fly the path

keep silent insecurity
hold at bay uncertainty
neither will serve well
for control is not at hand
let the mind rest
concentrate on nothing
save the day's beauty
the sweet air breathed
the caress of sunshine
or the night's mystery
the cool of dark skies
the faint light of stars
fall into sleep
wander dreams
fly the path of the wind
swim the waves of the ocean
let go...

I was watching the History Channel earlier. How William Shatner Changed the World. It was great! Funny and educating. Shatner is a clown, but still fun to watch. ;)
You've got a cell phone at one ear, an iPod at the other. You know that Blackberry is now a verb and Spam is not only canned meat. But just how did we get here? Blame William Shatner--yes, that William Shatner--Captain Kirk. We'll boldly go where few have gone before to reveal how scientists, inspired by the series, would revolutionize medicine and are surpassing the far-out vision of the future foreshadowed in Star Trek in the 1960s. From cell phones to computers to even leading-edge medical advancements, this 2-hour special explores how those sci-fi inventions have now permeated everyday life as we know it. Hosted and narrated by Shatner and based on his book, I'm Working on That, we'll meet the brightest minds of Silicon Valley and the Trek-inspired inventions that have help change the world.

I finished In the Company of a Courtesan. It's the book club novel and I enjoyed it. Not my usual fare, yet again, but actually quite fun to read. A novel set in the Renaissance Venice. The language is rich and descriptive. And the end was a surprise! :) I might have rushed through it though. Maybe I'll come back and read it again, slowly. Now, what to read next?

Tomorrow I get my skin read for the TB shot, then off to HR to fill out paperwork. I'm trying to keep the nervous flutters at bay. Why worry about anything? I should look to it as a new adventure! Yeah, that's it. ;)
