2015

I've kept this blog, on and off, since 2006. In 2015 I am also using it to chart daily encounters, images, thoughts and feelings about volcanic basalt/bluestone in Melbourne and Victoria. I plan to write a book provisionally titled Bluestone: An Emotional History, about human uses of and feelings for bluestone.
Suggestions welcome!

Great Minds of the 21st Century

Further to my last post, I can't help feeling this latest invitation — for inclusion in the Great Minds of the 21st Century — might have something to do with my name having fallen into some database, whence I will never be able to retrieve it. Do they think we are made of money? This one offers a medal, a luxury keepsake edition of the volume, and a commemorative plaque, for a grand total of US $1300.

But how's this for a lure? "Great minds are like meteors, they glitter and are consumed to enlighten the world." Gosh. I wonder if I've been consumed yet? And if not, how will I know?

You can tell you've stopped glittering when the medal needs polishing. So presumably that is when you have been consumed.

Only $1300 - bargain!
