I celebrate myself, and sing myself, And what I assume you shall assume, For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you. I loafe and invite my soul, I lean and loafe at my ease observing a spear of summer grass. My tongue, every atom of my blood, form’d from this soil, this air, Born here of parents born here from parents the same, and their parents the same, I, now thirty-seven years old in perfect health begin, Hoping to cease not till death. Creeds and schools in abeyance, Retiring back a while sufficed at what they are, but never forgotten, I harbor for good or bad, I permit to speak at every hazard, Nature without check with original energy. The atmosphere is not a perfume, it has no taste of the distillation, it is odorless, It is for my mouth forever, I am in love with it, I will go to the bank by the wood and become undisguised and naked, I am mad for it to be in contact with me. Have you reckon’d a thousand acres much? Have you practis’d so long to learn to read? Have you felt so proud to get at the meaning of poems?

Yamada the rock in has gained a lot of respect for a small stone. Also, Chiaki’s teddy bear Fujioka at least in the first season. She talks to it quite often and viewers can only hazard a guess as to whether its reactions are real or all in Chiaki’s Ahoge. The lizard Ellis picks up in episode 3 of El Cazador de la Bruja is hardly an inanimate object, but the only thing it does in the entire series, aside from belch in Nadie’s face, is crawl away in the end. Nevertheless, it immediately became target of wildest Epileptic Trees and gained an affectionate Fan Nickname “Squenchy”.

And there is also another matter with the Sniper Cat in the ED video, too Played for horror in Neon Genesis Evangelion , with Asuka’s mother having an Asuka doll that she cradles and talks to, to the exclusion of her own daughter , because she thinks the doll is her real daughter and doesn’t recognize Asuka as being her child thanks to having half of her soul torn from her body to make the second EVA. She then asks the doll to commit suicide with her , despite Asuka begging her mother to let her die with her instead of the doll.

Later Asuka walks in to find both her mother and the doll dangling from the ceiling. Then there’s the Vulcan , a “toy robot” made from a pocky box, in Zatch Bell!

The Mirror on Court street Court street in Keene is known for the beautiful old mansions found there. While many are now cut up into apartments or offices, there are still a few privately owned homes.

However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage. Scroll down for a report on that. More new posts will be added below this one. The essay below is the conclusion of the ninth part in a series by Takuan Seiyo. See the list at the bottom of this post for links to the previous installments.

Living in a World of Stress. In our modern world of information overload, speed dating, multiple consecutive double cappuccinos, and the often-heard sense that life is “speeding up,” it’s inevitable that our bodies can feel that we’re in a constant state of never-ending stress.

As I explain below, I handed over my beloved Vamoots to Charlie in December , since I will not be able to ride it again. In retrospect, I realize that I never really owned my Vamoots, I simply had the use of it until the time came for me to proudly to pass it on to my son. Prior to it going to be with Charlie in his fifth-floor walk-up, I had about dozen years and many thousands of enjoyable miles on my Vamoots.

I would still be riding it if I had any choice in the matter, however, due to back surgery and nerve damage in my legs making riding unsafe, putting the Vamoots on the bus, literally and symbolically, ended my days as a cyclist. Ironically, the photo of the bike in the bus also could have been taken in , the day before I rode my Vamoots in a triathlon from New York City to Philadephia. Each morning, several of us would leave camp just before first light and watch the sun rise over the Neuse River while riding approximately 30 miles or so before rejoining our families at camp for breakfast.

We usually stopped at a coffee shop in the small town of Oriental, NC. I truly think that our annual arrival was a highlight of their year, and our return to Oriental was certainly one of ours. Even more memorably, however, my Vamoots made it possible for me to do some iconic rides, including climbing Mt. Ventoux and Vail Pass, and following the Tour de France for a week.

Though my cycling days sadly ended at age 58, well before I ever could imagine and before a highly anticipated post-retirement ride across the US ride with a college friend , I take comfort in two very specific ways. First, despite the premature end to my riding, I still had the fortune to have cycling experiences that elude many long-time cyclists and to got to have them on a top quality bike.

The boulder is approximately 30 metres 98ft across – about the size of a basketball court. While Rosetta continues to orbit the comet, scientists are still waiting to hear anything from the Philae lander on the surface. It touched down on 12 November and performed more than 90 per cent of its intended science but, since its main batteries ran out of power, it has gone quiet. However, as the comet approaches the sun, the backup battery on the lander – powered by solar panels – is expected to bring it back to life.

So far, though, despite the Rosetta listening intently on several occasions, no sign of the Philae lander has been found.
