WAVING NOT DROWNING



I called this picture "Waving not drowning" because of one of my favourite poems which is:
  
Not Waving but Drowning

Nobody heard him, the dead man,
But still he lay moaning:
I was much further out than you thought
And not waving but drowning.

Poor chap, he always loved larking
And now he's dead
It must have been too cold for him his heart gave way,
They said.

Oh, no no no, it was too cold always
(Still the dead one lay moaning)
I was much too far out all my life
And not waving but drowning.

COMMUNICATING

Being the first time I'm posting in this blog, I feel thrilled but at the same time a bit worried. Do I have interesting ideas or preferences that are worth mentioning? I guess this is a question a lot of us wonder everyday. Am I entitled to questioning? Do I even know what to say and what to say? Is anyone interested in what I think or say?

Ha, communicating. one of the most difficult things in the world.
Isn'it?

2045, THE YEAR COMPUTERS BECOME MORE INTELLIGENT THEN MEN

Read in TIME magazine:

Raymond Kurzweil believes that we're approaching a moment when computers will become intelligent, and not just intelligent but more intelligent than humans. When that happens, humanity — our bodies, our minds, our civilization — will be completely and irreversibly transformed. He believes that this moment is not only inevitable but imminent. According to his calculations, the end of human civilization as we know it is about 35 years away.

DEPRESSION AND ITS EFFECTS ON OUR SENSES

http://discovermagazine.com/2010/dec/01-how-depression-dulls-the-world-literally?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+DiscoverMag+%28Discover+Magazine%29&utm_content=Google+Reader

This recent study shows how depression really dulls our senses. What a shame some people still think depression is just a "state of mind" that will just go away.

GREAT MUSIC
