There Is No Cat

We apologize for the inconvenience

Sunday, September 26, 2004


Yesterday was a beautiful day, with blue blue skies. I like this shot from Waterfront Park in Trenton, right on the banks of the Delaware River. I didn't see any signs of the flooding that happened on the river a week or two ago when the remnants of Ivan came through.

blue sky, blue building

That's a really great photo, Ralph. Surreal, and peaceful at the same time.

I hope your family comes through okay with Jeanne.

wow. amazing photo, ralph. i guess that's a building, is it? or just a structure of some sort...? from this angle it looks paper thin.

nice to see you updating again!

Thanks, Shelley and Deb, for the kind comments. Surreal and peaceful was just what I was going for. Deb, there are actually two buildings in the photo, identical glass-covered buildings right at the banks of the Delaware River. The buildings are triangular, so from where I shot the photo, you don't see the other walls, just the ones facing the river.

Thanks for asking about my family, Shelley. They were pretty much spared this time; I think the winds only got up to about a steady 40-45 mph where they are. They evacuated when it originally looked like they might take a direct hit, but returned when it became clear that they were only going to be grazed by the storm and that the location they escaped to in Georgia would probably be hit worse than their home.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio

There used to be a cat
