{sunday valentine’s pic} James Clarke ~ A Valentine for Carrie 2016

James Clarke ~ A Valentine for Carrie 2016
James Clarke ~ A Valentine for Carrie 2016

Love, we’re going home now,
where the vines clamber over the trellis:
even before you, the summer will arrive,
on its honeysuckle feet, in your bedroom.

Our nomadic kisses wandered over all the world:
Armenia, dollop of disinterred honey–:
Ceylon, green dove–: and the Yang-Tse with its old
old patience, dividing the day from the night.

And now, dearest, we return, across the crackling sea
like two blind birds to their wall,
to their nest in a distant spring:

because love cannot always fly without resting,
our lives return to the wall, to the rocks of the sea:
our kisses head back home where they belong.

Pablo Neruda, Love Sonnet XXXIII

Happy Valentine’s Day!


I Scare Myself by Dan Hicks

Thomas Dolby performs ‘I Scare Myself’ at the Mill Valley Film Festival in 2014 with Dan Hicks (guitar), Zoe Keating (cello), Narada Michael Walden (drums) and Don Was (bass).

I scare myself
just thinking about you
I scare myself
when I’m without you
I scare myself
the moments that you’re gone
I scare myself
when I let my thoughts run

and when they’re runnin’
I keep thinking of you
and when they’re runnin’
what can I do?

I scare myself
and I don’t mean lightly
I scare myself
it can get frightenin’
I scare myself
to think what I could do
I scare myself
it’s some kinda voodoo

and with that voodoo
I keep thinking of you
and with that voodoo
what can I do?

but it’s oh so, so, so different
when we’re together
and I’m oh so so much calmer, I feel better
for the stars have crossed our paths forever
and the sooner that you realize it, the better

then I’ll be with you
and I won’t scare myself
and I’ll know what to do
and I won’t scare myself
and then I’ll think of you
and I won’t scare myself
and then my thoughts’ll run
and I won’t scare myself

then I’ll be with you
and I won’t scare myself
and I’ll know what to do
and I won’t scare myself
and I’ll think of you
and I won’t scare myself
and my thoughts will run
and I won’t scare myself…

{video} The Sun in Extreme Ultra-Violet—NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory


The sun is always changing and NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory is always watching. Launched on Feb. 11, 2010, SDO keeps a 24-hour eye on the entire disk of the sun, with a prime view of the graceful dance of solar material coursing through the sun’s atmosphere, the corona. SDO’s sixth year in orbit was no exception. This video shows that entire sixth year — from Jan. 1, 2015, to Jan. 28, 2016, as one time-lapse sequence. At full quality on YouTube, this video is ultra-high definition 3840×2160 and 29.97 frames per second. Each frame represents 2 hours. A downloadable version has a frame rate of 59.94 with each frame representing 1 hour. Read more here.

{video} David Bowie ~ Valentine’s Day


Here’s a real cheery one for all you lovers!

Valentine told me who’s to go
Feelings he’s treasured most of all
The teachers and the football star
It’s in his tiny face
It’s in his scrawny hand
Valentine told me so
He’s got something to say
It’s Valentine’s Day

The rhythm of the crowd
Teddy and Judy down
Valentine sees it all
He’s got something to say
It’s Valentine’s Day

Valentine told me how he’d feel
If all the world were under his heel
Or stumbling through the mall
It’s in his tiny face
It’s in his scrawny hand
Valentine knows it all
He’s got something to say
It’s Valentine’s Day

Valentine Valentine
Valentine Valentine

It’s in his scrawny hand
It’s in his icy heart
It’s happening today
Valentine Valentine

It’s in his scrawny hand
It’s in his icy heart
It’s happening today
Valentine Valentine
