A friend gave me this five year journal and I entered daily news consistently…for a while.Then, being human, I forgot about it until I found it the other day. I began to enter “the second year” events and found it so much fun to read what I was doing on that date last year. When we enter the occurrences of our days, it prompts one to have a life. Speak to people, go places, say yes when invited. Invite others.
How alive do we really want to be, anyway?

Listening and taking pride in that skill, while nice, is easier. IMG_4109Artist -unknown

Science Study…Impact

As I listen to people argue about global warming and such, I am struck by how limited many people’s science knowledge seems to be. Unless, we study (on our own), it may be the case that we know only as much true science research as our last solid science class in school. For what it’s worth.
