Moon!jpg1) Touch A Tear by Kay Salady 

Touch a tear that trickles with a lonely fingertip Taste the salt upon your tongue with parted honey lip Walk a dusty trail my love as thought returns to me If you should tire a spring awaits beneath the banyan tree You’ll hear the music of my voice whisper in its leaves As sacred prayers we two had shared float upon the breeze The rhythm of the drums that beat within our dance of love Reverberates within your head and all you’re thinking of Is holding me within your arms so tight no room for air No space could get between us two as we are standing there As rains fall down to beat the ground and make the lily bright Heaven heard your solemn vow and brought your wish tonight Kay Salady @ Winslow, Arizona USA Kay Salady is a writer based …

 

 

DSC019192) Tibet protest at “Tibet Square” in Woluwe-Saint-Pierre (Brussels) on the Chinese New Year. by Dennis Barbion

The Regional Tibetan Youth Congress Belgium (RTYC Belgium) had planned a peaceful Tibet demonstration in front of the Chinese embassy in Brussels on Saturday 21st January 2012, for the ongoing atrocities in Tibet, the recent self immolations and the brutal crack down by the Chinese, and shooting of innocent kids, women and monks. The reason to demonstrate that day was of course the upcoming Chinese New Year and its celebrations. Although the police gave a positive recommendation to the Mayor of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre who is also the head of the police, the permission to demonstrate was denied, as there was a celebration of the Chinese New Year with diplomats in the Chinese embassy that day. The area around the Chinese embassy in Brussels was totally closed and a lot of policemen kept an …

fracs15) The Beauty of Roughness by Shahrokh Sharifrazi

 When one studies basic Geometry in Mathematics, most are familiar with Linear and Quadratic Equations, Squares, Rectangles and Circles; they can all be represented in 2-dimensions using an X-Y graph. X-Y graph More complex objects such as a cylinder and a prism can be plotted using 3-dimensions involving X-Y-Z graph. However, natural objects that we observe all around us cannot be represented using the classical ‘Euclidian’ Geometry; they are known as ‘Non-Euclidean’. It is because of the uneven and roughness of their shapes, that make them impossible to be plotted on a graph. They are therefore represented in the ‘Complex’ plane. Some examples of these phenomena include: Clouds, Mountains, Ferns, Trees, the coastline of Great Britain and a snowflake curve-under a microscope. They are called ‘Fractals’, as they have a ‘rough’ or ‘fragmented’ geometric shape. The most famous …
