"...good news of great joy to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David..."

Gone are the days when a man can go on a vacation and come back feeling ready to "start over." Our modern technology has insured that we are always (and maybe only) Running to Stand Still. In evolutionary biology, it's called the Red Queen Hypothesis. The Red Queen is the one in Alice in Wonderland who always yells, "After her! After her!" and runs and runs, but slips on all the cards and so never actually goes anywhere. Or, in Samuel Beckett's play Waiting for Godot, the characters say "Let's go!" all the time but they never actually go anywhere. however, i realize i'm in a cyber community of giants! thank you for adding so many great thoughts and discussions. i'm thinking about how to respond to all of them, but then worrying about how i'll actually get the work done that i need to in order to have enough time to blog my thoughts! gak! but for now i'll just say, you guys rock!
