I'm a sort of creative person, seeking the meaning of life . Hard to capture the essence of the mind/brain/soul - but I delight in arguing with ultra-materialists on consciousness. Ah! the smell of a rose and its redness, the smell of a fine wine, a sunset, - great stuff, and all subjective. Oh yeah and actually am Scorpio by 4 hours according to expert astrologer friend - blogger auto-star-sign system missed the fact that I'm on the cusp. Though I agree with Casius when he said "the fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings".

Some older proto-entries

Here's a few old diary type entries before I blogged:

Grateful for being financially okay, healthy, IQ 136 or higher.
Mon 10th – Pay You’s story in the swimming class – swam well. Nice reading to midnight

Tue may 11th – dentist okay. Picking up C from Kipf. Way she said ‘lovely Spring’ as we were alone together in the garden. N’s nice essay or description, rather.

2005-01-30 – as hurt wrist pouring from heavy bottle realised how wonderful fully functioning wrist and all body parts are ß and how we only realise it when one goes wrong – the wonder of it is almost frightening.

Look, don’t have time for blow-by-blow every day – today this list
- Survived another Kid’s birthday party unscathed – N’s 11th with 3 friends went off well.
- Anomalism is at an interesting point: JBIS article by Haisch et al. on UFOs - never could have imagined that years ago.
- U2 praised as rivals to Beatles on afn radio talked of punk origins in Dublin of early 80s. Made me think of me as mote in a radiation of brilliance and magnificence from the Dublin Diaspora of that time.
- Heim stuff getting more interesting – Jordi recognises my victory in the Heim debate on Wikipedia.

2005-02-05 – Restful weekend – N sick but improving and can rest tomorrow, Rosenmontag. Both girls good school reports on Friday, so we feel good having 2 clever girls. Fasching speeches and TV shows are fun, as was house of shadows in scary way. My black and white drawings/illustrations scan in more easily than I’d thought, and I found the comic strips to scan in, so it’s looking good for a PABD run in a month or so. Good feeling that the old cartoons & drawings will reach a wider audience.

2005-02-14 – We had a good weekend & it was a good Monday today. Yesterday made aubergine Parmesan (2 batches as we ran short last time with Sabine & Tomas or Gaby).
Ca helped me a lot, first salting the Aubergines, then wit h the sauce and then frying – she speeded up as I’d have been real stressed otherwise making 3 lots (1 potatoes only for kids). Rene & Cherry liked it a lot and I could taste myself that it turned out well. Nice talks with R & Ch. Today in forest lucky in morning that it was dry (it was sunny too yesterday when R & Ch came, just as I’d prayed for to avoid muddy shoes…) and in Evening though it was raining a bit it soon stopped and Klinsacker Schneise was not really wet at all – and it was finally bright enough to see tree roots etc. Swimming fine too and feel bit tired now but satisfied with exercise, after so long without due to ice and rain. Oh and yesterday to top a fine day suddenly the internet was working! Though we hadn’t yet received the DSL router. Theory that we were tapping into Hegeman’s router or similar. Strange, but we got a good preview of working with the DSL interface. Today it was gone again – but we’ll have own router later this week.
