Ellen Lattz, "unbound" 2017.png

Sometimes I have something specific that  I want to say, but when I look at the blank sheet in front of me, my mind gets just as wiped clean.  Nothing comes to the surface of my thoughts.  All the important, fun stuff I was going  to say remains buried in the murky depths of the thought scape.

Today, I thought I would try to reverse the process.  I begin with no particular thought in mind.  I write with no fixed destination.  The hope is, that the view will become interesting, that an intriguing scene will spring into being suddenly blooming into a fertile vista that will stretch to the horizon, dragging my eager fingers with it on the keyboard.

It’s been raining for a couple of days reminding me of the children’s tale, “The Cat In The Hat.”  I wonder if Dr. Seuss began his story as a result of being cooped up with his pets by rain.   Perhaps he consoled himself with this tale after having to clean up after dogs and children that needed to go outside occasionally, and also needed to be let back in, mud and all.

We are forecast to have more storms moving in from the west.  It is snowing out there.  Will it get colder here?  Will the water stay on the ground, instead of running off into the already full creek?  I’m reminded of Queensland’s recent inundation.  500,000 cattle were drowned in the flooding.  along with everything else that couldn’t make it out of the area in time.  I don’t anticipate there being that much water here, but them again, Queensland didn’t anticipate that much water either.

We take for granted that we will have time to do things in the future. A future that isn’t guaranteed to happen, and if it does happen, not necessarily in the way we were planning. I have children I was planning on spending more time with, and Grandchildren I wanted to get to know. We don’t always get what we want.

If I had the time to do the things I wanted to do, one of the things would be to build interesting things with them.  To discover their passions, and help them realize even more capabilities.  I’d like to engage with them in creative things they never thought of doing.  To watch them find delight in the work of their hands, and satisfaction in completing a task and watching the results.

I’d like to garden with them, build homes with them, paint with them, and watch their joy.  I’d  teach them to throw pots, make bricks, and make useful, sometimes beautiful items to enrich their lives, and the lives of others. I’d build kilns with them, glaze pots, and fire them into glorious life.  I’d teach them about printing presses, typeset, and telling stories in both pictures and font. Maybe some of these things will get to happen. Maybe this rain won’t destroy the possibilities.  Maybe this rain will inspire me, and them, instead.

If we have time together, I want to hear about what they love, and what they hope to be able to pursue in the future.  I hope that their current experiences don’t lead them to anger, resentment, and destruction.  There is enough of that already in our world.  We are drowning in the results of piled on finger pointing.

We’ve been very carefully taught to play the blame game through our social and educational settings. This attitude is destroying our better creative urges. You can’t make wonderful things while you are engaged in the radical overthrow of everything around you. The two activities don’t compliment each other. I hope we have time to talk about these things. I hope we can re-direct all this pent-up energy back into constructive dialogue, and increased understanding.

We do need a radical overhaul, not necessarily of the physical reality, but mostly of our collective thinking. We need a radical change of heart; a national repentance from where we’ve been, and what we’ve been engaged in.  We all got too comfortable and dis-engaged from duties and responsibilities. We allowed those to fall to others while we pursued petty vanities.

We worked to keep up with the Jones’s and Kardashian’s instead of staying involved in civic planning.  We let people frighten us into giving up not only our freedoms, but also the best of our independence.  We gave up our personal livestock and gardens. We allowed others to dictate what the definition of poverty was.

Instead of a plethora of skills and abilities, which comes with farming and animal husbandry, we fell for the images of wealth, ease, and affluence displayed by those who used the work of our hands to get that.  Our gardens, chickens, pigs and cows were not what held us back. Those are the very things which kept us from positions of begging, of want, and of servitude.

Eventually, we allowed our leadership to trade off our manufacturing jobs, albeit we didn’t understand that was what would happen. We believed the leadership had our best interests at heart.  We weren’t paying attention to history, to what had just happened to others who did the same things, even within our own lifetimes. We allowed ourselves to be distracted by easy entertainment, and rah, rah, chants for teams that played games.  We were lulled by the soothing  sound of “people don’t think that way” and “nobody would do that”, even though we have seen many places where they most certainly Did do that.

If we are fortunate. we will get those jobs back.  If we are dutiful, we can take back control of our civic zoning laws. We can kick out those who wish to frighten us with their tales of health risks, and get back the real health that comes with home grown garden vegetables and clean fertilizer from our own farm animals. Our own chickens will go back to being our natural pesticide squad, and our own cow’s raw milk will be the source of our strength.  Our livestock will once again be the source of our butter and egg money.  Our earned extra.  Our surplus that we use to save and trade for those things we don’t grow or make ourselves.

