test73a

Back in 2014 I excitedly announced the birth of a genetic fractal universe in my post “postcard from a new universe”. I then went on and blogged about spring and the joys of travel.

Why thinking is a bad idea, if you want to get somewhere good

Then, as I drive into the valley to go to work, I descend into a fog which evolves into a low hanging cloud. Continue reading Life under a giant sun
