“Imaginary time is a new dimension, at right angles to ordinary, real time.”           

–Stephen Hawking

It is good today to be back to ordinary, real time. We can focus, one hopes, on the coronavirus and the people in Nashville and the refugee challenge and our warming planet and matters of justice and opportunity. And it would be nice as we shift to the next super whatever and debate stages that these issues be the center of discussion.

Read yesterday’s Thought. Thought of the Day (TOD) is selected by Rick Larios, Monday-Friday, minus public holidays and an arbitrarily chosen summer vacation. Saturday and Sunday, Stacey will be selecting TODs from the archives of past postings. Often, but not always, a comment comes with the quote. TOD originates as a personal email list-sharing and is further shared here with permission. A poem appears in full on Fridays; the copyright belongs to the poet and/or publisher. Buy poetry you like. It will be good for you, good for poets, and order from your local community bookstore and it will be good for them too.
