Springtime Musings

I have been checking out the springtime flowers along Cedar Street.

It seems they are earlier than elsewhere in town because they are further inland and more protected from the storm winds from the south.

This little cluster I found in Otis Johnson Park.

While I walk I often ponder things. There are two photos that recently appeared on the Astronomy Photo of the Day website. The above photo was take by the Hubble Telescope of two galaxies tearing each other apart.

And this photo is of the new CERN cyclotron which will soon tear subatomic particles apart. What amazes me is how come we humans seem to be located right in the middle between the very large and the very small. Anyway, that's one of the things I like to ponder as I walk along.

  1. Isn't that a question of perception? Wouldn't we see bigger things and smaller things whatever size we were and therefore see ourselves as being in the middle?
    Ummmm...not sure. I need to get out for a walk to ponder that one!
