Friday Poem

Environmental & Science Education, Poetry, Art and Environment

Edward Hessler

Hello from Saint Paul on October 2 (aka Octember, thank you Stan Laurel), the 276th day of the year which means that 75.41% of the year is gone.

Sunrise is at 7:12 am and sunset is at 5:50 pm giving us 11h 40m 37s of daylight. Right now that light is being heavily filtered by a gray sky. Those 3 minutes subtracted from the previous day are adding up or down.

Quote of the Day. Science is wild and has no homeland. -- Attributed to an Iranian philosopher (in Laura Secor, The New Yorker). True if the world was more perfect but many factors gnaw at the very idea. One example is found in this profile by Secor of Iranian materials scientist Sirous Asgari who was detained in the U.S. for 2 years and 7 months.

Today's poem is by Richard Levine.
