Whatever on a Wednesday - hope everyone is having a good week.
Sometimes things just strike me as I'm reading. I'm a paper person and I rip out pages in the newspaper or magazine and put them in a pile to digest again. Here are two little blips that struck me - enjoy
From Time Magazine 10/30 issue - in regards to a collision of two neutron stars 130 million years ago that just reached Earth signals recently, scientists learned a lot. Here is one finding that amused me:
The universe is speeding. We know the universe is expanding and a gravitational signal from a galaxy at a known distance made it possible for the first time to measure how fast: 43 miles per second per megaparsec. Here's the line that cracked me up - That's astronomy talk for "really fast."
And here's another comment from the Time Magazine 10/30 issue from author Philip Pullman who wrote the Golden Compass and others in a series. In regards to what he wants folks to take away from his writing, " The meaning of the book is never just what the author thinks it is. It's a great mistake to rely on the author to tell you. We don't know. The meaning is only what emerges when the book and the reader meet."
Ponder that on a Wednesday and carry on. Happy writing and reading.
Clunch - and its origins …
