3D Genetic Algorithms - Abstract Nº72

Glowing objects! Symmetry is good, assymetry is good, everything is good if it glows in the dark.
Happy new year!
This is a fraction of a poem I MUST learn by memory, love it so much! It is supposed to be more proper for Christmas but I prefer it for a new year.

Glow in the dark, people! Empower your purple! Have a great year.

CV

Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light:
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

Ring out the old, ring in the new
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.

Ring out the grief that saps the mind,
For those that here we see no more;
Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.

XCVIII

Ring out a slowly dying cause,
And ancient forms of party strife;
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.

Ring out the want, the care, the sin,
The faithless coldness of the times;
Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes,
But ring the fuller minstrel in.

Ring out false pride in place and blood,
The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.

Ring out old shapes of foul disease;
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold:
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.

Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be.

Happy 2009, my favorite frog.

This reminds me of a celtic knot. A beautiful purple celtic knot.

Hey Trée, Vikram, Deb, and... Amber! So glad to get some words from you! Thanks for stopping by, friend!
The sentiment is mutual, guys and girls. :-)

Deb, I didn't saw it as a celtic knot until you mentioned. That alternative vision is the best about posting in my blog.

My new year's resolution is to embrace my inner purple.

This is really lovely, Cristian-- like a twisted sábana after a dangerous but lovely dream!

I don't inspect sábanas after pesadillas, not even after sueños, but if you say they create an art-like expression, I'll believe. Lately I dislike unbelievers a bit, specially their implied pessimism.

Happy New Year Cris.
What a wonderfull way to welcome it, by stepping thru a glowing purple stargate to another dimension.
Umm, do i need a key to go thru the door?

runnerfrog said...

"You need the blue key".

Annielk said...

Oooo! I like this one... MORE PURPLE!!! This one is so cool 'cause it's like twisty and shiny... I just can't explain it but it's so awesome!

runnerfrog said...

You pour the shiny and I do the twisty, and we share the drink.

A "Twistini."

runnerfrog said...

Good old Mother Cabrini,
Hand us out your Twistini.

Now that's a prayer I'll remember! Hysterical!
