Dreams Are More Precious Come see, high above. Come see, high in the heavens. A new star shining bright. Out of the darkness, comes a light. Come here, midnight chimes Come here, bells that are ringing And from some distant shore Sounds of a journey, echo on This is the night They say, Everyone wants
Eulogies, photos and remembrances for my brother-in-law David C. Hill.
Considering the number of times the Diety’s name is used during everyday use, it clearly is a religion.

One of my favorite places at the University of Colorado was the High Voltage Electron Microscope lab in the Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology building.

Very compelling time-lapse tilt-shift video of New York – taken in several locations over the course of a day. The detail is endless, both in the stationary and the moving elements. The harbor is impressive to watch, boats dancing on the water, helicopters coming and going like mosquitos.
Hat tip to Pink Tentacle (which has excellent background on this video)
Fantastic. Available in 1080P fullscreen at YouTube.
