Time, politics, and Cold Mountain

Don Douglas called my attention to a wonderfully clear explanation of the difficulty in reconciling what we intuitively perceive in terms of time and space and the much different picture that is painted of time and space by modern science. You’ll find it and some personal comments in Spirit Space.

Meanwhile, I’ve tried to come to grips with “Cold Mountain,” the book , in Peace Passion. My problem is I seem to be the only one who doesn’t think this is the best thing since the invention of the sandwich.

And, of course, there’s plenty of new and interesting stuff in US and the World, mostly from Don. He’s obviously been looking out for the world while I’ve been chasing seals, eagles, and (most of the time) new computers and the whole Apple “Ilife” thing which I’ll write about one of these days if I ever get my act together. ;-)

(I got pictures of the eagle (at agreat distance) and of the seals ( a little closer) but I haven’t put them online yet. If you live nearby and want to see the seals they’ve been hanging around the rocks that are just visible from the RT88 bridge in Westport. The public boat landing between the bridge and the Moby Dick restaurant is a good place to go and look for them.
