As in "has one" as opposed to "have to", which in turn calls to mind, "Have Two", and that's less "lonely" sounding than "has one" so that's nice, perhaps I actually do "Have to" Blog!

Then I suppose it is both what I need to do as well as what I ought to do!  Balance from the beginning, That's nice!


The reason I am blogging is to simply be writing in an atmosphere of accountability, where I must in my mind write with awareness, that I am writing where others can hear!  everywhere you can read, and sometimes you can listen, but to "hear" is the nirvana of communication.  and this clarity in consciousness is a Virtue that I would like to uphold in my writing, in a way, much the same as when playing guitar, where there are listeners, not to discomfort them with playing anything which is less than my best,


Why I am choosing to Blog in Ashland, when I am in The Central valley, in Northern California, is because this is my original, my first attempt at this kind of writing, and I Have Ideas  (some use the word "plans") about returning in the next five years to MT Shasta, where I was Born. And In my observations and experience so far, Ashland is one of the West coasts finest Artistic and Spiritual communities.  And is a suitable, nice place to empower as a "Hub" where I can center myself, as I move north over the next few years, and after I am moved north I am certain Ashland will be most vital to my existence, so I believe it is good to start being a part of the community as ever I can.


The Persona "Shasta Steward" is Who I am creating as an artist, I am J.B. Hamilton, and as an artist have an open studio in Acampo Ca, a few miles south of Sacramento. very close to Lodi. Know as Blue Coyote.


Blue Coyote has been my artwork handle since the early nineties. and the Dancing Coyote Winery where I have a shop, Studio and Sculpture Garden just happened along by coincidence.


On this Blog I will be writing about what happens to me, and what arises as an affect of those writings, and whatever new projects I finish or have in progress. In General I wish to softly track, in public, The metamorphosis of Shasta Steward, and perhaps gently lay the Blue Coyote to rest.  That would be nice.


I will Post lots of pictures as I am able.  If things in the pictures spark questions, I would be pleased to answer them in the Blog as well.

China reassigns 60,000 soldiers to plant trees in bid to fight pollution | The Independent

China has reportedly reassigned over 60,000 soldiers to plant trees in a bid to combat pollution by increasing the country's forest coverage.  A large regiment from the People's Liberation Army, along with some of the nation's armed police force, have been withdrawn from their posts on the northern border to work on non-military tasks inland. The majority will be dispatched to Hebei province, which encircles Beijing, according to the Asia Times which originally reported the story. The area is known to be a major culprit for producing the notorious smog which blankets the capital city.

Good News: This Year's Monarch Butterfly Migration Is Larger Than We've Seen in Recent Years | Better Homes & Gardens

Every autumn, monarch butterflies migrate across the U.S., heading south (and in some cases, west) for the winter. They are one of the few butterfly species that makes such a long migration—it can be up to 3,000 miles, and they often travel in such large groups that they fill the sky with their orange-and-black wings and blanket vegetation when resting. But over the past two decades, their numbers have been steadily declining, to the point that this insect is being considered for the endangered species list. Since 1997, when an estimated 682 million monarchs swooped through the air, the population has dwindled as low as 25 million monarchs in 2014 before rebounding to 150 million in 2016. So when reports of this year’s migration seem to indicate more of these winged wonders than usual, it could be a sign that their populations are continuing to make a comeback.

New urban algae canopy produces as much oxygen as four hectares of woodland | The Plaid Zebra

An urban canopy created with algae has got people talking about the link between technology and environment. According to Gizmag, the bio-digital structure pumps a fluid with microalgae around a transparent shelter, which in turn produces shade, energy in the form of biomass, and an impressive amount of oxygen amounting to the equivalent of four hectares of woodland. When it comes to photosynthesis, microalgae organisms are ten times more efficient than large trees and grass. Buildings and architectural surfaces are efficient spaces to utilize this technology.
