ATouch of Genius

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger,
more complex, and more violent.
It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage
to move in the opposite direction.

~ Albert Einstein

Of Note: The gulf oil spill is an example of a situation for which there is no off-the-shelf solution. It might be the first case that the public sees up close and personal the workings of many geniuses coming together to find an answer. It is my prediction that in the future, groups of Earth-bound geniuses will be the norm not the exception in finding solutions by bringing in the light. Actually, this was the case throughout history but these guides stayed out of the limelight for the most part. However, in the coming age, more and more we will be seeing those who have guided us all along.

Today's Weather Report: It must be in the 70's Fahrenheit because it feels perfect, neither hot nor cold. This photograph was taken last night at sunset from where the old dock used to stand. What a showy display of colors--quite mesmerizing actually. I just stood there for quite some time taking in the various shades of purple and red. The garden has exploded in color as well--at least two to four weeks earlier than usual. The fact that we had no snow after February must have brought in a very early spring. The turtles are even laying their eggs already, a situation that has definitely gotten the dog's attention.
