Feeling very off balance these days:

New home (that is quite lovely, but still half-filled with half-unpacked boxes)
New job (in an industry I was sure I would never be in)
New town (in a pretty dang metropolitan area after a 5 year realization that I really love the country)
New geography (in a region of the country I never imagined living in)

Thing is, I’ve been really enjoying ALL of the above this past week, despite all that. Love the neighborhood that The Lady and I are in, love the food and arts about town, love the new adventure. So it’s throwing me a bit off balance, but in a good way.

This has been you semi-annual outpouring. We now return to your regular programming.

the remote and little known rice terraces of yuanyang county in china’s yunnan province were built by the hani people along the contours of ailao mountain range during the ming dynasty five hundred years ago. the terraces, once planted during the early spring season, are then irrigated with spring water from the forest above, which reflect sunlight to create the images seen here.

If there are aliens, they likely look like the Moss Piglet: can survive 10 yrs with no food/water, & vacuum of space.