If we are given the time, if the Good Lord is willing, and the creeks don’t rise, we will rebuild that which was lost. We will improve on what went on before by being more cooperative with each other. We can learn to diversify the works of our hands, while specializing in those things we have a knack for.

Imagine a block of homes, where the open areas are gardened and farmed in a collective effort. Where we put the land under our feet to good use for our health, instead of poisoning it into only growing skinny, short grasses.

Imagine learning to grow edible flower gardens as once was done; where we remember that Passion flowers make good fruit and jelly, and aren’t for just looking at.  The knowledge of these things hasn’t yet been destroyed. It is in our libraries and on the internet. Some of it resides in the memories of our Grandparents, who actually used to do some of the things we’ve lost, or who watched their Grandparents do the things we only see in pictures now.  Our elderly may not have the physical strength they once had, but they have the memories we can learn from. They are a valuable resource, if we will only remember to honor them and allow them to instruct us in a few things once more.

If we can learn to merge the use of the new things, with the activities of the old things, we will be twice as rich, twice as capable, twice as safe, and twice as secure.  We will have the advantages of new creations, with the security of the old skills. We can engage in new pursuits while keeping the ability to do for ourselves, and provide for our own security.  Independence requires work. Work provides dignity and self-respect.  Self-respect is a component of happiness.  The pursuit of happiness isn’t found in too much ease; it’s found while engaged in worthwhile labor.

I hope I live to see my children and grandchildren able to implement these activities. I hope they will have the opportunity to build a better world, a more cooperative world, a more diverse in activities world, a healthier world. We had a world like that once. it was depicted in the 70’s T.V. show “The Waltons.” I hope my Grandchildren live to build it again, and improve on it.

I recently watched a video made more than six months ago by JayDreamerZ.  It is still very relevant in todays environment. The topic he discussed is a growing debate. During the presentation he challenged viewers of a different opinion to give him ten reasons why he should see things from their perspective.  He said that so  far, no one he had spoken to could do that/or would.  I am taking up that challenge.  I am not making fun of Jay, nor any of his viewers.  I realize that this new push has only recently become an issue, and I  have seen some of the videos that are making this argument. They are very well produced, and very convincing.  I’m not a scientist, so my reasons for still believing in a globular world are from more experiential evidence.

Reason number 1) the sky that is viewed from the southern hemisphere is radically different from the sky that is seen from the northern hemisphere. The sailors of old who learned to navigate this globe had to find a different stable guide to follow in order to have some sense of which direction they were going in. The southern cross pointed at the most stable place in the sky in the south. The big dipper points to a stable place in the sky in the north, (or it did before our magnetic north moved…. )   These stable locations are caused by the relative stability of the spin, which creates the axis of the world we live on.  Incidentally, that same spinning earth interacts with the cosmic rays of the sun to produce the ozone that we all depend on to help screen us from those same cosmic rays.

Reason number 2) When I drive across the United States on I-70 from the east to the west, I see the tops of the Rockies (Pikes Peak) rise above the horizon long before I see the foothills; the tops of those mountains are a lot further away than the foothills, and the foothills are not small. No argument that my sight of them is clouded by a mist from the earth will work here, especially since Colorado is a fairly dry state.

Reason number 3) When it’s summer in the southern hemisphere it is winter in our northern hemisphere, and vice, versa.  This is explained very nicely by the tilted spinning axis of our world. The demonstration of the simplified pictorial view that the world should face the wrong way on the other side of the world six months later does not defeat this logic.  There are entirely too many influences on the world by other outside magnetic forces (other planets) which would cause the worlds spin to slow down and make it come out exactly the way it is…..

Reason number 4) The world has been broken up (per Velikovsky, who I also read in my youth) and this breaking is still going on. I encourage you to look at Dutchsince on youtube. He is Not a professional geologist; but gives Very Cool earthquake coverage everyday with predictions you can actually track with him. I think you will enjoy his efforts that produce the work you’ll see in his videos.

Reason number 5) If the earth was shaped the way that it is being presented by the pushers of the flat earth, it would take much longer to get around the world from the outer circumference than it does to get around the world from the inner circumference… That doesn’t happen. If you go around the world on any of the same paralells, if you travel by air, the 30th parallel in the north,  and if you travel the same way on the 30th parallel in the south, it takes the same amount of time to get around the world and back to the same location you started from. That would not happen in the view of the flat earth that is being presented to you.

