Gustav Klimt: Tree of Life

Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862February 6, 1918) was an Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Art Nouveau (Vienna Secession) movement. His major works include paintings, murals, sketches and other art objects, many of which are on display in the Vienna Secession gallery. Klimt’s primary subject is the female body, and his works are marked by a frank eroticism. His pencil drawings, which are very numerous, have been regarded by many as his greatest legacy.

Klimt took annual summer holidays on the shores of Attersee and painted some of the landscapes he saw there.

At Litzlberg, there is a small island château, which Gustav Klimt frequently visited during the summer.

Due to its steady winds and clean water quality, Attersee is famous for attracting sailors and swimmers alike. During the season numerous sailing competitions are held.

One of the most cherished winds on Attersee is the so-called “Rosenwind” meaning “breeze of roses”. It is an easterly wind that crosses a castle’s rose garden and fills the air across the lake with the smell of roses.

The best time to visit Attersee is during spring, summer and autumn.

Because of the lake’s size and despite the cold temperatures during winter the lake rarely freezes. The last time the lake was entirely covered with ice was in the late 1940s, when people were seen skating and riding motorcycles across the thickly frozen surface of the lake.

alien experiences

January 23, 2010

Author’s Conclusion

When considering the alien technology and devices that I have personally encountered, I note a familiar theme present here that is common in most aspects of abduction: deception, manipulation, and lack of human consent.  

Certainly, I understand there have been accounts of positive intervention, often in the form of physical healings, but to my knowledge, these events are also cloaked in secrecy, performed without consent and involve rendering the abductee into an altered state of consciousness.  

Although I appreciate the fact that the human race can be unpredictable and often volatile in nature, I do not believe that that reason alone accounts for the ETs extreme subterfuge.         

I believe that discovering the intentions of the extraterrestrial races visiting our planet is vital to the future of the human race, and that many clues to their intent can be found within the abduction scenario, and the devices and technology they employ in such encounters.  

All of these technologies and devices have a purpose that serves to promote the aliens’ ultimate goals, whatever they may be.  Exploring at length those possible uses could unlock many clues as to why they are here and what they truly seek to accomplish.  

As an abductee who would have preferred to avoid ET contact altogether, no explanations have ever been provided to me by the visitors and nothing in their behavior or technology has convinced me that their actions are for my own good, therefore, I remain cautious and skeptical.

Once the denial of their military aspects is fully realized by the abductees, they get angry, very angry.  

After all, it’s one thing to be abused at the hands of something other (something “alien”), but it’s altogether different at the
hands of humans, let alone humans we’re taught to believe are there to serve, protect, and defend mankind!  

Unfortunately, the anger over any human involvement often throws the abductee back into denial of the
experience, avoidance of its implications or causes them to retreat into denial of the ET part of the equation.  

This may be the cause for why some RE-AB abductees conclude and think “all my experiences are only the

Never mind what caused them to realize they were having ET experiences to begin with, i.e. the history
of their own discovery process that led them to that conclusion, their evidence for ETs, or the fact that the only
reason the military is interested in you is because they want to know about your ET experiences.  

And how do we know this?  

Because, in the interrogations the questions are about the ETs (why, how, agenda, genetics, psi abilities, technology, etc.),

and because they pick up the abductee after they’ve had…what was that…oh yeah…an ET experience!

It’s actually uncanny.  

For some abductees, fessing-up to their own RE-AB experiences forces them to re-examine their ET experiences:

to realize that not only were their experiences absolutely real,

but that their experiences and they, themselves, are actually a matter of national security!  

For the abductee, this is a big pill to swallow.  

The strategy of avoidance, reluctance, denial,

and an unwillingness to share their experiences with researchers comes much more easily.

Judgment Of The Moon And Stars

January 16, 2010

You’ve got to shake your fists at lightning now
You’ve got to roar like forest fire
You’ve got to spread your light like blazes
All across the sky
They’re going to aim the hoses on you
Show ’em you won’t expire
Not till you burn up every passion
Not even when you die
Come on now
You’ve got to try
If you’re feeling contempt
Well then you tell it
If you’re tired of the silent night
Jesus well then you yell it
Condemned to wires and hammers
Strike every chord that you feel
That broken trees
And elephant ivories conceal

For the Roses is a 1972 album by Joni Mitchell, between her two biggest commercial and critical successes – Blue and Court and Spark. Despite this, in 2007 it was one of 50 recordings chosen that year by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry. It’s Mitchell’s first, and so far only, album to accomplish this feat.[1]

It is perhaps best known for the hit single “You Turn Me on I’m a Radio”, which Mitchell wrote sarcastically out of a record company request for a radio-friendly song. The single was indeed a hit, reaching #25 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, becoming Mitchell’s first top 40 hit released under her own name (as a songwriter, several other performers had had hits with songs that she had written). “Cold Blue Steel and Sweet Fire” — a menacing and jazzy portrait of a heroin addict — and the Beethoven-inspired “Judgement of the Moon and Stars” were also popular. The title song “For the Roses” was Mitchell’s farewell to the business; she took an extended break for a year after.[2]

“Banquet” describes a metaphorical table from which “some get the gravy / Some get the gristle… and some get nothing / Though there’s plenty to spare”. “Barangrill”, with its more complex arrangement, is a lighter and sprightly rap which extols the uncomplicated virtues of a roadside truck stop. “Lesson in Survival” is the first of the love songs, about the longing for greater privacy, a sense of isolation, and a love for nature. “Let the Wind Carry Me” contrasts thoughts of a more stable, conventional life with the overpowering need to live with minimal constraints upon one’s freedom.

The second side opens with “See You Sometime”, which deals with fleeting feelings and romantic competition. “Electricity” extols the simplicity and serenity of the quiet country life against the way in which people in modern society think of themselves unconsciously as machines. “Woman of Heart and Mind” is a portrait of a flawed lover.

The album was critically acclaimed with The New York Times saying “Each of Mitchell’s songs on For the Roses is a gem glistening with her elegant way with language, her pointed splashes of irony and her perfect shaping of images. Never does Mitchell voice a thought or feeling commonly. She’s a songwriter and singer of genius who can’t help but make us feel we are not alone.”

A nude photograph of Joni Mitchell was included on the inside cover of the original LP and is included in the CD booklet. The photograph shows the singer from the rear and was taken from a considerable distance; she is shown standing on a rock and staring out at the ocean. This created some controversy at the time.

Sueños Andinos

Pero debo volver. Una vez más. A mi nuevo hogar.

Hasta que sea hora para mí. Vivir mi sueño andino.

Breathing” is a single by Kate Bush, the first cut from her 1980 album Never For Ever, with backing vocals by Roy Harper.

The single was issued on April 14, 1980, four months before the album was released, and reached number 16 in the UK charts. It was the first single by Bush to feature a non-LP track on its B-side, “The Empty Bullring”.

“Breathing” is about a foetus, very much aware of what is going on outside the womb and frightened by nuclear fallout, which implies that the song is set either during a nuclear war scare or a post-apocalyptic birth. The lyrics also refer to the foetus absorbing nicotine from the mother’s smoking. In an interview that year Bush described the song as her “little symphony”, adding that she considered it her best work to date.

The music video features Bush in a womb portraying a foetus.
