No surprise at all. The Jelly Fish exhibit in Monterey, as this video shows, is both beautiful and relaxing. Slow down for a bit and let it bring some peace into your life.
Powerful work, both the photography and the writing. A person could spend hours here, learning and thinking.
As a retired clinical psychologist, I, too, have always disdained armchair diagnoses without an actual evaluation. The phenomenon, however, seems to have increased significantly over the last decade with the rise in popularity of so-called television "psychologists" who are more than willing to share their diagnoses of people with whom they have never met.
Frankly, I think it is a big mistake. Arguing about a "diagnosis" only distracts from focusing on the behavior of the person in question and the outcomes of his/her behavior.
In the case of Mr. Trump, I would ask whether his behavior is harmful either to himself or to others. The majority of the public seems to agree with the latter, yet a small minority still supports him and accepts his behavior without question. Much more potentially harmful, however, are those who know his behavior is unacceptable yet support him to achieve their own ends. In clinical terms, they are "enablers" who continue to support unacceptable, possibly harmful, behavior despite knowing that it can be destructive.
In my opinion the diagnosis is secondary to the behavior which must be addressed. At this point an image of Tony Soprano comes to mind. In any case I would agree, we should "be afraid, be very afraid" but more importantly we should take action to insure that the inappropriate behavior is confronted and not enabled.
This is a pretty amazing fete for any musician.
Wonderful photos despite some of the sad subject matter. All of these are worth seeing.
