P1xels back up. P1xelEx not working. This is the old site, not the new one.

Hi. I’ve decided to put P1xels back online. You may recall it was supposed to be back up Sept. 1, 2013. Unfortunately, we discovered a lot of issues with the huge database that had to be addressed and there were all sorts of other problems. The amazing new site is almost done, but we long ago burned through what funds I was able to raise. My developer has donated all the free time he can. I am looking for a way to finance completion.

The PixelEx app is not working anymore and we don’t know why. It should be. I am writing to the developer to see if it is easily fixed.

I am not sure what to do about submissions. I may begin posting the Daily Pic I’ve been doing on Tumblr here instead. I find Tumblr very clunky and not conducive to my kind of posts. And search on Tumblr is a joke.

I’ll be sending out an email to everybody shortly concerning recent developments.

I am happy to have P1xels back up. If we do manage to get PixelEx working again, please be aware that when we switch over to the new site, pictures posted here from this day forth will most likely have to be reposted there after we go live.

—Knox

Natali Prosvetova ~ 5 seconds to earth

When I Was Young by The Animals

The rooms were so much colder then
My father was a soldier then
And times were very hard
When I was young

I smoked my first cigarette at ten
And for girls, I had a bad yen
And I had quite a ball
When I was young

When I was young,
it was more important
Pain more pain for
Laughter much louder
Yeah, when I was young
When I was young

I met my first love at thirteen
She was brown and I was pretty green
And I learned quite a lot when I was young
When I was young

When I was young,
it was more important
Pain more pain for
Laughter much louder
Yeah, when I was young
When I was young

My faith was so much stronger then
I believed in fellow men
And I was so much older then
When I was young
When I was young
When I was young

Gianluca Ricoveri ~ Stillness

There’s a certain slant of light,
On winter afternoons,
That oppresses, like the weight
Of cathedral tunes.

Heavenly hurt it gives us;
We can find no scar,
But internal difference
Where the meanings are.

None may teach it anything,
‘ T is the seal, despair, –
An imperial affliction
Sent us of the air.

When it comes, the landscape listens,
Shadows hold their breath;
When it goes, ‘t is like the distance
On the look of death.

Cherry Blossom by Fiona Christian

Four haikus

From all directions
Winds bring petals of cherry
Into the bird pond.

Under the image
of Buddha these spring flowers
Seem somewhat tiresome.

The leafless cherry,
Old as a toothless woman,
Blooms in flowers,
Mindful of its youth.

The oak tree stands
noble on the hill even in
cherry blossom time

—Basho
