For over one week, we have had summer like weather in the city. It has been dreamy. Today it feels like it might begin to storm and winter will return. It is the perfect day to print my portfolio for AIPAD; a photo fair in New York beginning the end of this month.

While I am waiting for work to come out of the printer, I watched this absolutely gorgeous music video by Bon Iver.

Wondering what Holocene means, I grabbed this from Wikipedia….

“The Holocene is a geological epoch which began at the end of the Pleistocene [1] (around 12,000 14C years ago) and continues to the present. The Holocene is part of the Quaternary period. Its name comes from the Greek words ὅλος (holos, whole or entire) and καινός (kainos, new), meaning “entirely recent”. It has been identified with the current warm period, known as MIS 1 and based on that past evidence, can be considered an interglacial in the current ice age.

The Holocene also encompasses within it the growth and impacts of the human species world-wide, including all its written history and overall significant transition toward urban living in the present. Given these, a new term Anthropocene, is specifically proposed and used informally for the latest part of this epoch since approximately synchronous lithospheric evidence, or more recently atmospheric evidence, of human impacts have been found on the Earth and its ecosystems; these impacts may be considered of global significance for future evolution of living species.”
