Beyond my little problems - Fukushima

A Facebook friend shared this video update on Fukushima. I am god smacked by what was said about the situation.

"What sphinx of cement and aluminium bashed open their skulls and ate up their brains and imagination?

Moloch! Solitude! Filth! Ugliness! Ashcans and unobtainable dollars! Children screaming under the stairways! Boys sobbing in armies! Old men weeping in the parks!

Moloch! Moloch! Nightmare of Moloch! ..."

Allen Ginsberg, 1955


  1. Moloch indeed. Thanks for this excellent clip, Elizabeth. Unbelievable. Yet not surprising somehow.

    Reactors and regulatory attitudes towards them seem to be a hybrid of the Tower of Babel and the Titanic - a scary beast.

  2. Your welcome Harry. It's astounding that 60 km away from the site, children are attending school while their school yard is being dug up to remove radioactive soil! Moloch has surely eaten the brains of those in authority.

  3. First the Einstein theory..
    Thanks, for your visit.

  4. Hi Elizabeth, I love Allen Ginsberg. I just watched "Howl" and "William S. Burroughs, A Man Within" on Netflix. They seem more prophets than poets and the lunatics are indeed running the asylum.

    My recent shots were taken around 6:00 in the evening during a passing thunderstorm. All within an hour from home, a fairly popular camping destination for locals.

    I hope you can find your way back to your painting. We all need to run for cover and in my case, at least a few hours a day. Not to mention a weekend in the wilderness. Happy Trails!
