We hear so much bad news all the time, here is a great story with a real hero from these passengers stuck on an Amtrak train –

I got the opportunity to see the King Tut (correct: King Tutankhamunexhibit here at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.

Words cannot express the magnificence of it all. Impressed just feels like the understatement of the millenia for such a display of treasures (historical, cultural and of course, financial – everything was really “golded up”).

I can say that I appreciate the antiquities of this plane and I feel fortunate to be able to have witnessed the exhibit here in Portland.

Thank you OMSI (OMSI’s awesome.).

A few select shots from the day –

Treasured Tomb of Inner Organs for the Afterlife

I’d like my inner remains someday to be plastered in by gold walls, guarded by four ancient goddesses, and hundreds of King Cobra’s displayed to ward off nefarious types in the afterlife as well.

Real Value

11/21/2018

I believe that when future alien races unearth our ancient earthly remains after many millennia they will determine the only value derived from our culture will be our creative endeavors.

Specifically transcendent music and art.

Artistic achievements over all else will be considered what made our time “most rich”.

I’ve been listening to so much music lately, feels like getting back in touch with a first love. Not just having music on…really listening.

Add some music to your day.

Columbia Gorge Model Railroad Club – October 2018

11/17/2018

Dad and I had the opportunity to visit the Columbia River Model Railroad Club this morning. They are only open a few times a year, so if you get the chance – GO!

They’ve built out a micro-replica of the Columbia River Gorge. Awesome.
