I am very concerned about our environmental problems.  I don’t think ocean’s temperature is rising or the polar ice caps are melting because it is just time for that to happen.  I think we contribute to  this problem with the amount of carbon dioxide we are pumping into the air.  I realize there are many people that think climate change is a hoax but I don’t agree. 

I am also concerned about all the plastic materials that are not being recycled and ending up in the ocean.  Yesterday I saw a post about the use of recycled plastic in roads in India and I was so pleased to see that.  I shared the information and someone said it was a bad idea.  The person said it was a environmental microplastic generator. I don’t get into debates on Facebook but I do look up issues to see what is a reasonable conclusion.  I found many articles that support the use of plastic for roads.  These articles carefully back up their position so I think the announcement about these roads is a good one. 

There are those that think the heating of the plastic can cause problems.  Here is a section of an article that explains how that is not the case.

To environmentalists who believe that the technology could be harmful because of toxic fumes from plastic residue, Dr Vasudevan points out that the plastic used is softened at 170C. “Plastic decomposes to release toxic fumes only if it is heated at temperatures above 270C (518F). So there is no question of toxic gases being released,” he says. Since plastic coats the stone and interacts with the hot bitumen, it’s properties change and it doesn’t break down when exposed to light and heat.

Here is the link to the whole article.  https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/jul/09/the-man-who-paves-indias-roads-with-old-plastic

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Reflects on Favorite Author and Not any time soon…

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I don’t have much to say about anything going on in the world.  I am encouraged by some events and discouraged by others.  I guess Dickens first line in Tale of Two Cities will always apply to this planet.  It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the epic of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way– in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only. 

I am, like many, a big Dickens fan and I have been fascinated by the sources for his novels.  They are mostly about specific events in his life.  Every one knows that David Copperfield is based on much of his life but I’ll bet not many people know that the character Estella from Great Expectations had her origin in the young actress Dickens left his wife for.  The character Tiny Tim was based on one of his girls that died when she was very young.  His father spent time in a Debtor’s prison like the father of the main character in Little Dorrit.  There are many more examples.  He wisely drew from his own life and created some of the most memorable and fascinating characters in literature.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

When I was young there were two things young guys did not do to their hair.  They did not shave their head when they experienced hair loss and they did not dye their hair a different color.  Yes, they let it grow which really shook up the previous generation but that was it. 

Times have certainly changed.  Now most guys have short hair but there are plenty that don’t and they have no problem with changing the color.  The famous violinist David Garrett is really a brunette but he dyes his hair blonde. 

I don’t have any problem with hair dye or long hair but I really have a problem with shaved heads.  I don’t know why but I prefer to see some hair. Anyway, Clyde still has plenty of hair and I told him that I would hate it if he shaved his head if he started to go bald. 

He pulled his beard.  Does it look like I am going to use a razor any time soon? 

I don’t think I will be seeing a shiny Clyde chrome dome in the future.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Checks out the Oscars and He Hopes it sprouts wings…

I was just looking at the oscar awards for this year and I have heard many people say they are pleased with the results. I used to keep up with the oscars since I am such a movie buff but I don’t follow them now that there is no end to the type of movies I can get on Netflix and at the library. 

I have found so many great independent films and foreign films that I have bought a number of them.  I have quite a collection and keep adding to it.  I love all kinds of movies and admire all the people that take part in producing them. 

I will definitely check out the winners when I get more time, especially At Eternity’s Gate starring Willem Defoe.  I am a big fan of his and there are two lesser known films that he starred in that I want to order.  Victory and The Reckoning.  Sam Neil also stars in Victory and I think it was one of, if not, his most powerful performances.

I even have a fantastic restored version of The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari which is one of the first horror films.  By today’s standards it is not that frightening but it is one of my all time favorite movies.  When it was first shown in Germany people were screaming in their seats.  How times change!  

I could go on and on. I still agree with those that think Citizen Kane is the greatest film ever made.  I think the main reason I am so impressed with it is the cinematography.  Orson Welles was a painter and the compositions in Citizen Kane are fantastic! 

Anyway, back to my work.  I was going to start another wildflower painting but I am thinking of painting a home flower garden.  I love the way some people arrange their flowers. 

So many ideas, so little time.  Cheers on a Monday!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

My phone is always beeping and booping at me.  It makes a type of bell sound every time Facebook adds something. When someone wants to contact me directly I get a sound that makes me think of the game of ping pong. 

Anyway, the other day it started sounding off and I told Clyde I had to talk to my phone too much of the time.  He said he wished it would sprout wings and go fly off a cliff. 

Gee, do you think Clyde hates cell phones?
