I just walk outside and feel like my eyes feast on that color. Aren't you glad its Wednesday. Aren't you glad that the election is almost over? I have a friend who said that she wasn't going to be on Face Book until after the election and then she ended it with Peace Man. I still laugh about it. I just hope everyone can go back to being friends as soon as its over. Do you know what a paradigm shift is? I have thought lots about this election and the world in general. I read this quote and I think it explains what we are seeing in our society.
"In 1962, Thomas Kuhn wrote The Structure of Scientific Revolution, and fathered, defined and popularized the concept of "paradigm shift" Kuhn argues that scientific advancement is not evolutionary, but rather is a "series of peaceful interludes punctuated by intellectually violent revolutions", and in those revolutions "one conceptual world view is replaced by another".
Think of a Paradigm Shift as a change from one way of thinking to another. It's a revolution, a transformation, a sort of metamorphosis. It just does not happen, but rather it is driven by agents of change..."
Like some of us saw from the era of the 50s to the changes that happened in the 60s and 70s. Now we are going though another one. Just as we never went back to the way it was after the 60s I think we will look back at 2016 as a year as every bit as life changing as November 22, 1963 when Huxley died at 5:20pm, London time, on 22 November 1963. About ten minutes later, CS Lewis died. Just under an hour after that, of course, JFK was murdered in Dallas. Life in the balance.
Change begins with ourselves. Doing the right thing. Taking responsibility for ourselves.
This is what happens when I get sick, I think too much. Aw well, there it is for what its worth.
I am glad I have read the last chapter in the the Book. We do win. I hope you have a lovely day,
