Genetique Tackling


I guess when scientists finish all this Gene Mapping …

they will make a fortune selling the maps at gas stations.


note: making Gene Maps is probably really difficult; they must be really really really small.

double note: Gene Maps don’t fold: they twist.

triple note: scientists could have used: researching, investigating, unravelling, analyzing, probing, studying …
but they chose mapping.
They must think they are explorers or something.

quadruple note: the photo has nothing to do with Gene mapping … I just don’t have any good photos of that stuff. I blame zoom lens technology.

quintuple note: isn’t anyone working on the other GPS: Genome Positioning System?


Today #58

Today flew by like a penguin.

I’m A Nostalgician


I’m not good at explaining where things are.

I’m much better at explaining where things were.

“It was right next to where the old police station used to be … before they moved to a new building beside where that 7-11 was before it burnt down.”


note: old maps just seem so much better.  … useless, but better.

double note: “Does God have blonde, brown, black, or red hair?”  That is my Sunday school question of the week.


Today #10

Today is going to be like an ice cream cone … gone before I know it.

Local Knowledge Necessary

It is not down in any map; true places never are.  ~Herman Melville


Memories in a wink, of other times;

My pockets full of expectations, circumstances, and chances.

In my thoughts a thousand smiles, dreams to be true for the taking.



I Saw a Man
  I saw a man pursuing the horizon;
Round and round they sped.
I was disturbed at this;
I accosted the man.
“It is futile,” I said,
“You can never — “”You lie,” he cried,
And ran on.

Stephen Crane
