Plea For A Wireless World

If anything screams wireless…


There has got to be a better way.


One day people are going to laugh their heads off at they way we did technology.

Beautiful Israel Architecture

Just wanted to share some of the beautiful architecture from Israel. 


Side by side…


The old and the new.


The proud and the natural.


The strong and the spiritual. 


Obviously, I’ve only had a chance to see a very little bit.


But everywhere just seems marvelous.


So much achieved, and still such great potential. 


A people who survived the genocidal Holocaust and faced down the devil himself, with G-d’s help have rebuilt their ancient homeland.


Miracles everywhere, I can attest to it with my own eyes and soul. 😉

Foreboding GW Masonic Memorial

So I took this photo of the George Washington Masonic Memorial. 


On one hand, it is quite a large and impressive structure (9 floors and 333 feet sitting atop Shooter’s Hill).


It is fashioned after the ancient Lighthouse of Alexandria, the 7th wonder of the world, that was built after 290 BC, and which guided trade ships into the busy harbor of Alexandria, Egypt.


On the other hand, this memorial is quite spooky in its shape of narrowing ascending floors over a protruding larger base, as well as the noticeable pentagram (often used to signify paganism and the occult) that sits at the top. 


There is also the Freemason square and compass with a big G in it built and displayed in the ground in front of the building. 


The symbols and the building itself just seem more than a little eerie–whatever the rituals are that go on there. 


In a way, I can’t stop looking at the photo of this building…it’s sort of mesmerizing.  


But I feel it somehow has the draw of a dark and foreboding place. 


Like the Lighthouse of Alexandria that was destroyed by three earthquakes between the 10th and 14th centuries, I have an unsettling feeling about this as well. 


Maybe it’s just a feeling…or maybe it’s something more. 😉
