About


This video is called What Gives the Morpho Butterfly Its Magnificent Blue?

Blogging on animals, peace and war, science, social justice, women’s issues, arts, and much more.

When I started blogging at ModBlog in January 2005, I wrote (and I will repeat it here, to prevent it from going down with, now in 2011, Blogsome):

Dear Kitty,

Welcome, to read the diary as I write.

Like Anne Frank 63 years ago, I am starting something while unable to predict how the world around me will evolve.

I hope this will be a many-sided diary. I hope I will be able to write much on new discoveries on ancient cultures; new poems; new paintings; new scientific discoveries in medicine, the lives of birds, and much more.

However, political and economic power being in the hands where they are now, I fear that I will have to write much on “four more years” of war in Iraq and elsewhere; rich getting richer and poor getting poorer; torture in Guantanamo Bay and elsewhere; environmental destruction by corporations and governments.

Still, I hope that I will also be able to report on people fighting against these phenomena; for a better, more peaceful and just world.

In chaos theory, there is the “butterfly effect“: a butterfly in the Amazon rain forest, flapping its wings, usually does not cause a storm far away, felling mighty trees.

However, in some unusual circumstances, it does.

May there be favourable circumstances for bloggers and others speaking truth to power! “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee”, as Muhammad Ali used to say.

So, dear Kitty, see you again!
