Our sun is one of 100 billion stars in our galaxy. Our galaxy is one of the billions of galaxies populating the universe. It would be the height of presumption to think that we are the only living things within that enormous immensity. — Wernher von Braun
Well, if you put it that way… I now feel very small.
If one proves the equality of two numbers a and b by showing first that “a is less than or equal to b” and then “a is greater than or equal to b”, it is unfair, one should instead show that they are really equal by disclosing the inner ground for their equality. – Emmy Noether
I couldn’t resist an equality and math quote. I think, as a whole, we don’t really understand both. LOL
Just taking a moment to look up.
Thought this was a great quote about how we experience the light.
Today’s photo comes from inside Northeast Portland. This park, which is in a roundabout in NE Portland, on Glisan and 39th avenue. Recently some vandals gave Joan a crown and her horse a unicorn horn. That act of mythological defiance took 3 days to repair. I wish people would leave things alone!
Still, I dedicate today’s photo to my friends @PaceSmith and @Kyeli for following their hearts and embarking on a new journey and following their dreams.
I found this quote while looking for something to do with hiking, since that’s what I’m off to do today. Going to hike near Mt. St. Helens, Washington. It’s supposed to be near 100* this afternoon. That’s got me running for the hills. I know when I’ve found a good quote, because it slaps me in the face, makes me read it a second and third time and then sinks in. This one did that. Enjoy.
I have never found anywhere, in the domain of art, that you don’t have to walk to. (There is quite an array of jets, buses and hacks which you can ride to Success; but that is a different destination.) It is a pretty wild country. There are, of course, roads. Great artists make the roads; good teachers and good companions can point them out. But there ain’t no free rides, baby. No hitchhiking. And if you want to strike out in any new direction, you go alone. With a machete in your hand and the fear of God in your heart. – Ursula K. Le Guin

When looking for quotes, this one resonated with me. It just so happens to be Jackie O’s birthday, too. Fabulous.
You have to be doing something you enjoy. That is a definition of happiness: Complete use of one’s faculties along lines leading to excellence in a life affording them scope. It applies to women as well as to men. We can’t all reach it, but we can try to reach it to some degree. – Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
