Verge of a Dream: Teardrops

I don’t need
To fall down
Or try and win
Then fail again.
Thinking of
You not thinking
of me is
all it takes
to release the
teardrops in me.

I don’t need
to wake up
scared in the
middle of the
Or give up like
I might do
from the toll
of years that
anyone can see
and I feel.
Thinking of
how forever
ends apart
is all it takes
to release the
from my heart.

If I’ve hoped
for something
and it was
good and lost.
Or happiness comes
at so much
cost. It won’t
make me feel
let down. Because
having your
last kiss is
all there is
and in
their release
no more
the time
will be when
sweet teardrops
to fall.

I thought this was really good — pertaining to our individual worldviews (including those who view their own ideas as just and dictatoral -aka wars and opressions) and wanted to save it to read again and again.

Quote “Yesterday we introduced the thought that each of us as humans has our own little kingdom. To further that discussion, today, I want to talk about how every one of these kingdoms operates under a philosophy, which is known as a worldview. A worldview is a lens through which you view circumstances and situations; it’s sort of a mishmash of your religion, culture, background, family life, and education. Your worldview provides a framework in which you see and process tragedy, and victory and you perceive meaning and purpose in life. A worldview attempts to answer these four questions: Who am I? Where am I? What’s the problem? What’s the solution?

In Jesus’ day, there were two primary groups that attempted to answer those questions: the Jews and the Romans. The Romans taught that you were 100% what you did and what you achieved. On the other hand, the Pharisees taught that you were dirty and that the only way to achieve holiness was to separate from unclean people. Neither of these worldviews offered any hope for those with disabilities, the poor, or sinners.

So Jesus came into a world with neither helpful nor hopeful worldviews. This is why it was such a big deal when He got up on a mountain and began to speak to a bunch of outcasts — sick people, outsiders, and Samaritans — telling them that they were blessed because they were meek, poor in spirit, and sad. You see, friend, the Kingdom of God is for everyone and it alone offers hope to ALL of humanity! Isn’t that the best news?”  animation made from google earth pro and GIMP…  how fun

Perfluorophenanthrene: microscopic droplets in hepatocyte lysoso-peroxisomes

This is a negative I retrieved from storage (40 years past) which has a clear picture of the repartition of perfluorochemical emulsions (just some, dependent on the properties of each perfluorocarbon) within the lysososomes/perosisosomes of liver hepatocytes and interstitial cells.  This image is one I pseudocolored showing how within a membrane bound organelle, proteins coat small globules of perfluorophenanthrene (PFP – chemical image from ChemSpider, lined to name).


Image below neg 8946, plastic block 28373, mouse # 26, liver, 21 days after infusion with perfluorophenanthrene (i can look up the dose in mg/kg).  This type of intra-organellar, reemulsification of perfluorocarbon based blood substitute is very dependent on which perfluorochemical is infused). Please note that I have drawn around each lysosome/peroxisosome with sharpie (LOL) to define them.

Two mitochondria are present, many polysomes, and rough ER as well.  THe pink areas within mitochondria are “not identified as routine cristi, but something has changed there”.

Also note that during processing it is most likely that the actual PFP is no longer there and thus a “ghost” vacuole is present but clearly demarcated by the presence of the proteins fixed within.
