I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

  • I must admit I have never been much of a science type of guy. I did the more intellectual pursuits like baseball & basketball and now cycling. 🙂 I don't know the stars or constellations to look at them (except the BD & LD) but do appreciate looking into the heavens at night. I can remember one night being in the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, laying on a rock and seeing one of the beautiful & pristine views of the sky I have ever seen before or since. Love your insights. Have a fantastic weekend.

    • I can't say I am that much into science, too. I came to appreciate it, however, because just learning all the facts about the universe we live in is a proof after proof of His existence (makes me wonder how people can still try to prove that He doesn't exist?)…

      Garden of the Gods… hmm… fun name 😀 why was it called that?

    • later addition to my comment: i went over to my friends' place (they are missionaries over here in Ukraine), Josh started showing pictures, "this is when we went hiking in Colorado…"

      i look at the picture, then back to Josh, "is it by chance somewhere close to the Garden of the Gods?"

      "Yeah! It's right there, actually!" he looked impressed that i knew what that was 😀

      so, thanks, Bill 😀 your lesson about the Garden was quite on time, i do declare 😀

  • I am not sure why it was called that. I rode my bike through it with some friends during the day and then he took us out at night. What an awesome thing. No disturbing noise, lights or sounds. I did find this on the name:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garden_of_the_Gods

    I did forget to ask: you were in Idaho? School or visiting?

    • it amazes me how sometimes the names stick… "beer garden" transformed into the "Garden of the Gods"… 😀

      i was there visiting friends of mine with whom i worked when they were over here, in Ukraine. loved it in Idaho! (and no, not because of potatoes :D) it did take me a while to get used to the altitude (i was in Idaho Falls) and lack of oxygen, but i loved every bit of my trip. we went white-water rafting (Snake river, grade 3 or 3.5), spent an entire day in Yellowstone, went to Heise Hot Springs, hmm… seen the first nuclear reactor (EBR-1), watched a sunrise from Hell's Lava Field… we did TONS of stuff.

  • In '93 the family took a trip west. All we had time to do was drive through Idaho. we did stop and eat there though. Drove by Yellowstone. I don't recommend going in July. The trip to Colorado Springs was in '79 and was a belated wedding trip (by about 26 years). Beautiful country out there. In fact, wanted to move to Colorado for many years but couldn't take my wife away from the kids. Now that I have a grandson that it totally out of the question. 🙂

    • hm… i think we went to Yellowstone in beginning of August… i've been in Idaho for two months, came on July 1st (yeah, one of the things that i got to see what the 4th of July parade!), and left on September 9th… between those dates, everything is quite blurry date-wise…

      i don't think i know anyone from Colorado, even though i got friends in almost every state… hmm… i guess i could stay at my friends at Arizona 😀

  • Love the insight! I have always enjoyed star gazing. I live out in the middle of farm country and most any clear night, I can see a multitude of stars. What an awe inspiring sight!

    Those pesky satellites can throw one for a loop occasionally.

    • ahh… my dream – to live somewhere almost in the middle of nowhere. however, the middle of nowhere in Ukraine is not as fun as middle of nowhere in the States 😀

      i love watching satellites… (when i know it's a satellite)… during my brief stay in Idaho, we had a tradition – watch a satellite pass at 11:30PM every night right above us. maybe a silly tradition, but it was fun.
