Postcard from Up North

I thought of that while riding my bicycle. ~ Albert Einstein, in reference to the Theory of Relativity

(The bikes of summer are everywhere Up North. They help a mind wander.)

    Hi Maureen: Imagine my surprise when I turned on the radio on Friday morning to WKAR and there you were being interviewed!! It was an excellent interview and I could just picture the food you brought in and demonstrating how to eat without utensils!! Super job!!

    I don’t know if it is a true quote or not but I read this somewhere a long time ago.

    It is a statement:
    “Every day I start by standing on the shoulders of those that have proceeded me and every day I attempt to contribute in kind, but every day I fall short”. It was presented that Albert Einstein said or wrote that and it is from memory so I may have not repeated every word accurately but you get the idea.

    And on Netflix a Nova program showed a lot of information on him. Apparently he tried in vain to come up with a unified theory that would connect the “large” (planets and the like) and “small” (atoms, electrons, particles, etc.) but never did. Perhaps it was that disappointment that caused him to relate the above statement. Today scientists are into “string theory” in an attempt to do what Einstein never did, unite everything with one theory.

    Am off to Wisconsin for a week and my annual sibling reunion!
    best, Jerry Wakeen

    Maureen, the serenity in those Zen moments provide us with
    such chrystalline clarity-the man who invented
    the laser was sitting on a park bench
    watching a butterfly right in front of him.
    Thank you, as always, for your peaceful
    interludes.

 

I'd love to hear from you. Please leave a comment.
