Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

There's someone who inspires me, but I'm afraid he's no longer alive. He was a man that I would have sought out in person, would have asked to shake his hand and thank him for opening so many eyes to our world. He taught me and many others how obscure our world is, how insignificant our quarrels. How important our responsibility to be kind and help one another. He helped educate and inspire large communities, and was recognized for it.

One of the things I like about this individual is that he had a remarkable charisma. I feel that there are very few people who could blend science with poetry the way he could. This ability of his captivated millions and imparted humility, understanding, and a thirst for the unknown.

I cannot say that I don't admire others for their work. There is satisfaction to be found in hard labor, that work needs to be done, and the people that do it are nothing short of heroes. But the power to educate and inspire others ironically inspires me. I only wish I had something beyond my own creativity to give to others.

Edit in: I suppose I'll have to use my powers of creativity and innovation skills to come up with a way to shadow a dead man. For now, I'll settle on reading(the rest of) his books. There is nothing that says I cannot have more than one source of inspiration. I'll strive to be like him, but I'll keep my eyes open for another charismatic opener-of-eyes.

I might have to look for another source of inspiration for my mission. But for now, Carl Sagan is the man that inspires me.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
