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!

  3. Thanks so much for following First Night History. I’ve been following you as First Night Design for some time but WP had cleverly managed to stop the email notifications (it’s happened before!). So I unfollowed and followed again as that seems to be the only reliable solution. I’m so glad to have you back on my radar, so to speak!

  10. Dear Kitty (I hope this comment will go through, I’ve tried many times)
    I just discovered your blog and want to say how much I like it.
    I also discovered that you quoted extensively from my interview in the Guardian in 2013 and would like to ask you if there is a more private way to contact you? Here is the link to your blog that quoted me: https://dearkitty1.wordpress.com/2013/06/27/bank-worker-interviewed-on-bullying-bank-bosses/
    thank you!

    • Hi Nyla, sometimes at WordPress comments by first time commenters land in the spam box. That may have happened to yours.

      Thanks for your kind words about my blog!

  11. Hi
    I came across your blog about the film Pride, from 16th November. I was a member of London LGSM & agree with your comments. I was wondering where you got the picture of Mark with the Pinko Commie Queers banner, because I made the banner, along with my then partner, & would love to have a high res copy of the photo.

  21. Been following you for over three years now and just want to say how much I appreciate the quality of your blog, I feel you give us all a real service in disseminating this valuable information. i often say to friends, i don’t need to read a newspaper, I just read this inspiring, erudite and informative blog which covers everything of interest and everything that matters. Congratulations on your amazing range of thought and interest, and for sharing it with us. many many thanks to you..

    • Dear Valerie,

      Thank you so much for this really special comment! I am privileged to have you among the readers of my blog.

      I don’t really ‘cover everything of interest’. On many days, I wish I could blog about this, or that, and I don’t have time :) Being only one person, not scores of persons like at a small local newspaper, or thousands, like at Associated Press, or at the Murdoch empire.

      Thanks again, and all the best for you and your blog!

  22. Hi, I am currently assisting with a website for a group organizing to disband the Delta Police in Greece. I came across your photo of these fascists attacking students and would like to possibly use it on the site somewhere, but, before even considering that, I wish to know if that’s okay with you. Thanks!

  24. I am probably missing something right under my nose, but I can’t find where to click to follow your blog. Anyway, I just updated a tweet hoping to get people to read your great post on recent neo-facist mobilization in Germany.
