Floating out in space like a bubble,
colors glistening like the rainbow of light that dances off watery spheres,
this wondrous delight of The Universe hangs in the night sky like a jewel,
a treasure of nightly wonder for all to see.
My breath settles like bubbles upon the surface of calm waters,
as my eyes behold this spectroscopic wonders,
wondering what it would be like to be out there amongst its dancing bubbles of light,
dancing in the eternity of blackest night.
The deeper thoughts of my psyche bubble to the surface of my mind,
as I find calmness and relaxation within myself by looking outward,
up to the heavens,
beholding the most beautiful object I have ever seen,
a gaseous wonderment of bubbles of color,
splashing its light into nights inky black sea,
the cosmic bubbler that brings me glee.

without a care in the world,
drifting along anemones,
feeling their gentle caress.
What a wonderful thing it must be for this playful bi colored wonder,
to clown around with no worries or care,
feeling the water as it surrounds,
nestling this clown of the sea in it's warmth.
It's darting movement speaks to me,
reflecting a clownish attitude,
a wonder and joy partaken of all that the sea has to offer,
and I watch is darts off for another unknown adventure,
this little clown of the sea.

Perhaps a good time to find and dust off that vinyl copy of Joni Mitchell's "Blue", voted by Rolling Stone Magazine as the 30th best record of all time. In my case it would be "Court and Spark," the first Joni Mitchell album I ever bought back in the late 70's.
She definitely has a way with words, and a way with melody that is unlike any other.

Most of the Ello tech department worked through the weekend, getting everything ready for the release of Ello V2, which begins rolling out later later this week.
When that happens you'll notice an updated interface and new features. Better search. Full screen browsing. Drag & drop images. Even CodePen support. More details on that in a few days!
But what is most exciting about Ello V2 is what it does behind the scenes.
See, when we release Ello back in August we had just 90 of our friends on our network. Now we have millions of people using Ello, incredible positivity, and thriving micro communities — from art to photography to drag to graffiti. And Ello grows each day.
All that happened much faster than we expected. It's been amazing, but we realized this past New Years that with the current rate of growth on Ello, and with mobile apps coming soon, our system could eventually get overwhelmed.
So what we decided to do was to secretly rebuild Ello's backend. From the ground up. That's what we've been busy with for the last three months. We made the choice to get that hard work done now, so we can all celebrate later.
The arrival of Ello V2 later this week means we can grow a lot as a community without service interruption.
V2 is also engineered to make it easy to release lots of new features a lot more quickly: content search, tagging, Loves, bookmarking, private groups, private messaging, and more. Once we are sure V2 is out and stable, we will release these features one after the other.
And Ello mobile apps too! In fact, I'm typing this on my iPhone, using a prototype that our amazing Ello iOS crew is moving close to launch.
Starting this Thursday April 2, Ello V2 will begin rolling to the Ello…Continue
Italian soundexplorer, photographer and ethnobotany adventurer Marco Billi aka Jarguna returns with his newest "Anátēxis" album self-released during January 2015. Recorded between 2013 and 2014 at his Sound Course Studio, the album comes with attractive jewel case design, which include except stunning photos also painted and signed tray.
"Anátēxis" journey reveals with 21-plus minutes long "Lithogenesis", which straightly dives into deeply mysterious subterranean realms, where echoed organic sounds amalgamate with ghostly rumbles and undulating dronescapes. Heavier dissonant layers slowly permeate through before metamorphosing into cascades of industrial-infused rhythm movements. These sonic elevations are soon joined by perplexing voice ventures with didgeridoo howls. Expanding, intensifying and climaxing, then around the middle part relievedly diminishing into quieter terrains, yet hauntingly flavored with assorted cavernous and primordial traceries. Wow, a very immersing exploration awaits here!!! Primal rumbles announce the next piece, "Compression", on which Jarguna is joined by Tucson based soundcarver Nathan Youngblood, who is mostly known for his "Asunder" debut CD released in 2007 on SteveRoach.com label. Although the overall mood of this composition is rather cacophonous, its soundpalette is richly organic and acoustically hallucinogenic. Don't know exactly who is responsible for what, maybe Nathan might control most of those primordial scrapings. In any case, according to the pictures of Sound Course Studio, Marco is equipped with lost of toys and Nathan's studio is the same story, I can confirm that personally as few jam sessions still deeply resonate. Dense circles of menacing clouds persistently hang above, at times stealing the center stage, but the listening…
