My Medium Round Up ~ Article Contributions

"Medium is an online publishing platform developed by Twitter co-founder Evan Williams, and launched in August 2012. It is legally owned by A Medium Corporation.

I'm an "amateur".  Started publishing content at Medium.com a few years back.  Haven't been banned yet!  😂   They are gracious enough to not only allow my republished content, but it's OK if I leave comments.  The articles are very enlightening, on a wide rang of topics from science and technology to religion and philosophy to books and music and more.  One of the "professional people" even asked if they could publish one of my articles in their publication.  I was so honored.

My article "Successful People Who Studied Abroad" was published in Higher Education Revolution.

Good Fortune: Okyo's Cranes Now on View | Unframed (Reblog)

Good fortune and longevity? Every culture should and probably does have something that symbolizes this. In Japan it's the crane. Would be interesting to research the symbols of other countries. Or ... ??? Maybe we could ask Robert Langdon. :) Jokes aside, click the link because this artwork is exquisite!

 

" ... Maruyama Okyo (1733–95), a painter who revolutionized the practice and taught or influenced generations of Japanese painters."

(NOTE: At the time of the posting the paintings were on exhibit; not at the time of this reblogging.)



The Okyo artwork motivated me to search for more pictures, photos, and illustrations of cranes. Found this beautiful photograph of Grey Crowned Cranes and wanted to share it.
