Time marches on! And so do we.
I enjoy keeping up with my friends who blog. Chase is one of them.
TS Kuhn, author of Structure of Scientific Revolutions, suggested that scientific communities progress as a unit. (The current Climate-gate saga serves as an example.)
I think blogging communities do the same. We get each other thinking.
Chase recently returned from a year in Taiwan. He's been home about two months. He notes that his experiences seem to have happened a lifetime ago.
As I pondered his post... I waxed poetic:
If Yoda wrote poetry…
Russian nesting dolls are we?
Old me’s contained in new?
Pearls are we?
A grain of earth at core…
building coat after coat of living splendor…
one day at a time?
Travelers are we?
Old journeys wrapped in new?
Early days encased in present?
And what of tomorrow?
Then who will we be?
Answer me that!

Via the wonder of the internet, we can build communities that stretch across the globe. How cool is that!
And together... we step forward... and grow.
