Bitter defeat

Well conservatives, are you happy? You have established a lovely legal precedent here. With the passage of proposition 2, you have managed to add bigotry to the TX constitution. Constitutional amendments have heretofore been used to expand civil rights; giving citizenship to slaves, suffrage to women, etc. But now, for the first time, an amendment has taken away rights. Gay marriage was already illegal in Texas, so now, I guess it's VERY illegal? Thats right, according to our state constitution, marriage is now strictly defined as a union between a man and a woman. Way to nip that judicial activism thing in the bud, guys, bravo.
There was only one county in the entire state that voted against it,and that's Travis county, where I live. One lonely bit of blue in a sea of red.
anyway...
We got the first part of our final design project today; we have to design an underground space for reading/studying, and a groundlevel area for gathering, and an above ground space for viewing the stars. It should be fun.
Rothko's 'Homage to Matisse' sold at Christie's for $22.4M. I had a chance to see this painting when it was in Houston a couple of years ago, and it is by far one of the most beautiful paintings I have ever seen, certainly my favorite Rothko.
I made a replica of Santiago Calatrava's condo tower in Malmo, Sweden this morning; it was cool. I've made several things in studio out of boredom,and it's kind of funny that I'm usually more excited about these things than I am about my legitimate projects.
Google earth is so awesome.

I see danger
On the corner sent by me
Shadows the ways
Straight away you ran from me
I heard you calling
Yes, I heard you calling
I heard you calling
Yes, I heard you calling

I hear silence
I hear silence in my heart (house)
From a distance
Turn your back and run (hide) from me
Heard you calling
Yes, I heard you calling
Heard you calling
Yes, I heard you calling

When it happens
You will be no friend of mine
Take the first chance
When I am no longer free
Heard you calling
Yes, I heard you calling
Heard you calling
Yes, I heard you calling

In the future
When you want me in your heart
I won't be there (help you)
If you call out in the dark
Heard you calling
Yes, I heard you calling
Heard you calling
Oh yes I heard you, heard you, heard you, heard you calling

Can you hear me deep inside
From these feelings I can't hide
Can you hear me deep inside
From these feelings I can't hide
Oh, can you hear me deep inside
From these feelings i can't hide
Can you hear me calling you
Can you hear me calling you
Can you hear me calling you
Can you head me calling you

I'm so proud to say I live in Travis County. Texas? ...Not so much. I saw the 'Homage to Matisse'when I was in Houston and I must agree with you; it is most definitely a beautiful painting. You have to show me these little side projects of yours sometime. You've got talent, kid. =)
