Experiment Failed

It seems my trial of the Sway app on my photography page is not going to be a success.

Apart from reported viewing difficulties, I have found that I cannot modify it or add new images without uploading a whole new set and creating an entirely new page each time.

Given that Panoramio is closing, I shall look into other ways to display the photos I consider to be my best, or that are most meaningful to me.

Experiment 2

Experiment 1, My Photo Gallery, was a failure, so I moved it to a new page here or you can click the “photographs” link at top right.  I wanted to have a page that catalogued all my favourite photographs and I constructed it using the Sway App from Microsoft.  But the app seemed to play havoc with my layout and kept picking up bits of previous posts.  I am hoping it will work better as a stand-alone page.

I would appreciate comments as to how it appears to users who may be viewing it on platforms I am not acquainted with.  I am no expert when it comes blog page design and layout.  I just picked a simple theme and followed the instructions.

Cavern on the Moon

Scientists Detect Massive Caverns on Moon That Could House Colony

This is actually a very positive find, because if there is to be a colony on the moon, safety and air conservation will be far better controlled in an underground cavern rather than domes.

I posted this on my Facebook page and on a science page I subscribe to.
So far no one has commented on the odd looking artifact in the bottom right of the hole in the moon.
It looks oddly familiar.

Lore

It is Lore time.  Or Law time as some will have it.  The time when aboriginal boys become men.  The time for initiation rites.  I was away last year at this time, on leave, then trapped in Halls Creek by the weather.  This year I plan to be trapped here.

There are a lot of new faces in the community, all male.  The women and girls are making themselves scarce.  They are packing up and heading to visit relatives in Halls Creek, or in Warmun or Kununurra, centres where no Lore is practised.  Those remaining stay mostly at home.  There do not seem to be many children about either.

We gardia keep to ourselves and don’t stray near the men’s areas.

Lonely Places

“Seek lonely places and be still, listening, hearing the songs and cries of the winged ones, the sounds of the four-leggeds, and the cries of the insect people; feeling the breath and touch of the earth, of leaves, of bark; for all have messages for you… “

Sees-Beyond-The-Lightning, of the Sioux.

 

This year I am going to find out what a night out camping in a lonely place can do for the young ones.
