Ground

A new Walk

Yesterday, my daughter turned 12 weeks old and this is the first moment that I have had to sit a write about the experience. What a wild ride it’s been so far! As I sit on a plane bound for a conference in a far off city, I reflect on my feelings related to her over the past, present, and… Read more →

A Binary Meditation

A Binary Meditation

Right and Left… perhaps the first philosophical thought of George Boole involved these two infinite directions… At some point we decide that these two choices were all that there was.

Wikipedia, while being a bit more positive, still had a negative criminal aspect that I don’t agree with.
