The fruition of interstellar travel and planetary colonization is only a few decades away.
I was selected to be part of Beyond the Fiction NASA Social at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md
Composer Michael Giacchino and the National Symphony Orchestra at Wolf Trap were amazing: performing an enigmatic score from Star Trek: Into Darkness live! The discussion before the show was informative and wonderful, all about Star Trek’s influence on the NASA culture, Vulcan misfits, and the space race.
Between all Star Trek realms, we see the same consistency for space fashion, travel design, future exploration, and universal wonder.
In the meantime, human-bound stargazers can follow the stars into the night sky and find these soft-spacy digital images fun to absorb.
Below I have my digital interpretation of the Hubble Space Telescope from the control center and the upcoming secret ICESat-2 spacecraft mission!

~Keep the fire and sharpen your spear.
Halloween-themed games are fun to play all year round. Nonetheless, I doubt any chills can come from the japanese multiplayer kawaii mayhem I am enduring, but I do love the magic atmosphere, fashionable strange friends and the whimsical video music. Find it all here: http://ameblo.jp/optivion/
Poem for Sunday Shake
I had painted in October, inside the tune of the day
Was lured by autumn’s crisp ink
Central to the song you came, internal colors
Titian, untitled and cool.
Shake it off, shake it off.
~Fools are poets with invisible wings and colorful brushes.
Groovy technology, artificial intelligence, and space travel:
5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0 … All engines running. Liftoff!

The Ghoulie Bike
Beam the Ghoulie Bike to the surface of the planet. Ride or drift through the Martian desert or an ice moon at the edge of the galaxy overflowing with strange aliens and rogue robots. With air to ground Teleportation ability this motorcycle is a high-speed terrain vehicle that is the perfect mode of planetary travel or intergalactic post-apocalyptic road rage.
The Ghoulie Bike Wave.
All is being corrected on the third dimension, muahaha!
The Ghoulie Bike
Bending through space: The departmentalizing of material properties to find and organize a pattern again!
The Ghoulie Bike Teleports.
Starting a new concept for a Ghoulie Bike: Traveling from point A to point B from a hovering space pod instantaneously. Not much energy needed if the distance is from orbit to planet.
~The light guide whispers
Pulsating space calls
A fall farther away
Remember: You have all the capacity and endowment to have an impact on your location and atmosphere, but your surroundings don’t really have the potential to influence you.
What am I doing this month?
I am slowly working on being a bit more clever about counting my time as an artistic entrepreneur. Specially if you travel every few months.
Remember social media and marketing take away from the creative act. Focus on the work and hopefully everything else will start coming together. So keep playing music, writing, drawing and stay creative.
Remember: art is fun! VanGoYourself
And remember: Rock baby, Rock!
Always looking forward to spending time outdoors.
~ Make sure you catch some rays when you can!
It’s a good time for solar energy
Audrey came from the clouds:
She played on the golden
She did not know I slept
She kept vanilla pockets!
And smiled through breakfast.
From her hand a sword:
From the print a star
From the dark a wink
That light, that magic!
She left for the holiday.
~A twelfth century samurai known for her stamina and nimbleness on the battle field.
(Thought of the week)
There are no written rules, there are no true patrons, do your thing.
Art is light, choose light as your weapon.

~The Best thing when you are near the water is to sketch.
Strange Love, indeed.
While in Kyoto I made a piece or artwork titled: The Lady and the Wormhole.
The gardens in the city set a mood of serenity and quiet embrace. I was working on a short story about a woman who could travel through space using her garden as the vehicle. I had a dream about her wearing a blue kimono using the small magical landscape to travel through time. In Japan the landscape is part of the history of the town or the prefecture. The Shinto religion is ancient in the country and it holds trees, springs and mountains to be places of spiritual power. It would seem any of the gardens I visited would have the possibility for intergalactic transformation, well at least in my imagination.
~Make new mistakes, draw strange pictures,
write neoteric poetry, dance in the kitchen and sing to the ocean… Cheers!
~HAPPY NEW YEAR!
~Feliz Año Nuevo
The Ocean was dreaming and remembered the drawing.
~ Merry Christmas!
~ Feliz Navidad y próspero Año Nuevo!
~She is an android with a backpack full of friends.
Ella es como un robot!
Music creates stars inside the spaces.
Halloween inside Christmas.
(That’s exactly what I mean!)

December’s Tokyo Angel (Oil on canvas)
Winter delivers strange tokyo angel.
Flight through the franchise.
I saw it, I heard it —>Metropolitan colors vertical,
White calls giant metal rectangles
Float through the neon.
I spoke it, I learned it —>Urban violet spreads,

A wormhole is a hole through space. A bridge through space-time and a way to fold the known universe. If we traveled through a wormhole we could come in contact with different variations of matter, perhaps even elements from our world with exotic properties all together, but remember: wormholes are conjured up only on paper, sci-fi movies and by current scientific theory.
One problem is how large would a wormhole be? and where could one find a wormhole? Some say they exist in microscopic form, some say perhaps a black hole could hold the answer. Size might be important, but I believe even if we find or create a hole through the universe, the technology we have now could not prepare our ship, vessel or craft for transport through its gravitational field.
Another problem would be the rapture of the tunnel, how long would it stay open? The Einstein-Rosen wormhole might break very quickly, but some say if the wormhole contained “exotic” matter, it could stay open for a planned amount of time. In theory the craft would have to have part of the same exotic matter in its engine or fabric. In Quantum theory if we did find a wormhole, learn to open one or become one with its fabric, we could probably time travel and I could do more research on the topic. Who knows if we did find a wormhole it could include part of an exotic liquid like ocean within its conductor, why not?

Painting and working with oils again.

I am conjuring up some pre Halloween fun. “Jack O’ Goldbot ” is on the case. Lately I have been spending more time with nature and away from technology. The future is here: Drones, iPhones, Wi-fi and self-tracking computers all following your data and your path. Technology with its silver claws making you feel good about being connected to cyber friends and golden apps. All is well, but perhaps the companies that organize all your data might use it against you in the coming years. Privacy, credit and health insurance data will all be collected under your identity or your given number, muahaha!

~Being Creative! It makes one passionately curious.
Remembrance for the forgotten.
~Every moment is special.
Visual dialect can open imagination and action clears the static.
If you are still: you are on a journey,
If you are moving: you are on a journey.
Don’t make assumptions.
knowledge has a voice.
Assumptions are useless if you don’t have information.
Language is knowledge. Creativity is part of language.
Everyone has their own journey.
A journey starts with an idea.
Ideas provide a call to action and imagination is the processor.
On your journey, do your best and treat people with kindness.
The light comes from the action. Find your place to breathe and open your eyes.
God is light and your existence means God is aware.
~You are energy in a vessel exploring the moment.

Machine and humans will crystallize:
the Axial Aphrodite will undoubtedly rise
calculating mechanical petals
electric patterns form and atomize.
I will find you wild roses:
And words for your spirit
silent coffee roasting in the dark
holding a patch of sunlight from the porch.
I will form a spring of flame:
And melt the urban ice
soaking green from the brush
holding a few minutes of endless embrace.
Valentine’s Day is not about hearts, it’s about strawberries.
