Formidable

Libby continues to expand her horizons artistically.  The toothed starfish below is about 6 inches in diameter.   Libby wants to find a way to make it beautiful as an integral part of a pine needle basket. I think it looks formidable to the point of being frightening.

Libby said she does not want suggestions.  She wants to come up with her own concept for what to do with this piece of nature.


For something even more formidable, read about Felix Baumgartner.
The world’s most daring skydiver is preparing to jump out of a balloon on the edge of space. Felix Baumgartner, 42, hopes to break an altitude record which has lasted more than 50 years. He plans to dive 120,000ft – nearly 23 miles – from the adapted weather balloon full of helium. It should take 35 seconds to break the sound barrier and ten minutes in all, reaching more than 690mph. Baumgartner will not deploy his parachute until he is less than 5,000ft from the ground and he must rely on an astronaut suit and oxygen tanks to keep him alive.
