Earth
It’s at most a medium sized planet with a lot of humans
Billions of them even
More humans than you are likely to run into on any other planet
And despite sharing the same star
Each one sees the world in a different light
For the most part we humans walk past each other
Seldom knowing how or what the other thinks about this or that
But every once in a while we cross paths with one of these humans
And we strike up a conversation…
And every once in a long while we find
That there is a another human who sees the world very much like we do
Has a similar ethic or aesthetic appreciation
Chases similar sparks of curiosity into the weeds of contemplation
Lighting up the conversations path like a lightning storm on a dry summer night
Ed Dyer, long time listener, contributor and conversation starter here on TWIS
Was one of those humans for me and for a lot of our TWIS family
His spark will be missed but not forgotten
As he has inspired many of us
To keep setting small fires to share our thoughts around
Add enlighten our paths as we walk this world together
Thank you Ed for being a big part of why we do
This week in science,
Coming up next…
Let’s start with some quick science news stories…
