Hike for Discovery

I started the blog to work on issues in physics & math– but life took a turn–and I joined Hike for Discovery. It’s taking me places & out of my comfort zone, forcing me to interact–err ask for help. It’s a challenge– Right now I have to figure out if I’m committed. That’s me, at the bottom of the hill, having trouble negotiating level ground. For more, check out: In the mean time, I’m trying to screw up the courage to talk about it on the radio. They say– the universe offers and then moves on. Or is it the “moving finger writes”?climb

soul-mate flower

John Laroche: Point is, what’s so wonderful is that every one of these flowers has a specific relationship with the insect that pollinates it. There’s a certain orchid look exactly like a certain insect so the insect is drawn to this flower, its double, its soul mate, and wants nothing more than to make love to it. And after the insect flies off, spots another soul-mate flower and makes love to it, thus pollinating it. And neither the flower nor the insect will ever understand the significance of their lovemaking. I mean, how could they know that because of their little dance the world lives? But it does. By simply doing what they’re designed to do, something large and magnificent happens. In this sense they show us how to live – how the only barometer you have is your heart. How, when you spot your flower, you can’t let anything get in your way.

“Telling One’s Dreams

Never goes over.”

so says David Dye. (On World Cafe)

Haven’t been here much. But I have a dream…


what a grand solution: regifting is recycling- returns to the beneficient universe! when I first heard the phrase, I thought it a brilliant re-constituion, passing allusion to “Repet” from the witty thriller on cloning (“The 6th Day”), till I found out the idea may have been revisited in a Seinfeld episode where Elaine brands Dr. Tim Whatley a regifter. myself, an early junior high school incident nearly cured me of the impulse, till it resurrected after I become the unhappy recipient of a hospital surgery bootie during a White elephant gift exchange.
wishing you all Happy Re-newal in the coming year!



It is said that Sisyphus, being near to death, rashly wanted to test his wife’s love. He ordered her to cast his unburied body into the middle of the public square. Sisyphus woke up in the underworld. There, annoyed by an obedience so contrary to human love, he obtained permission from Pluto to return to earth chastise her. But having seen again the face of this world, enjoyed water and sun, warm stones and the sea, he no longer wanted to go back to the infernal darkness. Recalls, signs of anger, warnings were of no avail. Many years more he lived facing the curve of the gulf, the sparkling sea, and the smiles of the earth. A decree of the gods was necessary. Mercury came and seized the impudent man by the collar and, snatching him from his joys, led him forcibly back to the underworld, where his rock was ready for him.

wishin all a happy new year
