“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again- to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.”
“The person susceptible to “wanderlust” is not so much addicted to movement as committed to transformation.”
“In barely one generation we’ve moved from exulting in the time-saving devices that have so expanded our lives to trying to get away from them—often in order to make more time. The more ways we have to connect, the more many of us seem desperate to unplug. Like teenagers, we appear to have gone from knowing nothing about the world to knowing too much all but overnight. The urgency of slowing down—to find the time and space to think—is nothing new, of course, and wiser souls have always reminded us that the more attention we pay to the moment, the less time and energy we have to place it in some larger context.” Pico Iyer
“After the experiments of G.E.’s Research Laboratory, there was a feeling that humanity might finally be able to control one of the greatest variables of life on earth. And, as Cold War tensions heightened, weather control was seen by the United States as a potential weapon that could be even more devastating than nuclear warfare.
In August of 1953 the United States formed the President’s Advisory Committee on Weather Control. Its stated purpose was to determine the effectiveness of weather modification procedures and the extent to which the government should engage in such activities.

Doesn’t this stuff just conjure up all manner of conspiratorial possibilities? I mean there it is, the explanation for all that has been happening. Can you imagine when the ‘Chem Trail‘ conspiracists read this stuff what runs through their government infected minds?
|“Spaceweather.com has an alert service you can subscribe to. I got it about a month ago. It sends you a message when there is magnetic storm event being triggered by a solar storm so you can be on the lookout for northern lights. Pretty cool. These are spectacular events to witness. I’ve seen several good ones and it can be so “other worldy” that you almost have to pinch yourself to make sure it’s not some kind of dream! Hollywood can’t touch this stuff!
We are heading into a solar peak and the next couple years are expected to be very active (hopefully not to active) as we are coming out an inordinately long solar minimum. Keep an eye out, if you catch a good one you will never forget it.” Wayne Mumford @ Will Fish For Work
Over the years, it seems each Winter I hear of the Santa Ana winds blowing in California. I have simply known it to be an East to West wind confined to Southern California. But, this morning I noticed the winds are, in some places, in excess of 70 mph beyond California…like Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and Wyoming. An unfortunate, associated factor are wild fires and the devastation they cause. The attached links provide good information about the forces behind the Santa Ana winds (winds in general) and wildfires.
