I’ve backed out to the old version of my blog’s theme after a new upgrade of the Inanis theme I was using changed things to unreadable. I don’t have time to debug it over the next few days, hence the backout until I can spend some time on what went wrong.
Autumn Comes to Kansas
The first yellow leaves on the Redbud tree.
I’m Just Searching for That Rainbow
Here’s a picture of double rainbows over the ocean while we wait on Spring, and a snip of an Emerson poem:
Yet whirl the glowing wheels once more,
And mix the bowl again;
Seethe, fate! the ancient elements,
Heat, cold, wet, dry, and peace, and pain.
Let war and trade and creeds and song
Blend, ripen race on race,
The sunburnt world a man shall breed
Of all the zones, and countless days.
No ray is dimmed, no atom worn,
My oldest force is good as new,
And the fresh rose on yonder thorn
Gives back the bending heavens in dew.
“Song of Nature” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
So far I am liking the new WP, poking around the new icons and dashboard, taking it for a spin. I’m blogging this direct from Dashboard.
Update: I am liking it, I rearranged my dashboard, loaded plugins directly, tried a few new themes. Kudos to the dev team for a job well done.
I’ve got a lot of loose ends from the year to wrap up, so once I get on vacation you will probably see a glut of posts to wrap up the year. There are many posts that were merely part 1 of a series that become extremely important as we go into an Obama administration and a rebirth from the ashes of the Republican party.
Some of the loose ends:
Hunger and the Economic downturn
Energy Futures under the Obama Administration
The rest of the who is We series
Some better analysis of what’s going on in Pakistan and India post-Mumbai
More on the Global Warming debate
I’ve also been looking through some of my past posts on Pakistan and my original naivete from both my original ignorance of culture in Pakistan coupled with an optimistic long-term outlook shines through in a few places – I’ll be correcting and updating some of those. Blogging is nothing if it’s not both truth and a learning experience.
Tonight’s moon is just beginning to wane.
