I have been going through some serious withdraw. My creative juices are all kinds of jumbled, and I cannot seem to get my groove on. Ha ha I do believe it is because I just moved several hundred miles and have been unpacking, getting vertigo, for some reason the right side of my body keeps going numb and tingling, oh, yes AND I have not had internet other than my iPhone, which happens to make me dizzy and get vertigo when I type or read for prolonged periods of time. SO… I have been enjoying my new scenery and loving my backyard, trees, critters, and a bit of rain this fine afternoon.
I am hoping to get back into the swing of things now that my computer is up and running with mad speed internet skills, and I am no longer confined to a hallway as my office space. I get to look out at beautiful greenery and giant maple trees. Fabulous bunnies, squirrels with attitudes, and a billion types of birds to admire. I am loving this place very much. I still have a lot to do, but managed to get large amounts accomplished while going through internet withdraw, vertigo confining me to bed, and playing in water of course!
I cannot believe I had to wait until now to share my complete excitement about Higgs boson! I have been following this for years – I find all of it so fascinating and it gets my imagination running wild. Rumor has it they named it the “God particle” because they could not use the real name they called it. Since it is such a tricky little particle, they did call it the god (fill in the blank) particle. Now, now, that should ruffle a few feathers out there. I think they should make it common knowledge though so the others who get offended at the implication that the particle supposedly represents the reality of a deity can settle their feathers a bit.
Why can’t we just enjoy all the awesomeness about the possibility of this amazing scientific discovery? Just sit and image for a moment what this could mean… sit in silence and ponder. Are you pondering? Maybe you need to watch this.
Theoretical physicist Garrett Lisi - Theoretical Physicist!! Pure awesomeness! I wish I were a Theoretical physicist. I want to plop myself down right in the middle of a CERN conference and soak in all of their energy, pleading for the cosmos to fill my brain with knowledge. Oh, my deep dark fantasies exposed. Lol! If you would like to go on an adventure, go check this out ICHEP2012 Press Page. Blogs and other resources.
There I just let some of my sciency side loose a bit. I think I’ll be venturing into my creative side soon. Yay!! I have my internet back. Excuse me while I go enjoy me some information consumption about the lovely Higgs boson and the supposed “God particle.”
Hey, I am listening to this song – dig!
Backyard pictures from last night. (Except for that squirrel he was from this morning.) Enjoy!
