In the Morning, Every Morning

In the Morning, Every Morning Do you ever have those days when you went to bed sane and happy, and wake up unrested, lost, doubtful, unhappy, or just not ‘you’? It happens to us all – sometimes we get attacked in the night, sometimes we just lose track of who we are and what we’re…

Serendipity and Alignment, Part II

Serendipity and Alignment, Part II Yesterday, serendipity brought me to sit next to a fascinating fellow on a plane from Denver to Chicago – he was flying home to Chicago, and I was en route to Urbana IL. Knowing that I had a very tight gap between planes, I ‘heard’ (intuitively) to upgrade, and ended…

Serendipity and Alignment, Part I

Serendipity and Alignment, Part I Serendipity derives from a short story about three princes traveling to Serendip; their jaunt took in marvels and coincidences. When you’re in alignment with your own divine atomic blueprint of creation, then serendipity becomes your ground state, allowing for all manner of delightful synchronicity. It’s all about alignment – your…

Yesterday morning, I got to exercise unaccustomed muscles as I did my neighborly duty and cleared the front pavement. By the time I finished, the back porch…

Twelfth Night

Twelfth Night It’s true that Twelfth Night refers to the 12th day of Christmas, which (counting from 25.  December) means the 5th of January, and today is the 7th… but close enough. In two day’s time, there will be a Mathematician’s potluck at a friend’s house, so here is the opportunity to make a galette…

If I had it all my own way…

If I had it all my own way… I’ve been reading some intriguing work about the differences between men and women: The Keys to the Kingdom and The Queen’s Code, both by Alison Armstrong. (Her main website is www.understandmen.com if you’d like to find out about her research. I like that her books are framed…
