Cease fire


Chihuly glass installation at Atlanta Botanical Garden, 2004.

Happy news today from the Middle East: truce in Lebanon! (And interesting interactive graphics, too.) Read here for some insights on what it’s been like to live through what’s been going on in northern Israel. Kudos to Leah for making these entries, and I breathe a sigh along with her that she can now move on to another topic….

    oh, my gosh!! when i first saw the chihuly glass installation, the bulbs (i’m not sure what else to call them) looked like planets! and then i assumed that they were mushrooms lounging amongst the other loverly plants. and then, THEN i scrolled down to where they meet the water and simultaneously saw the caption. =D
    oh well. the planets were pretty interesting while they lasted!

    The spheres do look planetoid; they were spectacular, especially at night!

    Asynchronous Javascript with XML 😉 I did a research paper on it last fall. Don’t know how to *do* it though.
