a sidewalk homage to success
as the first spaceX crew dragon spacecraft “Endeavour” with a human crew
returns american nasa astronauts and best friends, bob and doug, to earth
“i don’t know what you could say about a day in which you have seen four beautiful sunsets.”

kinders create a long journey.
“in wisdom gathered over time
I have found that every experience is a form of exploration.”
kinders explore light and shadows.
‘find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows,
the light, and the dark which that thing provides.’
while watching the little league game
i caught a glimmer of shiny blue movement
out of the corner of my eye
and suddenly there appeared
a shimmery mermaid
all scales and tails
coming from far away
skipping onto the field
staying safe in the background
to see just what
this other world was all about
and in an instant
she was skipping off again
returning to the safe world she knew
in the great bathtub sea.
“it’s fun to peek into other people’s worlds
and see how they go about doing things.”
so it begins
writing a book with two of the grandies
have a story
have no idea
where it will go
the possibilities are endless
that is what makes it so exciting.
“writing is an exploration.
you start from nothing and learn as you go.”
-e. l. doctorow
science day today
shared their science
with the children
all of it
trying to make some sense
of the world
scottish highland longhair cows with horns
and turning into
right before their eyes
oils and flowers and salts
to soothe them in the bath
when they are tired or hurt
so much excitement
the world is filled
with endless possibilities
most people say that it is the intellect which makes a great scientist.
they are wrong: it is character.
– albert einstein
