The First Law of Thermodynamics

The First Law of Thermodynamics 'No energy in the universe is created, and none is destroyed' Therefore; every bit of energy inside us, every particle, will go on to be a part of something else. Maybe live as a dragon fish, a microbe, maybe burn in a supernova 10 billion years from now. And every part of us now was once a part of some other thing. A moon, a storm cloud, a Mammoth, a Monkey. Thousands and thousands of other beautiful things that were just as afraid to die. We gave them new Life. A good one I hope.

Drumbeat of Constant Input

I often wonder if I should have been born in another time. Ours is an era of destraction, it's a punishing drumbeat of constant input. This cocofney which follows us into our homes and into ours beds. Which seeps Into our souls. For a long time there was only one poultice for my raw nerve endings. So in my less productive moments I begin to wonder if I had just been born when it was a little quieter out there. Might I have been more focused. A more fully realised person. I'ld want some of the wonders of modernity (of course), just before everything got amplified.
