Thanks Vidya and swami for those photos, wow it really brings it home to you seeing these, i hope they got those poor horses out of the way in time of that dust cloud. And possible further volcanos in the future hm!! that's not good. What next you have to ask yourself you just seem to waiting for the next thing to come along sigh!

Thanks for these impressive pictures! Yesterday, in Holland, we had a clear blue sky, without traces of planes, very nice! And quiet too! This eruption reminds us of the basic qualities of life and wellness. To be able to improvise and be creative, stepping out of the box under pressure (of lava, ha ha......). The 250 million costs of economic loss is just reported on the news, now, by the aviation business. More then the costs of 9:11, they say. As if that's so important! Yes, to them it is, actually, but what an hilarious statement! From my heart's viewpoint, anyway! Know what I mean?

Perhaps these volcanoes are also a sign that we spend way too much time in the air and not enough time with each other. Perhaps people will re-think their need to fly and find other forms of transportation?

Nice thread, or maybe say topic, or something else, like baseline or subject..., for reading, watching and posting.
( meaning, I am not totally comfortable with the word thread, (the sound), for describing "topics" of the forum )
Awesome pictures, by the way, What magnificent forces at play !
Thanks for beautiful and powerful video from the landscapes around the volcanic eruption on Eyjafjelluj°kul.






Here in Norway we were in direction of the ashesclouds for some time, and it became a common social topic.
Also in news-discussionforums and internett-societies it was much talked about, and here is a quote from a
discussion on the best joke or spoof en the theme of the vulcanoeruption, the dustcloud and its results :
" The Islandic economy is dead, and its last wish was that the ashes should be spread over Europe "
