the metamorphosis edition
so much has happened since my last post. i was on a mountain. i was on another mountain. i lost a dear, dear friend to cancer. indeed, i feel a bit like an entirely new person since then. the changes are perhaps subtle to the naked eye, but enough to shift my orbit completely. just a few days ago, nasa cameras caught a brilliant meteor break up into a fireball, while the remnant of an empty rocket booster slowly makes its way through the sky in the background. (video here) that meteor is the old me burning away in a final, spectacular burst. the new me is that incandescent abandoned rocket left, not empty but open. open and ready to be filled with the potential of things to come.
