an owl, an ocean,a flower, an apologist, and a butterfly
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 05:55 AM by GoPsUx

an owl

an ocean (taken by our very own california peggy)

a flower

Richard Clarke (Clarke apologizing to the familys of those lost on 911)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_A._Clarke
"To them who are here in the room, to those who are watching on television, your government failed you, those entrusted with protecting you failed you and I failed you. We tried hard, but that doesn't matter because we failed.
And for that failure, I would ask -- once all the facts are out -- for your understanding and for your forgiveness."


:)
and a butterfly for the awesome buddhamama


Good morning everyone :)

16. I love owls, too.
I once had a dream that I was an owl. I floated from a tree branch to the ground effortlessly and silently. I was quite content being an owl.

2. Apology or apologizer, not apologist.
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 07:26 AM by Orsino
Clarke is the opposite of an apologist--thank goodness.

I really enjoyed the eclectic photo gallery.

Good morning btw :)
That scene / dialog regarding Clarke brought me to tears when i first saw it.
The familys finally got someone to just say "I'm Sorry"..

6. good morning, Bud!
i love owls almost as much as I love butterflies. :) my love is in part due to my Native American heritage. Owls are revered. It is the belief of some cultures that if an Owl crosses your path from the left, you'll have good luck, among other significant meaning/s. I have had this happen to me a few times during the course of my life... I don't know about luck, but i surely been blessed. :)

the butterfly pic is gorgeous. the butterfly itself is, too.

a wonderful thread, my friend. thank you, for everything. :hug: :loveya: :hi:

21. I barely slept a wink
However, I just went to Pilates class so feel surprisingly good. I'll probably crash later though.

I hope you have an awesome day as well! :hi:

And I don't use the word "awesome" often. I'd love to know what kind of butterfly that is in the last picture. Just gorgeous.

Trogonoptera brookiana
"Bird-Winged Butterfly"
edited for more info
Trogonoptera brookiana was first found in Northern Borneo, near Sarawak. It was named after the 'White Raja of Sarawak', Captain Brooke, who ruled the province for the Englishmen in the middle of the 19th century.

It is a beautiful species, one of only two representatives of the genus Trogonoptera.

T. brookiana's known distribution has been restricted to Malaya, Borneo and Sumatra. In the last few years several new subspecies have been described from the offshore islands of Sumatra
