I like Western Classical Music and have really enjoyed listening online.Classical MPR has wonderful people introducing the music and providing insightful and gentle observations. Radio Swiss Classic has announcements in German(i think) which is so wonderful on the ear although i cannot claim to understand it.
Fluid Dynamics is beautiful, both mathematically and physically(visual beauty). Pictures of fluid motions are wondrous and invoke a sense of amazement that Nature sometimes throws at us.
Here are some beautiful pictures of Turbulence in Art and Nature.
“Music, states of happiness, mythology, faces belabored by time, certain twilights and certain places try to tell us something, or have said something we should not have missed, or are about to say something; this imminence of a revelation which does not occur is, perhaps, the aesthetic phenomenon.”
“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”(my favorite quotation)
“The earth we inhabit is an error, an incompetent parody. Mirrors and paternity are abominable because they multiply and affirm it.”
Here is a nice quote of Monet
I would like to paint the way a bird sings.
the days now are really hot (considering also that i have no air conditioning in my apartment) but today morning it rained and it felt like magic. all the heat melted away. it was cool. a nice cool breeze was blowing. the leaves had dew drops on them because of the rain. the squirrels were nibbling away and scampering wildly. the birds were out and chirping and all heralded the advent of fall.
