Boats cancelled. Lots of wind. Some snow. No school. Stir crazy. Went out.
To the bottom of the hill then back again, wind too strong and cold, even the icicles were growing sideways
Not really a walk, but took the photos both sides of the road and then back up the steps to my door.
There is however a lot of time to think. My various projects have stalled. World problems, economics, emotional education applied to thinking, writing, none of it has been happening. Some of you readers may find that a good thing. Some may be disappointed?
Great post today from speccy about work from Prof James C Coyne. I love the slide “train wreck” of a study. Makes me think about how often “studies” are done from the utterly stupid methodology of think of a theory – then massage what you see to fit it. Same mental perspective as colonizing countries – found another interesting post from Pieter Howes.
There are better methods, truly scientific methods, first OBSERVE, listen, hear, feel, be mindful, and theory finds its rightful place within what you discover. Like Darwin, who, according to his granddaughter Nora Barlow, said that in science:
it is a fatal fault to reason whilst observing, though so necessary beforehand and so useful afterwards (Barlow, 1958, p.159)
Don’t feel so wintry after all. Good people out there, all over this world.
