5.15.19 … “Not only is the Universe stranger than we think, but it is also stranger than we can think.”

“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2019 Labyrinth Walks, Myers Park Baptist Church-Charlotte NC:

Sometimes I just need labyrinth time with a labyrinth friend. Thank you, Toni!

As we drove to and from MPBC, we talked about multiple intelligences, reading, Jonathan Haidt, technology overload, TMBS, Barbara Brown Taylor’s Holy Envy, and of course labyrinths …

As we approached we noticed children on the labyrinth. One almost 4 year old was riding in circles on the labyrinth.

The day was glorious. The sky was blue with whispy clouds. The weather was cool and the bright green leaves provided almost complete shade to the labyrinth. The birds were chattering. And there was a large colony of tiny ants crawling out from the center Chartres stone.

My reverie was broken by the roar of the chainsaw in the distance.

My thoughts kept focusing on the tall oaks. I wondered how water can travel up from the roots to the trees’ top leaves.

I then I watched a very pregnant mom walk by with two little ones in her stroller, talking on her phone through ear buds. I wondered if she ever allowed herself quiet time.

I heard several planes overhead and noticed their tail in the sky.

And then both Toni and I noticed the honking birds flying above … there were 4 of them flying in what appeared to be synchronized routine … then they cawed, definitely crows.

And here is my quote for today …

“Not only is the Universe stranger than we think, but it is also stranger than we can think… What we observe is not nature itself, but nature exposed to our method of questioning… The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you.”

~Werner Heisenberg (father of the uncertainty principle & quantum mechanics)
