"I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist. I am willing to fight for peace... It is not better for a man to die for a cause in which he believes, such as peace, than to  suffer for a cause in which he does not believe, such as war?"

Albert Einstein
1931 California Institute of Technology
Speaking on the danger of blind adherence to ideology, even the idealistic ideology of pacifism.

I clipped this quote out of a magazine years ago. I helps me understand a duality I have always had, but never understood.

Go Albert!

Copper Sketch

Since my fingers need a break between wire projects I decided to play around on paper designing the next copper creation. I waste less wire this way, same way with glass. Huh maybe those type A's have a point after all. However I'm never a slave to the sketch so my finished project will probably be close.

Seriously this is the latest romp in copper. My fingers hurt and my nails are damaged from this my Labor of love.
