“He who has a Why can bear almost any How”, Frederich Nietzsche
One’s “Why” cannot be oneself. Emotionally, biologically, and morally, it is essentially Others! -Charles Rogers
As a student of a small liberal arts college, I received a healthy dose of English literature as well as the visual and performing arts. As a physician and surgeon, I was exposed to many elements of modern life. I am fascinated by DNA, the human genome, genetic archaeology and history’s evidence of the making of the human mind.
I would like to learn something about my readers. Please write something about yourself in my comments section. At least tell from where you are reading/writing. In “comments” please tell me from where you are reading/writing. Tell me something about yourself or I will not be able to learn from you. Reading and writing are two sides of the same coin. Thank you. Charles
[The pictures and logos are a problem. Unless I can get some uniformity, I may do without logos; I can still use flags if you tell me from where you are blogging.]

Josh Taylor, Jr. www.facebook.com/JoshTaylorPhoto Outstanding photographer and photographic teacher. Josh: “A photographer’s job is to capture and manage light. This faucet in the Juniper Level Botanic Garden at Plant Delights Nursery in Raleigh, NC was a challenge to photograph. In addition to keeping sharp focus from the bottom fern to the pine needle at the top, the first challenge was to keep the light on the pine needle entwined in the fern and faucet handle. The next challenge was to control the bright light on the background plants and ground mulch. Background elements brighter than the subject can be a distraction. Instead of using a large diffuser to soften the light, a soft gold reflector was used to put most of the background in shadow. The gold side of the reflector illuminated the faucet and pine needle. However, the reflector did completely solve the background light problem, so I positioned myself to cast a show on the remaining background hot spots—quite a contortion act but it works. Also, a tripod and a cable shutter release are indispensable in situations like this” Josh and I have been friends for 25 years. Our sons are best friends. It is through Josh That I have been introduced to several remarkable photographers. These photographers have allowed me to use their art with my blogs, greatly enhancing their value.
Victoria, Author: N℮üґ☼N☮☂℮ṧ
Victoria is a secular humanist and an advocate for human and animal rights, brain injury awareness, seizure disorders, and the environment. She blogs about the brain’s role in religious type experiences, and the numerous ways the environment impacts gene expression, brain development and human behavior. Examples of feelings that seem like knowledge include so-called mystical experiences, and the conviction that taking a risk in poker will pay off. The tendency of an individual to have any one of these feelings—to be, for example, an inveterate gambler—is partly determined by genetic predisposition, and partly by prior experience.
How, then, can we tell the difference between feeling right and being right? The answer lies in accepting the limits of our ability to know and in “playing by the rules of scientific method”—believing we are right if empiric evidence and testing give us reason to do so, but accepting that subsequent evidence may one day prove us wrong.”

Robert Okaji, robertokaji.wordpress.com Austin, Texas A poet considers the intersections of language and numbers, connections between disparate entities – the currents stirring within the Phoenician iteration of our letter M and the Japanese character for water, mizu, or the intertwined strands of solar wind and shadows, black-chinned hummingbirds and coastal death rituals – all, of course, while contemplating good food and that most magnificent of elixirs, beer, which may have been the very foundation of civilization. Or not.
