Daughters of the Nile

One of the stories I work on periodically is entitled Isis’ Daughters, and I’ve used Second Life to shoot illustrations for it. Morgan was willing to help me reshoot the cover photo, as it needed revising (as well as updating to newer goodies such as materials). And, luckily for me, the same place I shot the original photo was still available! This is a much better piece than the original, I’d say ….

You can download a wallpaper-sized HQ version at my Flickr stream.

Speak Again the Name

It is said that, when a person’s name is spoken or thought, then that person shall have life eternal, no matter when they may have lived, no matter when they may have died.

Who do we speak of? Turn the page to see in brief….

Under the Sands of Nile Valley

I recently took a photo in Terra Egypta region; and then a local archaeologist clued me in on something that I need to share with you.

Ozymandia 6

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desart. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
“My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

  • Percy Bysshe Shelley, “Ozymandias”

The Times are Changing

I can’t let this moment go by without writing something, even if I have to write it on an iPhone. Egypt is going through incredible change at this moment and we must applaud their people for doing it with a minimum of bloodshed.

Now comes the rebuilding, and the time to really worry. So much can blow up at this point, in terms of getting an Islamist government eventually, of having a group in power that will become unfriendly toward the west and Israel. On the other hand, some analysts are speculating that dictators in the region may need to worry; that there could even be a reignition of the Green democracy movement in Iran. A Saudi diplomat just told CNN that they may get worried there about a “social network” revolution there as well.

Someone tell me what’s happening in the Egypt sim! I can’t get in world, blast it!
