and one of my favorites...

It is now no longer a question of accumulating scientific truths and discoveries. We need above everything to spread the truths already mastered by science, to make them part of our daily life, to render them common property. We have to order things so that all, so that the mass of mankind, may be capable of understanding and applying them; we have to make science no longer a luxury but the foundation of every man's life. This is what justice demands. kropoktin

wonderful job opportunity

Dear Friends of BMC,

Our annual application deadline for our 2004 Residency Program is just a few weeks away, and we are looking to our alumni to help spread the word and encourage talented and committed writers, composers and artists to apply. Please give a nudge to people you think should come to BMC, especially folks you know who have never had a Residency. The application guidelines are available on our web page (, and people can always email us for more information ( All applications to BMC must be postmarked by February 1. Thank you for your help!

Also, Blue Mountain Center has two positions to fill this winter We are asking for your help because you are the ones who know Blue Mountain Center best and have a sense of what type of people we need.

We are looking for a new PROGRAM COORDINATOR in our effort to help replace Elise Kyllo who has decided to return to her home in Minneapolis full-time. The job requires someone who is mature, organized, humorful, and a self-starter. The work is varied, demanding and highly rewarding. The Coordinator is in residence for the Center

file sharing

Well, today we got the employee memo,

"delete all file sharing software and files associated with it now,
or we will assist you in doing so"

I was waiting for that, - funny though, I only got around to installing Kazza last week because I yearned to hear an old Joni Mitchell song.

It also coincides with my moving to a home office...

It occurs to me, what is the policy over at the new museum?
