So last night we're driving home from services, reflecting on the message of compassion and joy that we'd just heard. From the back seat, my little Bear asks:
Has the Earth existed for more than a googolplex seconds? Or less?Let no one tell you that science and wonder are at odds.
(And don't ask me how big a googolplex is. That's what Google is good for.)
This picture of my forsythia in its holiday finery is totally cheating; I took it a few days ago before the snow got washed away. For Christmas Eve, we had warm rains.
