11 Jan 2017 “Dataeology” (the “dig site” that is the modern internet), afternoon drawing about Sky Ships, Cloudships (Opal Whiteley and Anne Hill)

Hello to you, hope this finds you well.  I did a major cleanup in my media library today and deleted a lot of blogs today.  Hard to believe I had found 500 blogs worth of stuff to say within the past couple of years LOL.  I doubt anyone will miss them.  Really if something on the internet is more than a couple of hours, heck even minutes old, good luck finding it!  So much of what is published is written over by newer things to the point you can’t find things you are looking for without really digging for it.  I’ve noticed the internet has become like layers of the earth…..finding things for research is like archeology!  I’ve come up with a word for it:  “dataeology” the science of excavating the internet, much like you would at an archeological dig site,  in order find information about something more than a couple of hours old.  (ROFL)!! 

Opal called the clouds Cloudships and I have been thinking of them as sky ships.  I had a sort of revelation today, kind of sad in a way, that the reason I love to watch the sky, specifically the clouds, is because it makes me feel free, they make me feel like I’m going somewhere even if I’m just standing in my backyard. 

Cloudships

The lyrics of this song were written by 6-year-old Opal Whiteley, taken from her nature diary in the early 1900s. It was rediscovered by Benjamin Hoff and included in his biography of Opal “The Singing Creek Where the Willows Grow”. The musical setting is by Michael Smith for Anne Hills’ project “Beauty Attends: The Heartsongs of Opal Whiteley” available at www.annehills.com
