Howya doin?

Hey there -- howya doin? Me? Oh fine, thanks for asking ... I'm just hangin around. Why? Just to get your attention -- to see if you are paying attention. Hey, go ahead and click on the picture so I can get a better look at you.

Now, can I offer you just one thought for your day? Here ya go ... Take care now, ya hear?
If you could get rid of yourself just once, the secret of secrets
would open to you. The face of the unknown, hidden beyond
the universe would appear on the mirror of your perception.

-- Rumi

cool grasshopper. Just like the one that was hanging around my apartment while I was packing. Is there a facial expression there or what? Eerie! Nicely done! There is no doubt that the grasshopper is curious. Now how amazing is that?

Grasshopper, I agree with you -- look at that expression. There is clearly consciousness there. It seems more curiosity (as you note) than fear. Which is amazing given this big camera lens staring him in the face (only about 1 inch away).

Turns out this is not a grasshopper -- but I'm not sure what kind of creature it is. But it was cute.
