On Sadness, Time, and the Universe

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 3, 2012, 10:40 PM
Thanks for the visit.
Feel free to write on the walls.
Or Not... :)

Tonight I stay up late, on the floor, of the little office, listening to programs on theoretical physics, knowing it all matters and none of it matters.

We are travelers in time and space. We live only in the present by force of will exposed from birth to the rip-tides of memory.

Relativity implys time is linear, but vectors in either direction...forward, backward, sideways... no one knows... all that is understood is what we perceive and feel. Quantum Mechanics and Relativity do not agree, so all the kings numbers and all the kings men can not figure out what the truth is in the end.

And it does not matter.

Only Imagination limits Reality.

Only our minds limit how close the past is to the future, and how real our loved and lost are in our hearts.

Hang in my friend read your journal entry too...

We have a long road to travel before we may perhaps see some light.

the bravery of our peers, our predecessors, and ourselves may seem like

so much spray off waves crashing against immobile rocks, but this is not so,

we prevail, if only to be here for each other. :)
