Friday Poem

Environmental & Science Education, Poetry, Arts & Environment

Ed Hessler

On this 25th day of February of 2022, Good Morning from the Center for Global Environmental Education (CGEE), Hamline University, Saint Paul, MN. This is the 56th day of the year of which 15.34% is now gone (80,640 minutes). Sunrise is at 6:57 am and sunset is at 5:54 pm; the filling of this sandwich  is 10h 57m 31s of sunlight, a lovely egg salad of a day.

Foodimentary notes that it is National Chocolate Covered Peanut Day. Their image looks as though each peanut has been hand polished. National Day announces these days for celebration:  National Toast Day, National Chili Day, National Chocolate Covered Nut Day and National Clam Chowder Day. I noticed 5 chili recipes and a list of chowder variants. Both links are good and always interesting reads.

Quote. "Catalysts are the conductors who choreograph the chemical dance that results in the formation of new structures."--Robert H. Grubbs. He shared the Nobel prize in chemistry for his research on "olefin metathesis". Here is the dance, danced. And a few facts about Grubbs and his research may be read here.

Today's poem is by Alan Shapiro.
