Brain Twister

Wow so it turns out I am not entirely talking to the wall over here... cool!

This is only post two, but I can already feel a trend developing - hypothetical, emotional, metaphysical, and otherwise weird topics that I ponder lot but don't discuss very much. I like to think about concepts like these because it broadens our perspectives a bit, and creeps us out. And I've got a pretty basic one stuck in my head right now.

Infinity. Specifically, in terms of the universe. Outer space continuing forever is something I just can't wrap my head around. Seriously, have you thought about it? It's kind of corny, but exactly how long is forever? Imagine stretches of nebulas and solar systems and stars just going and going. What's outside of them? How can there not be a physical limit to space? When I picture the universe, there always has to be some kind of ending, some sort of box enclosing it. Because of that, I used to have this image as a little kid of our planets and galaxies existing in a little snow globe sitting on the mantlepiece in the house of some giants in a bigger world. But their world was only a snow globe too, in some larger place, and so on and so on. I guess this is starting to turn into a religious thing as well, so I'll stop before I get off topic.

Bonne nuit!
Goodnight, wall!

How to start a blog... sort of



How has your day been? Your week, month, year?

Seeing as my year started ten days ago, that's a bit hard to determine. But to satisfy you, pretty well.

Satisfaction. Now that's something you cannot glean from one careless response, can you? In one bland, perfunctory conversation?

Not in my experience. But I would have you know that what you may see as a pointless chat can lead to marvels.

A pointless chat on what seems to be a pointless blog. But don't worry, we may be able to brighten things up here yet. 

Yes indeed. Have you tried striking up a conversation with someone lately? Someone you don't know, or want to know, or someone who has a really cool shirt on?  Maybe that's what I'm doing here. Isn't that how we all seem to start friendships?

Isn't it?
