Around Work

I am still fascinated by the richness of Okinawan flora and fauna. Today at lunchtime, mainly due to the fact that all lunch options at the University include rice, noodles and so anathema to my no carbs diet, I stroll off to look at crawling things.

Down by the sea I have noticed the strangest creatures. They are fish but when they feel like it they scuttle up onto the land an eat a few crabs. I have no idea what they are but they are clearly Darwinian.

How we came from the swamp

They seem to spend their time crunching up these little Fiddler Crabs.


“Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what’s for lunch.”

As I walk back to my car, a beautiful and very large butterfly cavorts.

The Higgs boson-like particle whose discovery was announced on 4 July looks significantly more certain to exist.

Olympic badminton players face charges over lackluster matches

After work I stop off at my favorite dam, damn. There are baby Black Crowned Night Herons.

A man who is eating or lying with his wife or preparing to go to sleep in humility, thankfulness and temperance, is, by Christian standards, in an infinitely higher state than one who is listening to Bach or reading Plato in a state of pride.

The small stuff is important.
