Fireworks are Fun and Fantastic!

FireworXStand_07

Back around the 7th century the Chinese invented fireworks. Punctuating cultural events, and religious purposes, fireworks are part of the human experience. We can enjoy them with sight, sound, smell, and even touch, as we sense the concussion in our bones. Fireworks are beautiful on so many different levels, that each one of us has a unique experience.

For me, some of my earliest, and best memories involve fireworks. Warm summer nights, celebrations with family and friends, parades and picnics. Throughout my entire life, I have spent time trying to re-create those experiences of awe and beauty. As a child I have made drawings, cartoons, even collected extinguished fireworks for a pretend stand. My neighbors must have thought me odd, sitting behind my red wagon stand, selling burnt out fireworks for play money! Later I took it to the next level, and experimented with making my own fireworks, safely I might add. No one got hurt!

My first software product was, “The Digital Fireworks Stand”, a CD-ROM based simulation that also included history, a glossary of terms, and safety tips. Since then I have paid tribute to fireworks with several other software titles, including screen savers. Even the name of this company honors fireworks! So you see, I am still drawing and making fireworks, sitting behind my red wagon stand, waiting for my neighbors.

Celebrate with fireworks each and every day, all year long!

CicadaX_178Arguably not as beautiful as fireworks, but just as noisy, a new 17 year Cicada emergence will happen on the east coast this summer. There are many species of Cicada; pronounced si-kay-da. Some are annual, others are periodical, remaining in juvenile stages for as many as 17 years before emerging as adults! Check out this screensaver dedicated to the 17 year Magicicada emergence of 2004, also known as ‘Brood X’.