Reason number 6) As the disturbance from the entrance of Nibiru/Nemesis continues to affect us with it’s magnificent magnetic presence, it pulls on our spin and causes the movements within the world; which are manifesting in a huge increase in both volcanic and earthquake activity because it is moving the middle of the worlds spin into a new place. Centrifugal forces push the world to bulge outward where the new equator is located. (Look at the new upward push in the Gulf of Mexico). This is ongoing…. and it may continue to move, and change where it will end up.  In the meantime, the very wealthiest among us have been preparing for this day for a long time. They have known this was going to happen for the last fifty years so they prepared very luxurious underground bunkers for themselves to retreat into, leaving the rest of us in the dark. I’ll leave it up to you to do the research, as it is apparent you are very good at doing that. Dig deep.

Reason number 7)  Those who site the efforts of people to find the curve from the surface with lasers… sigh …. the round earth isn’t perfectly round… obviously.. If you point a laser up I-70 across Kansas, it will appear that you can do that seemingly forever. but Kansas rises in elevation from one side to the other. It is tilted up all the way toward the Rocky Mountain Massif. The earth has many different elevations from the sea level, which sea level itself isn’t stable, because of tides.

Reason number 8) The tidal forces that pulled from the moon’s pull…. whether you call it gravity or resonance, or magnetism, (may all have the same effect… essentially). This is apparent with the tides, and the water levels are not perfectly flat anywhere.. and at different times of day you will get different results. If the water were stable, it would curve downward in it’s sandy, rocky earthly vessels as it does in a glass of water.

Reason number 9) Although there is definitely a whole set of flat projections of the magnetically spinning galaxies, the parts within the spin are all round (ish), so are we, that is this earth is essentially rounded, though the water on the one side has got to be heavier;  if you have ever driven a truck with liquid in it (the big rigs) you would notice how the weight of the water sloshing around causes the motion of your truck to lurch from side to side…

Reason number 10) You are right about the “news” people who make fun of others with sneering condescension. That is the whole point of the money suddenly backing this push. The very places that you went to look this stuff up. Where did that come from? It didn’t exist before the last year. Where did the money come from that so very professionally produced those videos? They were put out there to produce this very division and intellectual schism. This is a professional set-up. And it’s working. Don’t let them get away with this. Is there new real science out there? Yes. Are there new answers to old questions? yes. Are we getting information out to people that should have been out to them Ages ago? yes. Don’t let the professional con-artists derail this effort by the insertion of this new piece of professionally presented twisted truth, and then laugh at us for falling for it. Don’t let their mis-use of real science once again push us off course.

Hello again. It’s been a little while and a lot of things have happened since I was on here last.  I finished my course work at the University of Louisville (I still have to finish paying for it, but that is coming soon).  I had a show in the Hite Art Galleries, and took it back down. Graduation will come and go, and now I’m looking for additional work, both to live on, and to finish paying for school, and to start paying for the student loans I took out while in school. While I was searching for types of work I also discovered that there is a whole new push for people to believe that the earth is flat.  Where did this come from? Definitely not from my science classes.

I cannot tell you how taken aback this makes me…..  Well, if you aren’t one of the people already pushing this new theory, it probably makes you feel that way too. So, I’ve looked at a whole lot of videos, and I’ve examined what I know from my own experience, and I’ve looked at several different types of science expansions on the knowledge I already had.

We’ve already seen there is plenty of information out there that isn’t a true reflection of reality.  Some of it is very well produced.  It looks and sounds legitimate.  We’ve all been subjected to news in the past that was not a true reflection of what actually happened…. so it’s fairly obvious that someone, maybe a lot of someone’s are making stuff up; lying very professionally, making things appear to be true through backing by verified authorities and verified science.  So now the job is to sift out what is real from what isn’t real.

What makes this so very difficult, is that there is some truth in all of it.  Don’t the best lies have to have a foundation of truth to be believed?  It only takes a twist and an extension along the lines of the twist to move us along to something that is patently false, but because of the foundation of truth, the association with something we know to be real and have experienced as valid, we swallow the rest of the narrative. We end up embracing a fairy tale.  We end up accepting the lies that we are told, and giving authority to someone who doesn’t deserve out trust, or our respect, because he or she is lying to us. The originator of the lie Knows where the truth is and where the lie begins.

To make this worse, once a few people that we have experienced as being valid and truthful, have been convinced of the lie, the weight of their belief moves us further in the direction of believing it too, even if we had some doubts. Even if our experience doesn’t jive with what we are being told. We end up believing what we are told to believe, and not what we see and feel to be right.

