    Love the quote along with the pic this week! Happy WW!

      Thanks very much, Theresa! Have a happy WW!

  • Meghan @JaMonkey April 17, 2012, 9:13 pm

    I love the mountain

    • Eric Edelman April 18, 2012, 2:30 am

      Thanks Meghan. The mountain is a drawing of an ancient extinct volcano, “Mount Mazama,” which eventually formed Crater Lake in Oregon. The picture is taken from a physical geography text published in 1907.

    That is very cool. Sort of like “Around the World in 80 Days” gone wild.

    • Eric Edelman April 18, 2012, 2:15 am

      Thanks! That’s very kind of you. I never thought about the connection to the Jules Verne story; it’s an interesting way to look at the picture.

  • Carol @ Always Thyme to Cook April 17, 2012, 9:32 pm

    Have a great week :)

  • Kris @ Beyond the Whiskers April 17, 2012, 9:54 pm

    Ok, this is really cool. I could just keep reading this picture over and over and not get sick of it.

    • Eric Edelman April 18, 2012, 2:05 am

      Thanks very much for your kind words!

  • jessica @peekababy April 17, 2012, 10:45 pm

    sounds like the life plan of my 3 year old daughter, lol!

    • Eric Edelman April 18, 2012, 2:00 am

      That’s the only way they learn, and the best way, too!

  • Create With Joy April 17, 2012, 10:59 pm

    Love it!

  • Tina´s WW w linky April 18, 2012, 2:10 am

    cool pic – all about a journey :)

    • Eric Edelman April 18, 2012, 2:33 am

      Thanks, Tina. Yes, it’s about a couple of journey, one mental and the other physical.

  • EdT. April 18, 2012, 6:31 am

    It reminds me of “The Little Engine that Could”. Which is sorta surprising, since it has been like a half century since I read that book last!

    Happy WW,

    • Eric Edelman April 18, 2012, 1:22 pm

      I see why it would. And I love that book. Thanks for your visit and your comment!

      Thanks! Yes: even though the thought came to me to put up the world as a satellite, it confuses me also. And I feel that’s part of the fun.

  • momto8blog April 18, 2012, 7:22 am

    so cool! I am thinking about traveling too!!

    • Eric Edelman April 18, 2012, 12:57 pm

    I love your collage image! I’m trying to start learning digital collage myself…it’s a whole lot of fun. Thanks for sharing!

    • Eric Edelman April 18, 2012, 12:53 pm

      Thanks so much! Yes, it is definitely a lot of fun (in my opinion, it’s one of the most enjoyable computer pastimes there is). Thanks again for your kind comment and visit.

  • NCSue April 18, 2012, 9:10 am

    Thank you for hosting – hope to see you at my place, too!

    • Eric Edelman April 18, 2012, 12:42 pm

      Thanks! Sure thing; I’ll be glad to visit your site.

  • Random Bits {my muppet!} April 18, 2012, 9:17 am

    I like! This one feels a bit steampunky to me- the combination of the vintage and technological creation. Very neat!

    • Eric Edelman April 18, 2012, 12:39 pm

      Thanks for your kind comments. I feel a lot of my work is aligned with steampunk sensibilities because its source material is taken from Victorian engravings. To see more work like this, please visit my Fine Art America website at: http://eric-edelman.artistwebsites.com/art/all/all/all
