just east of eden...

According to some
sometime in the beginning
man was expelled from paradise
tasting the forbidden fruit. And Adam
blamed it all on Eve. And Eve blamed the snake.

According to others
the genes rule our life,
decide how we act, how we live
and how we die.
Changing the genes will cure deceases,
make us live longer.
And above all be happier.
They blame it all on our messy DNA.

Then we have those that blame the constellation of stars,
The ones that blame the west, the east, the white, the black, the red, the yellow, the green ones from mars, the weather, the companies, the parents, the kids, the government, the media….

We humans seems to be very good at that,
pointing fingers.
Blaming someone else.

According to the evolution theories,
the human hand was an adaption to the extensive use of tools.
And the benefits those tools provided in the natural selection process.

I rather suspect
our hands and fingers is a natural consequence
of all that blaming-by-pointing.

The flute player

This is not a new portrait...but i went through some negatives lately. This guy is a "crazy" violin player...anyone guessed? It was really fun to work with him.

Miss Melancholy's Collard

I don't know what's to be done with people like this. Maybe send her off on a holiday, or a cruise, or a trip on a space shuttle, or a spin around a skating rink, or to the doctor, some doctor, anyone but Tarkini, anyone . . .
