    Finally!

    A time comes in your life when you finally get it. When in the midst of all your fears and insanity you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out - ENOUGH! Enough fighting and crying or struggling to hold on. And, like a child quieting down...

    I Like To Think About This Quote

    You want a physicist to speak at your funeral. You want the physicist to talk to your grieving family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died. You want the physicist to remind your sobbing mother about the first law of...

    You opened this door. Why are you here? Must be your choice. There is no such thing as chance. Survey the room. Since you are here. It is expansive. Large glass windows. Billowy white sheers. The wind blows in lifting the sheers, fluffing them. The room is overcast. The skies...

    I have been thinking about Mortality,

    Immortality and God (or the lack thereof) and what the universe can tell us about existence as a whole. The universe is mortal, it exists with an inbuilt entropic nature that ensures all things come to an end. There are a finite number of planets and stars in the universe...

    My older brother is always bashing on me about

    how the future won't work out. My dreams are just a lie to him. I have big ones, I want to study animation, and become a good pianist. You have to work for your dreams, no matter how hard. It's the only way to make your dreams turn into reality. His words won't bring me down. I...

    Dreamers &Amp; Thinkers Arise!

    Why do we punish ourselves for dreaming? Through dreams we can think about a possible future! If not for dreams I'd bet we'd still be in caves. Not to mention how miserable we can be without dreams! Why do you think we are so hard on ourselves for daydreaming? Right! Back to work...

    An Ode To You, My Online Love

    Funny how this on-line cyber world plays out. An alternate universe. No, alternate dimension. My thinking is the Internet in bloom is somewhere around 20 of robust life. Its pervasiveness less. We, young and old, are defining it, understanding and defining it culture, rules and...

    Most of us spend too much time thinking about

    Romantic Relationships Are Like A Quilt
