“Perhaps it is better to be un-sane and happy, than sane and un-happy. But it is the best of all to be sane and happy. Whether our descendants can achieve that goal will be the greatest challenge of the future. Indeed, it may well decide whether we have any future.” - Arthur C. Clarke

*“What Will the Universe Look Like In A Trillion Years?*” by Ray Villard "A trillion years from now the universe will be a much simpler place for far-future astronomers to ponder. One trillion years? Yes, when the universe is 100 times its presents age the only stars left will be the ones that are the longest burning: red dwarfs.

Anti War...... Ukraine President Orders Army East, Ready to Resume WarInsists Eastern Elections Violate Truce by Jason Ditz, November 04, 2014 Print This | Share This The Ukrainian civil war has been on hold for weeks, but seems poised to restart, as President Petro Poroshenko has ordered troops to the breakaway east with an eye toward the resumption of the conflict. Poroshenko insisted that the move was done to “repel possible attacks” by the rebels, and also claimed he “remains a firm supporter of the peace plan.” That sounds great, in theory. The problem is that Poroshenko has dec... more »

There aren't going to be all that many Democratic freshmen next year. Seth Moulton's win in MA-06 yesterday was one of the bright spots.

The Poet: Rainer Maria Rilke, "All Will Come Again"

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 hour ago
*"All Will Come Again"* by Rainer Maria Rilke "All will come again into its strength: the fields undivided, the waters undammed, the trees towering and the walls built low. And in the valleys, people as strong and varied as the land. And no churches where God is imprisoned and lamented like a trapped and wounded animal. The houses welcoming all who knock and a sense of boundless offering in all relations, and in you and me. No yearning for an afterlife, no looking beyond, no belittling of death, but only longing for what belongs to us and serving earth, lest we remain unused."
