Let me make a note here: I've got another "direction" that I want this blog to head in.
Thus far, I've talked about myself, about science, about all sorts of stuff. But what I really want to talk about beautiful things. Maybe it just so happens that all those things I just talked about have elements of beauty to them, but it never hurts to make sure you're aiming at the right target. I'm not quite sure how this is changing things...I'm not even sure whether or not anyone is reading this. Either way, I'll start with this:
I'm sitting on my porch in the beautiful city of New Orleans, Louisiana. I just had one of the most enlightening experiences of my life with one of the most beautiful people in the world. There are rats scampering across the street wondering why such a big monkey is still up at this time of night.
The only sound I hear is the thwack thwack of newspapers being thrown from passing cars onto the steps of unsuspecting houses. That is beautiful.
