Fly Fishing The Universe

Part of a month-long series on terrible trips, great journeys and getting lost.

* And why are all these ball-dots wading through the Higgs field in an amazing array of metaphors across all news outlets ever since the Higgs boson was discovered last week? "Cosmic molasses" and "fans of Justin Bieber" are among my favorites.

Previously in series: Portraits From A Cross-Country Road Trip

Amy Jean Porter is an artist made of stardust. Voyager 1 progress is here. Powers of Ten, here. Gone fishing, here.

Oh Amy Jean Porter, I love you.

And someday soon we will lose contact with Voyager and it will continue travelling the universe on a quest for knowledge only to return sometime in the late 23rd century as V'Ger, destroyer of worlds. (okay I made that last part up but the rest is true; I saw it on TV)

Jeez I love Amy Jean Porter's visual style. That Jupiter illustration must have taken at least 17 hours.

Loved this. I'll never see commas the same way again.

Oh man that trout coming in there like that brought on a rush back to the last page of "The Road." In the very best way. (Is it a trout? I think so. And even if it is not, I like to think so.) God, I love this whole thing so much!

The outtake bears such an uncanny resemblance to an image I made some years ago. Awesome.

Your pragmatic lyricism and ability to see things anew puts me in mind of Annie Dillard's _Pilgrim At Tinker Creek_. This is just beautiful stuff.

This post has helped me for an article which I am writing. Thank you for giving me another point of view on this topic. Now I can easily complete my article. Cheers
