Where Does It All Begin?

In computers all our options are based on using 1 or nothing, a 1 -- or a nothing -- and yet, there seems to be an infinity of useful permutations and a million new programs per year to provide us with an abundance of riches --

  • for pleasure,
  • socialising,
  • and business --- all conceived from using a unique foundation of a 1 and a nothing.

An artist only has 3 colors to work with but s/he can shade them, mix them and match them and reverse them until the imitation is twice as glorious as the original and a lonely soul is satisfied to gaze upon them.

Mozart only had 7 notes to peck and pound on, but his arrangements of those 7 notes will live on forever.

An accountant knows there are only 10 digits to work with; 1 through zero -- or zero through 9 if you prefer, but when s/he gets through adding and subtracting, the balance sheet will be a masterpiece of accuracy.

Alphabets usually have less than 100 letters and punctuation marks, but with them and because of them the words of Homer still live and all the wisdom of the ages can come alive and charge our spiritual batteries anew.

The parts and participles of creation's bloom may be lowly in heart; humble and meek in their basic appearance, but once we learn them and once we perceive a glimmer of their brilliance, we can compose and organize whole worlds
Yea, our writers, our poets and our intellectuals can compose entire worlds without end.

My desk is right in front of a big plate glass door that looks off into a valley.  Deer come up to the window sometimes, and birds flutter my way to say "Hello" on their way to work.  I can write here, and read -- with no interruptions most of the time.  But one night I was reading away when suddenly I saw this little hand reach up and begin opening my plate glass door. 

All I could see was the little hand, nudge, nudge, nudge.  That little hand was straining real hard, but the big, heavy door was barely sliding an inch.  For me, an inch was a wedge gone too far.  While I loved to go out and play with furry little critters, I drew the terms of endearment closed at my doors. 

Therefore, I stood up, pulled the door shut, and locked it.  Then I glanced down into the forlorn little face of Richard the Little Lion-hearted Raccoon.  He waited patiently for me to go fetch my camera, turn it on, warm it up, and snap his picture.  Then he reached up and tried once more to open up the door of communications with me. 

His efforts were rewarded with a ripe turnip and he has returned many times.  The last time I saw Little Richard he weighed about 30 pounds.  Any time I leave the door unlocked he nudges it open with one firm push and races up into my lap.  In a matter of minutes he is snoring away, safe and sound for the rest of the night.
