...just been dormant.
Have been reading a good book: Voyage to the Great Attractor by Alan Dressler. I have read a couple of cosmology books in the past with some difficulty. This book has helped me [proto-}crystallize some of those hard to grasp concepts and realities. Dressler exhibits a poetic touch which I like when he describes different aspects of the world he interacts; he also has a knack for offering analogies to simpler, more everyday events or things that I am able to deliberate with a sense of understanding.
gotta tell ya I am wanting of clear, dark skies. enough already!
