Shine on

As we let our light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission
to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence actually liberates others.
(Marianne Willamson)

May there always be some shining light in your life! :-)

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.

Superhydrophobic Droplet Logic
(which means that Beck will have to think of a new name for his next album)
Smart Drops

Tiny drops of water can be used for basic computing. Researchers have devised a way to convert tiny drops of water into encoded digital information, building a simple computer out of just water droplets and a water-repellant surface. … using a hydrophobic surface that causes water to bead up and roll off, researchers can follow the trails of individual water droplets along paths in the surface. That predictability allowed researchers to build simple computers like a memory device that tracks the droplets and encodes them as bits of information, with drops on one track representing ones and drops on the other representing zeroes. They even demonstrated machines that can use the technology to complete basic Boolean operations.

Place I like to be when sun is coming up....

Some places have something, especially at a certain time of day. This place means magic for me, when sun came up every time I'm here. Believe me I come here regularly.

Hope you like it too, have a nice day, evening  or ?

Brielse Meer, Netherlands
