River of Constant Change
I'm Chris in Toronto and I'm 52 and married and this is my personal Tumblr blog of relatively random and eclectic thoughts, likes and re-blogged postings related to my varied interests, hobbies, passions, personality and professional work, ie: Progressive/ Passionate Music - History - Science Fiction - Fantasy - Art - Photography - Sensuality - Sexuality - Beautiful Women (with tasteful nudity) -- and whatever else catches my eye or sparks my interest.
My main musical passions include: Neil Young, Klaus Schulze, Genesis (+ solo Steve Hackett, Peter Gabriel, Anthony Phillips), Pink Floyd, Tangerine Dream, Kate Bush, Renaissance... Musical and other special interest postings are well tagged, so feel free to tag search by adding: '/tagged/search+terms' to my blog URL.
The title of my blog comes from a favorite song by Genesis, "Firth of Fifth," that captures the central theme of my life, history and the nature of Tumblr blogging: "The sands of time were eroded by
The river of constant change"

I hope all my babes out there are able to find a few moments of quiet and rest today. Some things I’m thankful for:
- Protestors who spend their time and energy fighting for what’s right
- Public figures and officials who speak out against injustice
- Facebook friends who DIDN’T make racist posts this week
- Tumblr blogs that take time to research & distribute important information
- Tumblr users who boost that information
- People with open minds and hearts who want to help make a change
- My good health
- Our beautiful planet
- Food on my table and a roof over my head
- The people who support and motivate me in my work (both online and offline)
thank you. xx
With more than 126 million light-perceiving cells called photoreceptors, our eyes can see 10 million different colors and light over 1 million times dimmer than a computer screen. To do this, photoreceptors located in our retinas convert light energy into chemical and electric energy that the brain uses to calculate vision. When light strikes photoreceptors (top green layer of cells in this image), a light-sensitive protein called rhodopsin changes its shape, triggering a cascade of events that alters the electrical properties of photoreceptors and transmits a signal to the brain. Recent research has uncovered a novel chemical that restores the ability to see light to blind mice by making other cells besides photoreceptors sensitive to light.
