Light Manipulator Aquarian Alert

Thomas Edison wishes you a happy new year in a scary voice.
Thomas Edison wishes you a happy new year in a scary voice.

Menlo Park on New Year’s Eve 1880, a crowd of 3,000 people gathered in awe. Edison, the worker of miracles, had triumphed. Historian and author Carolyn Marvin says, “Victorians saw the electric light and the effect of electricity (or ‘the lightning’) as having an almost religious power. Edison was both godlike, because he could manipulate the lightning, and a very dark and satanic figure for the same reason. He could challenge God’s order.”  http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/edison/filmmore/description.html

  1. Challenge God’s order!?! That sounds naughty. I am going to turn the lights off!
    Are you having fun this new years eve? Are the goats milked? Are your getting ready for the party? I am staying in (I think) and celebrating in my favorite place with my favorite creatures.
    I want to wish you and your family a very wonderful new year! You have made my 2013 sparkle – nice!
    Hi Ho and off we go into the brave new year!
