A new look and a title change. The look is likely to change to over time until it is perfected. I was also able to overcome the technical problem by choosing a different theme and making only the most recent ten posts available without clicking the plus button at the bottom of the page. Seven years of content was just too much for the old theme to load. In the mean time some words of wisdom and back to regular posting after a break.
The Little Things:
I was going through a not so nice split from my wife, working a job I hate and living somewhere I didn’t want to. On top of life’s normal problems with bills and relationships it was getting to be too much to handle. I made a coffee and sat in my lazy-boy chair , looked out the window and I noticed the leaves on the trees. They are pretty complex organisms onto themselves. The BBC has 5 webpages explaining the complex science of photosynthesis and that one tree is full of them. It’s a very calming affect to realize how amazing life is, if a single leaf is that complex imagine how sophisticated we are. Even on molecular level a single cell is an entire universe of atoms and particles…etc. We are very lucky to get to observe things like this. Remembering how amazing it is that we exist and how much has to be right for even a single leaf to function is a humbling reminder that our day to day problems are pretty insignificant against how much of a natural miracle life is.
I’m happy to be back after a long break and some technical problems and look forward to regular posts again.
