Matthew ~ Candy Kisses ~ Fairy Tales ~ Sand Castles
This is my girlfriend, Maisy. She's a model who does commercials for Gap Children.
We go to school together ... It's how we met.
Either your relationship works, or it doesn't.
It has to be fun and make you feel like a kid!

We Experience Love and Seek Soul Reunion.
Valentine's Day pushes buttons. It goes to issues of how one sees them self in a relationship, with fear of failure and intimacy often a key factor leading to sabotage. Most people, struggling to heal issues and find out who they are and now becoming, can no longer commit to relationships. If you can afford to be free and live on your own, partnerships should be about love, fun and sharing, not co-dependency and control. To live alone, to be comfortable in one's own energies without fear and guilt based on others' needs and expectations, can work if your soul brings the synchronicities that show you the path taken is correct. Of course much of this goes to money. You may think you are playing 'outside the box', but if issues rule your life and sabotage is the end result, you are mistaken, and you will crash to re-evaluate your mistakes once again.
It is getting more and more difficult to turn away from your soul's purpose as we reach the end of the program. Nothing will work until you update your grid programming.
On the matter of love ... it's a frequency. It's energies are often about illusion and disillusion.
Sometimes we build sandcastles in the sky about finding The One - a Vision Quest the heart embraces to reunite body, mind and soul. In the flow of the collective unconsciousness, this frequency is as difficult to find as it is to maintain the electromagnetic bridge that unites the grids, often collapsing in the sands of time.
Why sandcastles are so easy to build New Scientist - February 11, 2008
Every child knows that you don't have to follow an exact recipe to build a sandcastle. All you need is sand plus a splash of water - and now physicists understand why. Mario Scheel at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Gttingen, Germany, and colleagues studied how a liquid squeezes between grains. Using a series of X-ray images to build up a three-dimensional picture of the sand pile, they found that with the driest sand-and-water recipe, the grains were linked by 'liquid bridge's' shaped like a double-ended trumpet. When enough of these bridges form, the mixture is able to hold its shape. From then on adding more liquid doesn't make much difference, unless so much is added that the mixture becomes saturated.
"The liquid goes into the crevices and fuses the bridges together. As long as the bridges retain something of their original shape their mechanical properties remain the same," explains Martin Brinkmann, one of Scheel's collaborators. The result could be applied to many different liquids and granular materials, and help us understand other mixing processes. It might even help to determine the 'critical point' at which mud and water become a landslide.
Once upon a time in Bay Ridge Brooklyn, a local male friend called to me from the street, 6 stories below. No, he didn't use his cellphone ... he beckoned me to come down from my 'ivory tower by the bridge' to join him in the park for a concert.
As I stood on my terrace, looking out at the flurry of excitement in the park, he shouted, "Yo ... Ellie! How ya' doing? Ya need to get out more! Come down from your ivory tower and listen to the concert in the park."
Sometimes people think I never leave my apartment as I live and work here and every day sets the stage for another adventure, the time passing as quickly as reality. And so I agreed to join him.
No climbing down long tresses for this psychic ... besides I never wanted to be a princess/priestess - waiting for my Prince Charming to rescue me. Those ladies always have issues and god forbid they should have sex! Oy vey! No .. I don't want to be a Jewish Princess either.
I didn't take the stairs (too lazy) ... but chose the elevator as off I went to explore 50's Rock and Roll! Met some famous oldies groups ... and had lots of fun.
When I started doing readings I was the same age, or younger, than most clients. Now I am older ... turning 65 on Sunday ... and perhaps wiser ... as many clients are guided here to talk about their journey through this fairy tale and if we all live happily ever after when it's over! (wink)
Young at Heart Music File
Sometimes I feel like the TV character Eli Stone - whose destiny is guided by music. Is Eli Stone a take on Ellie Crystal? I keep hearing a song in my head that relates to the situation I'm experiencing in the moment. When I was with friends the other day, twice I burst out in song for a few seconds.
Reality is a consciousness computer. Computer code is like a song in your head - at some point it has to come out. Listen for your songs when you are out and about, as a reflection of your emotional code. You could learn a lot about yourself.
Reality programs are myth, math, and metaphor, so why not look to The Science of Fairy Tales for clues and moral allegories, as I make analogies about just about everything else. It's all about magic.
