"Adam and Eve's Dog" ~Richard Garcia


Not many people know it but Adam and Eve had a dog.
Its name was Kelev Reeshon, which means, first dog.


Some scholars say it had green fur and ate only plants
and grasses, and that is why some dogs still like to eat grass.


Others say it was hairless like the Chihuahua. Some
say it was male, some…

               and history)

Nature and creatures—as society & social media—exhibit inherent attitudes which promote success and ensure failure. One chooses to serve, the other to profit; the one to love another unto death, the other to just get along long enough to die well-fed.

a-bittersweet-life:

No matter how much work the director, the assistant director, the cameraman or the lightning technicians put into a film, the audience never knows. What is necessary is to show them something that is complete and has no excess. When you are shooting, of course, you film only what you believe is necessary. But very often you realize only after having shot it that you didn’t need it after all. You don’t need what you don’t need. Yet human nature wants to place value on things in direct proportion to the amount of labor that went into making them. In film editing, this natural inclination is the most dangerous of all attitudes. The art of the cinema has been called an art of time, but time used to no purpose cannot be called anything but wasted time.
Akira Kurosawa

When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar,” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. “My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.”
It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions? How often had I sped past them as I learned of male achievement and men’s place in the history books? Then I read Rosalind Miles’s book “The Women’s History of the World” (recently republished as “Who Cooked the Last Supper?”) and I knew I needed to look again. History is full of fabulous females who have been systematically ignored, forgotten or simply written out of the records. They’re not all saints, they’re not all geniuses, but they do deserve remembering.
