Rekindling the Inner Light

Sometimes our light goes out,
but is blown again into instant
flame by an encounter with
another human being.

Each of us owes the deepest
thanks to those who have
rekindled this inner light.

~Albert Schweitzer

Of Note: Each of us has a person or two in our lives who has literally saved us by shining their light at just the right moment. We might consider at this moment sending a non-verbal thanks on the waves of thought to these benefactors. Thought being substance is another form of light. Thus, light is circulated and, in the process, changes for the good whatever is in its path. Gratitude circulated daily could change the world.

Today's Weather Report: Light snow is falling at the moment, little flakes because of the cold. Minus 20 degrees greeted us upon awakening this morning. Extremely cold days are not unusual when the moon is full. Last night looked like day because of the moon's brightness. Marie continues to send luscious sunset shots from her backyard. I am grateful every day for having such a talented and loving sibling.

Watch For Change Snippet: What has been described as the first computer has been identified. The mysterious tangle of finely-crafted gears was discovered in the hull of a sunken Mediterranean ship in 1900. It was considered a curiosity until now. With the help of 3-D x-ray,scientists believe the 2,000 year-old mystery object was "a calendar dedicated to the Olympic games together with calendars to determine the timing of the eclipses and the phases of the sun and moon." A member of the research team who made the discovery exclaimed: "It's a jaw-dropping astonishing device. I still don't know how they did it." The they is still a mystery, although the mechanical calendar bore months in the Corinthian language.
