Calm down dear.

Astronomicum Caesarium Petrus Apianus 1540There is so much buzzing about in my head at the moment, I cannot clearly sort my thoughts out and calm down to achieve the result I am aiming for.

I get so excited by all the knowledge and the creative output that has been achieved by the inhabitants of this tiny planet ovre such a relatively short period that I want to explode with the joy of it.

There is such alot of our modern world that I am repelled by, the greed and the violence, the selfishness and the lack of compassion.  But that is just the opposite side of the coin, and the brilliance of mind, the hope that comes from meeting people who are truly living their lives with compassion, and the miracle of being human is the flip side.

Wislawa Szymborska, poet extraordinaire says it better than I do.
