Some grains of corn

Monsieur Rousseau whose 300th birthday is being celebrated today – well, more less than more – like many others gave evidence that he who writes a lot not seldom does write a lot of rubbish, such as

——• Man is born free and everywhere he is in chains.

However, being no blind hen one could find some grains of corn, so to write. 

Judge yourself.

• People who know little are usually great talkers, while men who know much say little.

• No man has any natural authority over his fellow men.

• Ordinary readers, forgive my paradoxes: one must make them when one reflects; and whatever you may say, I prefer being a man with paradoxes than a man with prejudices.

• However great a man's natural talent may be, the act of writing cannot be learned all at once. 

The peace of the night.

La Llorona



Incompetent people will:
  1. tend to overestimate their own level of skill;
  2. fail to recognize genuine skill in others;
  3. fail to recognize the extremity of their inadequacy;
Well, as mostly: there is said to be hope.

I do doubt this.

The peace of the night.

Just a thought

0,0535446 Euro per keystroke is quite reasonable a fee.

On second thought ...

Why would so many people become sateless?

Watching this very sentinel ...
made me feel good, safe and ... thankful.

Venus Transit

A photo of a
Venus transit,

... neither taken by NASA,
nor taken today,
but in June 2004.

Today, thanks to the forecast, none of us would have got up for the 'event'.
We shall wait for better weather in 2117.

Herewith the end of Omnium

is declared postsponed ...

Five years ought to be more than enough, however as I did neither take the time trying to find proper words to explain the Why, and  – more important – to thank all those I do not wish to wish farewell ... I decided to postpone the end ...

... until ... next year.

This might turn out to have been no wise decision. Who knows? I might not find time to say bye-bye before moving to my last dwelling six feet under.

I do know, though, that it is a good feeling to have met a few people.
Thank you!

Laughing gas needed?

Nah!  See?

What Omnium needs

oxygen – air supplying device – laughing gas.


Friday is Skyday
