Images from the Week

All set for my job interview and a curious, glowing rock at Frenchman's house.

The music corner and Katie, anxiously awaiting the birth of a new calf.

Frenchman playing guitar, the book of fractals and tarot card meanings.

This week was very interesting and busy going to interviews, completing assignments, promoting the job fair, and spending time rehearsing for my sister's benefit concert.

I had fun visiting Frenchman and learning about fractals. They are shapes that mirror themselves on the macro and micro scale. So for example, a triangle made up of triangles made up of triangles. I was intrigued by the fact that fractals are more recent in study, coming long after Euclid, with people researching and trying to figure them out all the time. I had no idea that they could be found in nature, for example in aveoli and tree branches. Fractals make me think of the idea that the universe could be just a molecule of some other universe, and that an eyelash could make up a whole galaxy for other creatures.

It was nice seeing my little sister's friends and catching up with people at my church who I haven't seen for a long time. Plus, the coffee and squares are always nice. They give me something to jog off.

Great Photos! You look splendid
in a suit. I am wondering if that
lamp is made of salt - puts
ions in the air or something -
and evaporates over time.
I think so.

I love the cello - if i could
afford one I would teach myself
to play - i can play the violin
by ear and the cello makes me
all still inside. And present.

maddy -your guess is as good as mine on the rock. It sorta felt like there were good ions in the air. The instrument is a bass, but the cello is neat too. Once I took my sister's cello and put a guitar pick-up on it so that I could amplify it. I put it on distortion and rocked out on the cello. That was fun.

lorena -Always gotta keep on top of things, and make sure your tie is straight! :)

mayimakeyousmile -The interview was a score and the calf was too. He was running around like an energetic little calf should. (They get up and walk the first day they are born, unlike humans)

Did the mother have to lick the calf's anus to get the glands active??

anonymous -Sometimes I skip over the details.

nabeel -Thanks mate. I got the job as media relations personnel for an organization that specializes in solutions to issues of governance worldwide. They have a portal which connects diverse people and is like one big virtual room for researchers and scholars. We (us students) went out to track down positions for our 'placement' which is required for the diploma I'm currently studying. It's kinda like coop. It's only six weeks, and unpaid. However, it's very good experience, and I get out of school into the real world! So I'm very excited.
