Favorite Quote:
The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness. ( Albert Einstein - The Merging of Spirit and Science)


A Tree
A plant so broad and tall,
With roots that grow so much they crawl.
Green leaves that pull in power,
Like the panels of a tower.
Not a drop of water goes to waste,
As if this column likes to baste.
Now the seasons begin to alter,
And the green of the leaves begin to falter.
The amazing thing is this being be
Nothing more than just a tree.
