also have the Semites who had portable dogs that went with them.

1955 Fairlane Crown Victoria Skyliner
I spotted this nice 1955 Fairlane in the parking lot a while back
From wikipedia
Ford's 1954 Crestline Skyliner was replaced in 1955 by the Fairlane Crown Victoria Skyliner, based on the new 1955 Ford design. It shared the flashy chrome "basket handle" which stretched the B-pillar across the roof of the 1955 Crown Victoria model but added a smoked acrylic glass window over the front seat area. The model, commonly referred to as the "Glasstop Vicky" lasted just two years, with sales slipping sharply as customers realized the trouble of keeping the car cool. An optional snap-in sunshade or air conditioning system were desirable. The Skyliner name was later applied to the Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner hardtop convertible based on the 1957 Ford.

A rare stone parapegma is discovered on the island of Yeronisos. 
Information gathered from wikipedia
A parapegma is a device for keeping track of the 30-day lunar calendar and was a kind of Greek almanac that existed in the form an inscribed stone on which the days of the month were indicated by movable pegs inserted into bored holes. 
To accompany the parapegma there were also written texts. Ptolemy, the Alexandrian astronomer of the 2nd century wrote a treatise, Phaseis—"phases of fixed stars and collection of weather-changes" is the translation of its full title—the core of which is a parapegma, a list of dates of seasonally regular weather changes, first appearances and last appearances of stars or constellations at sunrise or sunset, and solar events such as solstices, all organized according to the solar year. With the astronomical computations were expected weather phenomena, composed as a digest of observations made by various authorities of the past. 

This finding is somewhat related to the video series I am helping with "Who Speaks For The Ancestors"
Four weeks of excavations on Yeronisos, the tiny islet off Paphos, have just been completed with a focus on a large complex for food preparation, distribution and storage facilities built along the southern edge of the island

The rarely seen back of the Hoover Dam before it filled with water 1936
From wikipedia
Hoover Dam, once known as Boulder Dam, is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between the U.S. states of Arizona and Nevada. It was constructed between 1931 and 1936 during the Great Depression and was dedicated on September 30, 1935, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Its construction was the result of a massive effort involving thousands of workers, and cost over one hundred lives. The dam was controversially named after President Herbert Hoover.
Hoover Dam impounds Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the United States by volume.[5] The dam is located near Boulder City, Nevada, a municipality originally constructed for workers on the construction project, about 30 mi (48 km) southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada. Hoover Dam is a major tourist attraction; nearly a million people tour the dam each year. Heavily travelled U.S. 93 ran along the dam's crest until October 2010, when the Hoover Dam Bypass opened.

Story
Tagline
My G+ stream is like following a virtual museum. Professional interests are Community Television, Video, Social Media, G+, & Dogs
Introduction

I am working on two community Television programs. One is about local history, places, and events and the other is about local dog culture. I am offering Sponsors the opportunity to have me as a Community Outreach Ambassador for the Long Beach, CA. area, Southern California, or to help connect with a modern dog culture. I can be your Community Liaison and friendly local spokesperson.

Some of my interests include behavior, history, art, geology, archaeology, and nature. Many people think I like country music because I wear a cowboy hat, but I really prefer classical music.

I am also interested in building websites, online marketing, and creating media. Especially video. I enjoy doing both online and offline video. If you are interested in talking about dogs, online learning, making websites, marketing, or media add me to your circle and let the conversation begin.
