May 28 2020: Life of Edges

Last night my bride fell down a flight of stairs. She’s ok, but it was scary for both of us.

This morning my grandfather undergoes heart surgery after surviving a heart attack several days ago.

Life seems to be made up of edges right now.

Day 11: The Fifth Force

Today’s poem is brought to you courtesy of this futurism article. The short version, we’ve always thought that the universe has 4 fundamental forces that basically bind everything together: gravity, electromagnetism, and both strong and weak nuclear force. Now some scientists believe they may have discovered a fifth, one that more fully explains dark matter and deepens our understanding of how the universe really works. Pretty neat stuff!
