in the end

To my loyal readers... I'm still around. "Not dead yet." To quote Monty Python. But I'm still shell-shocked by what happened to me on October 16...


Today was pivotal.

I sent a formal letter to the RASC Toronto Centre. We'll see what happens...

My blood pressure is high.

My doctor is concerned.

Clearly, I need to chill.

Astronomy is good. In many ways. And under normal circumstances it makes me calm. That's a feeling I often experience when I look at things through the telescope: calm. Extreme, deep calm. 

The Universe slowly churning away, spinning, evolving, and letting us have a look around. Developing our theories and insights and rules.

I will endeavour to find some time under the stars. That's what matters. That said, it's hard this time of year. But I continue to closely watch the Clear Sky Charts...

In the end, there's no reason to be mean or vindictive or hold a grudge. But some hold grudges. They MUST win. No matter what. But they don't get it. Funny/odd when astronomers don't understand that. There's NO, zero, point in fighting. 'Cause you're gonna die, sooner or later.