From Live Science - February 11, 2008
In the Brothers Grimm story of Rapunzel, a witch holds a beautiful young woman captive in a tower. Rapunzel is blessed with a lovely singing voice and long, long blond hair. One day, her voice enchants a prince passing through a nearby forest. They fall in love, and Rapunzel lets down her hair so that the prince may use it to climb the tower to meet her. This chain of events begs readers to ask a question. Can human hair support the weight of another person?
On average one strand of hair can support about three and one-half ounces, or about the weight of two candy bars. Each strand of dark hair is generally thicker, and therefore stronger, than blond hair.
But, alas, Rapunzel must make do with blond locks. Given that blondes generally have about 140,000 hairs on their heads, her hair should easily support the weight of many, many princes. However, there is more to this story.
If Rapunzel simply let down her hair and the prince started climbing immediately, her hair would not break, but it might rip out. Also, the rest of her body might not be able to support the weight. Thankfully, there are strategies that she can use to help reduce the strain on her head and body.
Nathan Harshman, Assistant Professor of Physics at American University in Washington, DC, suggests Rapunzel would be safer and more secure if she tied her hair around something before lowering it. ŇThe whole idea is that you can use the friction of the hair against itself in the knot, and whatever it is tied around will support the weight of the prince.Ó That is a much better idea than making RapunzelŐs scalp the anchor point.
The Little Mermaid
In the Disney version of Hans Christian AndersenŐs The Little Mermaid, Ariel (the mermaid) asks a witch to make her human because she has fallen in love with a human prince. The witch bargains with Ariel and takes her voice in exchange for performing the transformation. For a considerable part of the story Ariel cannot speak, which is a problem because the prince can only recognize her by her incredibly beautiful singing voice. Later, she recovers her voice and wins the love of the prince (sorry to spoil the ending).
In the story, Ariel loses her voice because of a curse. However, a less skilled sorceress could use a different method to silence a singing mermaid. Scientists have figured out a way to bend sound waves around an object and, can even prevent the escape of all sounds created inside a given area (important for keeping a transformed, singing mermaid from being heard).
Recently, Steve Cummer, Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University announced that it is theoretically possible to create such a sound shield. Building on research demonstrating how light waves can be bent around an object to make it appear invisible, Cummer and his collaborators used mathematical analysis to show how to do the same thing with sound. They established that it is possible to create a material that bends sound waves around walls, pillars, or any enclosed area, where the sound waves emerge as if nothing had been in their way. It would be like someone in the bedroom being able to hear what someone in the living room said, but as if there were no wall between them.
A side effect of this discovery is that sound waves generated inside the enclosed area would never escape. If the witch had been extremely clever, she could have built this material, and there would have been no need for a curse. Or maybe she did, and a transparent sound shield based on these principles was what enveloped Ariel until her love for the Prince melted it away, finally releasing her melodious voice for the Prince to hear.
1,001 Arabian Nights
One of the most exciting objects found in fairy tales is the flying carpet. In tales from a wide variety of cultures, including 1,001 Arabian Nights, these tangled tapestries take flight to carry people vast distances. Flying carpets are clearly impossible, right?
Three scientists recently published a paper in the journal 'Physical Review Letters' showing that there are conditions under which a carpet could fly. They used the basic laws of physics to show that a small, thin carpet could fly if the air were vibrating at the right frequency, much like how a piece of tissue paper floats softly to the ground when it is dropped. Their calculations showed that small waves of air in repeated fast pulses could steer a carpet at a speed of around one foot per second.
DonŐt expect to see Aladdin flying by anytime soon, but the scientists write that all of their conditions 'are within the realm of possibilities in nature and in technology. Making a heavy carpet fly would, of course, require a much more powerful engine, and our [calculations] suggest it will remain in the magical, mystical, and virtual realm as it has existed for millennia.'
Perhaps some fairy tales are more grounded in reality than others. Or maybe these precious stories are exactly what we thought they were. An idea is fertilized by the imagination and expanded beyond what seems possible. Or maybe science has come so far over the years that scientists are looking beyond the problems of the physical world and into the imaginations of children for their inspiration.
What could be next? Perhaps a scientific debate over the temperature at which porridge is considered 'just right.'
