December 31, 2011

I was at Panera, downstairs, overhearing a passionate discussion up above. Physics and cosmology. Went upstairs and sat near the three communicants. Listening in, pretending to read my Wall Street Journal. Singularities, black holes, quantum physics, event horizons and other disputed cosmic exotica. Seldom heard such an intense and interesting engagement and debate in ages. Consulting Webster's for definitive definitions to boot. Don't know who they were. But this is over by Northeastern.

Reading now ...
Secrets of the Operating Room.
Wall Street Journal. Review/C3: 12/31/11 - 1/1/12.

Thought for now ...
Maybe beauty comes from meaning.
... Overheard.