So to let you know, I do NOT believe that the earth is flat.  I do believe that there is a very professional set of characters who have created a whole lot of valid looking scenarios that they claim we should believe makes their claims real.  I believe we are being set up.

All the advances of the past five hundred years have been because we finally got off the flat earth belief and got Back to the knowledge of a Round earth.  Our ability to communicate over distances is because we believed in a round earth, and were no longer afraid we would fall off of it when we sailed away from the sight of our shores. Our ability to navigate by the stars is because we have a round earth, and their paths are then more fixed and predictable. Especially the pole star.  That star which is positioned where the apex of our tilted axis points, and therefor does not appear to dance around the globe with our movement, but sits still, because the spin around that point isn’t wide enough to cause it to appear to shift.

That point and magnetism (which is also fed and caused by the spinning of our globe and the interaction of that spin with the rays of the sun, which together create a magnetic dynamo effect, and incidentally produce ozone) allowed sailors to navigate by a compass which pointed to a magnetic north.  When sailors move their ships past the equator, the skies they are looking at  become different, and the pole stars they steer by are also different. their compass them points in the other direction. A sailor of old had to know two different sets of stars to successfully navigate the whole world. If your world were flat, there wouldn’t be a southern cross that stayed at a fixed location to steer by in the southern hemisphere.

Don’t let the wealthy con-artists of the world fool you into believing in their fairy tale. They are only spending their money on this effort because they plan on using this new falsehood to enslave you further, and secure power for themselves.

I am in my last Semester of the BFA program I embarked on back in 2014. Some of my Art work will be displayed in the Hite Art Institute’s galleries Beginning on April 5th, and running through the 20th of the month. As is the case with most students in their last year, I’m quite ready to leave this space of learning and explore doing things on my own now. I have had some excellent instructors here, and I would like to give credit where it is due.

My Printmaking instructor, Rachel Singel, had faith in me with very short notice for the creation of a Body of Work for the BFA review. Kudo’s to her.

In order to complete the program here, I was also required to add some more classes in English and humanities and science.  I’ve loved them all. Some of them got less of my attention than they deserved simply because I didn’t have the time, or the presence of mind in some cases, to give it to them while I was in them.  Some of these subjects will get revisited again after I am out on my own.  I hope I will find some time to expand on what was begun. Kudo’s to the Professors who patiently led us through what were very deep subjects, with well  prepared lesson plans and a strong background in them.  Thank you for your dedication.

In the end, I finally took a creative writing course. I don’t know why I hadn’t had one of these before, but I’m loving it.  Maybe it’s good that it has come last. It frees me for exploration in ways that I might not have had if I had crammed it into the middle of everything else. Kudo’s to this instructor too.

Ian Stansel is very patient with all of us; and I give much credit to his prodding and encouragement.  His suggestions for improvement, and his pointing out of deficiencies prompt another look at what, in my self-satisfaction, I miss.  The obviousness of missing information, which, when I was a technical writer, I was all too aware of, and watched out for, because the end user Needs All the steps (it is Not intuitive) jumps out at him, but not so much at me, because I have all the references to it in my head.  I will expand on the subjects to make them clearer. I will remember that the reader is not the writer, and needs more of the background for the subject.

Thank you all for giving me a stronger preparation for launching myself into the world. Thank you for your assistance in becoming a stronger individual.

Luciffer versus The Lord (Madach) Slovenčina: ...

Luciffer versus The Lord (Madach) Slovenčina: Lucifer proti Pánovi (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

When once I glanced upon a star aglow in all it’s glory,

I chanced to wonder just how far its light had traveled nearly.

And does it have a limit to how long its glow will tarry?

Or can it burn forever bright as far as light will carry?

If once it shudders and collapses is it because it’s weary?

Or can a star, rebellious, find past limits cost most dearly?

What is a black hole made of? Is it matter, anti-matter?

Or is a star intelligent, or mad as the Mad Hatter?

Once collapsed but previously, a star, so shining brightly.

Was it once an added upon of souls that traveled rightly?

Can I but dwell in righteousness, will I journey so directly?

Or maybe stop one step away, dwell first as planet, earthy.

When star was sun, did it by chance deny its truest maker?

And as result, get cast away, a swirl of Outer Darkness?

Did it refuse to operate as light source for creation?

Or was there something else that stopped its brilliant conflagration?

Did it swell with pride, its limit reach, strained to go much further,

and thus, collapse into itself, from reaching too much over.

Like Lucifer who shone so bright, and fostered insurrection,

did it try to take on too much power and end its sussuration?
