Staring Into Existence

What are these things that we call, “space and time”? We never truly understand it, no matter what theory comes along. No matter how proud we become of the hypothesis. What is this space that we live in? We divide it up, the infinite, into little compartments. Walls. Fences. Divisions. We claim and fill our spaces, within, outside, with the collections, trying hard to satisfy … Continue reading Staring Into Existence

Friday nights were filled with popcorn, a beverage and a series of television programs on a national broadcasting station, titled, “TGIF.” When I was a kid, my friends and family would huddle around the few sitcoms that were broadcasted during the Friday night lineup.

Knowing that what is visible is less than a small fraction of the infinite universe is so incredibly mysterious. We have such a limited understanding of all of this infinite … Continue reading Limited

I’ve … Continue reading “My Way Or The Highway,” Said The Woman.
