A Certain Frequency of Red Light Boosted People’s Eyesight in New Study

Scientists in the UK think they may have found a cheap, low-tech way to help fight age-related loss of vision. In a small clinical trial, people over 40 who were told to stare into a deep red light for three minutes a day had noticeable improvements to their sight. They reported being able to see better in the dark…Read more...

"Isn't it beautiful?" — a middle-aged white woman enthused gently...

... as I was photographing this... ... in downtown Madison. Maybe she was just trying to say the right thing, but maybe she was delusional or had very low standards. I aim to help — and I have to admit that she wasn't the slightest bit intimidating to me — so I said, "Actually, I don't think this one is very good." In my endless search for positivity, I added that there were a lot of other murals and many of them were good. And then, because I'm always looking for a point of agreement, I said, ...

Use the time you have to know yourself

I say things over and over again. Usually as I am going.  Probably because they work more than once. And that is reassuring. I am on a side trip here for the weekend. Continuing with new eyes. But I do this with Big Cloth too. Manage thickness as I go.  Managing is that, problem solving in the moment. Tending to need. While holding on to the bigger picture.   Link to video if you see no player. It took hours. In the scheme of all things, not long really.  I enjoyed it a lot more with the e...

Stay Home, Share, and consider When Time is not about Money

What Runs Through my Mind

T here were long wild dreams. I woke up and spoke the words, The Spell is Broken. I lost part of the thread in waking. I guess there was a story. There was a bit of work on this in the evening before sleep. Some thin silk to fill in the whites of the new eyes. I will work the third one in stitch. I like variation in technique in one piece. It raises the awareness of change in the expected. This split image is interesting. It would be interesting to see both side of things at the same time, no...

Overlapping Fields

  F ield. Many definitions, but for me a space defined, chosen, within all other spaces that might act as a guide for focus. As in field of vision I suppose. And then and course, a place for wild open growth and play. An open field. Like Feeling Free. I play with the circle a lot, but not always. As I look at the quilts I have made, these shaped overlays, fields of focus, are fairly constant. Sometimes they happen at the beginning. As a base. Sometimes they are a tool to bring things together...

It's March!

day 13 F eel it . Smell it. Spring. I'm charged.  This morning the window sill glowed.  And then , I changed my mind. I want need this window to go all the way to the floor. It's in my head now. It's a must. I'm changing furniture around again. That's a good sign. And yesterday, while splitting old logs, we met our first Eastern Eyed Click Beetle .  At first I thought it was a snake or something... I put a link here 'if you be curious', those are false eyes...

  R ain again, fog, grey February, but no real snow. So warm, but cold returns tomorrow morn, in some big way. Kitchen window. Grandma's glass door knob. Always love how it twists things.  Here it's own little world, pushing all else out of focus.     Two wet racoons just slowly walked by across my field of vision. I did not think to pick up the camera. I noticed that. I picked this one today. To think about. Again. To show you, Again. Weathering A Storm . Now aka just Thinking ....

After all these years, the Lamb of God is looking at you.

That's a closeup of the central figure in the Ghent Altarpiece, before and after restoration. The great masterpiece by Hubert and Jan Van Eyck (1432) had been painted over in the 16th century, and people had gotten used to the eyes way off to the side. But the image on the right puts the eyes back where Hu and Jan had them.I'm reading "Ghent Altarpiece: Lamb's 'alarmingly humanoid' face surprises art world" (BBC). Smithsonian Magazine is quoted saying "These features are 'eye-catching, if not al...

Open Your Eyes to Love

What I have experienced in my life has shown me that love is real, and that we are here on Earth to experience love in action through living our Vision of life. I am not referring to love as in the Cinderella story which requires one person to complete another. Rather I now have a clear awareness that love is a vibrational energy that transcends our lives from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Love starts with self. Learning to overcome one’s own self-blame, shame and guilt is the starting poin...

8:30 AM Last night, In the muted cloud filtered moonlight, I was suddenly sitting IN one of Valerianna's paintings . I have one right here. On the wall in front of me. It wasn't rolled up but sandwiched between rolls of cloth to keep it safe. Her calendars are on sale now, I love her work and the life she celebrates. The simple nature of it. Reminds me of Simpler Times. Simple is no small thing these days. I'm going to take a few stitches. I'll put them here later... Later...

Creeptastic eye pies

"Look into my pies" Baker Lorraine Elliott has just the thing to bake this Halloween: creepy, vanilla-scented rhubarb "eye pies." A conversation with her friend Nina inspired them: "I'm so hungry I'm going to eat someone's face off!" she said with madness in her eyes, while kneeling dangerously close to my face. "How long have you been on this diet?" I asked. "A day," she said solemnly. ...I offered her a rhubarb tart but alas that wasn't high protein enough. Moral of the story: eat pies even on...

Text from The Japan Times, 10/12/19.

The Complex Eye

M ost of my thoughts, lately, have to do with Perspective. And the confusion in how we might see things differently than others. Even, over time, differently than our other selves.  For me, there seems to be a new one born at every moment.  And I think that is good.  Because if I live long enough I might have enough eyes to make some sense of it all.

  A ll things mechanical seem to have failed me this week. Technology related. Today it is Gmail of all things. But  I do keep at it. Technology is a thread. Here is a blurry pic of  Eye woman .

I think, to work on this from both sides might be appropriate. While trying to imagine what the inside looks like.  Vision, Perspective, how it mi...
