I post here, my collection of moments that meet me before the day starts.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3lWwBslWqg&feature=youtu.be

 

( Yes many of these posts are interpersonal or Indi-blog related), but they are ones that inspire, provoke, and you wish to capture them for a lifetime, so.

Thank you for being here too, in the unique ways of cyberspace, which still intrigues me. Am honoured each time you comment or stop by to ‘like’ 🙂 This ” Desert Rose” and the note beneath shouted for attention…see .. ‘  beautiful examples of the natural power of the shaping forces of wind, water and pressure in dry, arid regions.Desert roses are only found in deserts, which is how they got the name. ..”

How does the natural power of the shaping forces of wind, water, pressure in dry, arid regions affect me… each other ?

Is it effective esp when left too long in ‘ arid/ dry’ areas…. ?  what an earth phenomenon, for issues that go outside human resource, or control. Just thinking and thought to share,

when I  bump into  Earthquake Rose.. 

…….

On February 28, 2001, a magnitude 6.8 earthquake, located some thirty miles (48 km) below the surface of the Earth moved the ground for a bit more than half a minute. Damage was surprisingly light on account of the epicenter’s depth. A sand tracing pendulum located at a shop in Port Townsend, Washington, called Mind Over Matter (since moved to Sedona, Arizona), produced some very interesting patterns.The smooth curves you see on the outside are what you normally see when someone sets the pendulum in motion. The seismic activity is responsible for the rose-shaped pattern you see in the middle. A beautiful design by one of nature’s most powerful forces.

Desert RosePlanet Earth Phenomenon
is the name given to rosette formations of the minerals gypsum and barite with sand
inclusions. The ‘petals’ are crystals flattened , fanning open along characteristic gypsum cleavage
planes. The rosette crystal habit tends to occur when the crystals form in arid sandy conditions, such as
such as the evaporation of a shallow salt basin.Desert roses are mineral formations that are found on the surface and are beautiful examples of the natural power of the shaping forces of wind, water and pressure in dry, arid regions.Desert roses are only found in deserts, which is how they got the name.
