"A mythical bird that never dies, the phoenix flies far ahead to the front, always scanning the landscape and distant space. It represents our capacity for vision, for collecting sensory information about our environment and the events unfolding within it. A symbolic representation of the Death and rebirth of the sun. It is also described as being either eagle like or heron like. It lives on dew, killing nothing and crushing nothing that it touchesThe phoenix, with its great beauty, creates intense excitement and deathless inspiration." ~~
source: The Feng Shui Handbook, feng shui Master Lam Kam Chuen.The earliest reference to the Phoenix was made by Hesiod in the 8th century B.C., but the most detailed account is by Herodotus of Halicarnassus, the famous Greek historian in 5th century B.C

what to do when people leave your life, for no apparent reason
1. Do not hate them for it. They are on a journey too.
2. Understand that sometimes you will be a bandage caressing a temporary wound or you will be a pinnacle of permanency rooted deeply in their heart. Accept that you do this to people too.
3. Do not step on your feet trying to find a rhythm you are not meant to follow.
4. Do not let it harden you: continue to nurture, continue to love.
5. People use words as anchors to latch onto bits of you and when they leave remind yourself that the sea never bled itself dry because a ship left it.
6. Write the nastiest letter and burn it.
7. Yes, they may have illuminated pieces of you that you were unaware existed. But now you do and they are not the last person to remind you.
8. Dizzy yourself with everything you love, like dancing in the greenhouse to horrid pop songs or reading Haruki Murakami.
9. Set all that anger ablaze, you are wasting your time sifting through it.
10. Internalize the fact that you were still breathing before you met them.
11. Forgive them.

The Triumph of Amphitrite by Hughes Taraval
"The Yosemite Firefall was a summertime event that began in 1872 and continued for almost a century, in which burning hot embers were spilled from the top of Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park to the valley 3,000 feet below.
It was conducted by the owners of the Glacier Point Hotel. The firefalls ended in January 1968 when the National Park Service ordered it to stop because of the overwhelming number of visitors it attracted, plus the fact that it was not a natural event. The hotel itself was destroyed by fire one year later and was not rebuilt.
The Firefalls were performed at 9pm seven nights a week.”
And we listened to the waves as the music played in the distance on a misty cool night…

Also good for the kids. They encourage having slow readers read to the family pets. A dog will listen to a kid read a whole book one damn sssyl-la——-ble at a time, and it will never get frustrated, or correct their pronunciation, or start playing Angry Bird because it can’t stand listening to the slowness any more. The dog will look at the kid approvingly, because, human. Human is talking. Human is interacting.
So this is a great win-win.
I read somewhere the story behind the abrupt ending to the song. Basically the song is the last one on side ‘A’ of the record when it was first released, and it was the longest song they ever recorded but they didn’t want to shorten it so they left it as it is. The crackling that gets louder and louder towards the end is a sound made when a song runs onto the ‘inner grooves’ of a record, which normally never happens as it reduces the quality of the song and creates the crackling, but the Beatles liked that effect so they decided to let the song carry on until there is no more room on the record, (ran out of tape) hence the abrupt ending when the needle has dropped off the record so to speak..but also that It wasn’t just cut off, and nobody said “enough already”. John just said “cut it right there”. I find one thing strange about this song: right after the last “she’s so” you can easily tell that the guitars and drums aren’t on the same time.. Paul’s bass part is very creative and exceptional. He’s definitely thinking ‘out of the box’ here…
Lennon and Harrison overdubbed multi-tracked heavy guitars on 18 April 1969. Billy Preston’s keyboards and Ringo Starr’s congas were added on 20 April 1969. “I Want You” received the “She’s So Heavy” vocals on 11 August, and thus the title became “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)”. “‘She’s So Heavy’ was about Yoko,” Lennon told Rolling Stone. “When you’re drowning, you don’t say, ‘I would be incredibly pleased if someone would have the foresight to notice me drowning and come and help me.’ You just scream.” Three takes from 22 February were edited into a master (second generation), which was overdubbed, mixed down on 18 April (third generation), and overdubbed on 18 April, 20 April, 11 August and finally, 20 August. Different overdubs were made to the second generation tape on 8 August. The mix is the third generation for 4:37 and then the second generation tape, which has white noise produced by the Moog synthesizer played by Lennon and additional drums added on 8 August. The final overdub session for “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)”, which included the final mixing and editing.This was the last time all four Beatles worked in the studio together.

From 45 Years Ago We Landed Men on the Moon, one of 45 photos. Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, lunar module pilot, walks on the surface of the Moon near the leg of the Lunar Module (LM) “Eagle” during the Apollo 11 extravehicular activity on July 20, 1969. Astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, commander, took this photograph with a 70mm lunar surface camera. While astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin explored the Sea of Tranquility region of the Moon and astronaut Michael Collins, command module pilot, remained with the Command and Service Modules (CSM) “Columbia” in lunar orbit.
