patricialaydorsey An essential resource is under threat. in two days, on december 14, the federal communications commission (fcc) under trump’s fcc chairman, ajit pai, will vote on whether or not to destroy net neutrality. if pai gets his way, the internet as we know it will no longer exist. without net neutrality, cable and phone companies could carve the internet into fast and slow lanes. an isp could slow down its competitors’ content or block political opinions it disagreed with. isps could charge extra fees to the few content companies that could afford to pay for preferential treatment — relegating everyone else to a slower tier of service. this would destroy the open internet. we need to let our voices be heard and fast! first, call congress and urge your elected officials to step in and protect the existing title ii net neutrality rules. ask her or him to personally contact the fcc chairman and tell him they oppose any repeal of title ii net neutrality rules. and then, let the fcc hear your own opinion by following these steps: 1. - go to www.gofccyourself.com 2. - on the drop-down menu at top right of the page, click on express filing. 3. - under proceedings click on link 17-108 (restoring internet freedom). be sure to hit enter after making choice. 4. - fill in your name and hit enter so it will register. 5. - fill in your contact info. 6. - under brief comments write: "i strongly support net neutrality backed by title ii oversight of isps." 7. - click on "continue to review screen" 8. - click on submit #netneutrality

patricialaydorsey Seeds we are all sent down here alone. it is as if someone had flung seeds from a higher place and we came forth, blossoming and seeking light. some of us took refuge in already established forms, ways of being. we poured easily into pre-established molds. we did not question, but accepted what was given, glad for the comfort of others of our kind. others of us were restless, wanted  answers, rummaged ancient texts, challenged teachers, sought to remember, where we came from, our assignment here. no one had an easy path. some were seduced by riches and success, custom, their own talent. others forged ahead on their own way, a difficult journey, no companions, often no landmarks, only savage sun, blinding snow. our progress varied. those who did not travel very far were often happy just where they were and had no desire to explore. they chose not to ask too many questions and took for granted what was given. others kept trying new pathways, different routes and investigations to move ahead. and when these finally seemed to arrive at a longed for destination, a different vision, the rest were often suspicious, felt indeed that they had lost their way, needed help or censure. nonetheless the adventurers stood by their choices, gave thanks to find at last the hidden jewel and knelt before what they knew was holy, the reason why they came........................................................................................................................................................................................................this poem is by my dear friend dorothy walters and can be found on her blog at http://kundalinisplendor.blogspot.com/2017/12/seeds.html

patricialaydorsey "the meaning appears in the space between the images, in the mood they raise in the beholder." ~minor white 1952~ of all the photo projects i've worked on since getting serious about photography in 2006, "the space between" remains one of my favorites. my intention was to show children and nature without artifice or sentimentality. i feel it succeeded not because of anything i did, but because of the naturalness of the children i was privileged to photograph. if you would like to see more of this project, simply click on the link to my website which appears on my ig profile page.

patricialaydorsey #repost @wu___wei (@get_repost) ・・・ there are constants in the cosmos that are sublime to contemplate and seem to suggest a finely tuned universe. we have, of course, 'pi', that loveable irrational number that has a multitude of applications, and there is the speed of light in a vacuum, designated by einstein as 'c'. there is 'the golden mean,' plank's constant, newton's gravitational constant and so on and so forth. they are everywhere. they are indispensable. and they are elegant in their functions. perhaps there is no constant more exquisitely beautiful and vital in its function than patricia lay-dorsey @patricialaydorsey. i am convinced she is the universal symbol representing the boundlessness of the heart. we can all benefit by incorporating her as a coefficient in the function of our lives. from patricia: after having had a very rough week, these kind words soothe my soul. i bow my head in gratitude 🙏🏼
