Adobe Flash CS3 is a blessing for people like me who likes simple animation but are limited in talent to actually produce one in a “normal” sense. Now besides being able to put across my ideas in words I am capable of putting it into an “animated movie” also which deemed me to be an animator no less.                *** ahemm.


The title Joy of Hiking is an idea culminated from my many years of gruelling hiking in this part of the world – Arizona Desert Terrain – as a mean of remembrance when I am retired completely from the world of hiking which is unlikely because hiking is the only interesting mean of entertainment here in this part of the world.


I am not an expert though but having gone through the many experiences – like hiking in a desert temperature of more than 115 deg. Fah. I am qualify to depict what it was like when exposing to such extreme weather.


Below is the clip of the animation – done on Flash CS3. Enjoy.

 Green House Effect – then and now : 

Looks like green house effect is just a dubious simple pun after all that might not be the cause of destruction of the deep blue world of ours. The dual threats of being “broiled and suffocated” to death at the same time seems to me like hell on earth then – many years ago when I was naïve and clueless – alas will never happen.

As recently, few years back, the phenomenal appearances of mysterious and weird creatures stirred in me that it was the domino effects of green house that must have some what caused the reemergence of these creatures from their zzzzzzzz – I mean frozen in time, alive – like the “cryonics.” Except that cryonics is the freezing of the deads. Quite a hip in America. 😉

Now imagine this :

The warming of the earth, with few degrees difference, might have somewhat thawed many of these creatures from their frozen slumber, caught unaware then of the “deadly” blizzard many millenias ago while happily doing all kinds of “chores.” These weird creatures have yet to have shown their aggressive sides and all they ever done todate are just making their appearances felt as if to tell us humans  – hey we are baaacck!!!

And this is only the beginning stage of the green house effect. What if the effect deepens with many more degrees of warmth which then would actually cause both the poles – Artic and Antartic – to melt completely? Do we get to see a whole lot weirder creatures then? Not just some small ones but gigantic ones too.

This idea is giving me some nice goose bumps. So we are not alone with the “usual” kind of creatures but in fact we have all kinds of creatures around us, that we have yet to seen before, that have had existed from the earliest of time, that might be coming back to live among us. How wonderful!! Can you imagine having these weird creatures as pet? 🙂

But it is not these weird and strange creatures that is gonna be the cause of doomsday. It is not like humans will be served on their menus. No.

Doomsday Prediction : According to some “experts” the “next” doomsday prediction will happen in 2012.

“In the mythology of the Aztecs, the first age of mankind ended with the animals devouring humans. The second age was finished by wind, the third by fire, and the fourth by water. The present fifth epoch is called Nahui-Olin (Sun of Earthquake), which began in 3113 BC and will end on December 24, 2011. It will be the last destruction of human existence on Earth. The date coincides closely with that determined by the brothers McKenna in The Invisible Landscape as “the end of history” indicated by their computer analysis of the ancient Chinese oracle-calendar, the I Ching.

I have lost count of the many doomsday predictions before but one thing for sure – humans are the weirdest creatures of all. It must be the green house effect after all mutating the genes of their very thoughts.


Perhaps it is only natural in humans’ fascination with  eschatology throughout their frail but exciting existence.

Consider this :.
2500 years ago Sakyamuni Buddha gave up his luxurious and powerful princely position inorder to pursue the ultimate truth. He had remained impoverish and steadfast to this ideal – a sacrifice that had enabled him to achieve great pure enlightenment.
It was this one of many great Buddhism principles – non attachment – the foundation, the gauge of a true practicing monk.
Now fast forward to 2008 – the never ending Tibet/Dalai Lama issue.
It has been more than 50 years and still counting since Dalai Lama self imposed exile from Tibet. It has been a long time and HH Dalai Lama should realize and embrace the fact Tibet is part of China.
China is developing fast and every province seems to benefit as much including Tibet and eventually people tend to be happy and forget about the past when their primary needs are fulfilled and satisfied. Nothing much anyone can do about it then.
Politic and religion are a difficult and hard mix and maybe it is time for HH Dalai Lama to decide what path is he going to take?
Religion or politic?
Either way a free Tibet lies squarely only on the shoulder of HH Dalai Lama.
