Mind, consider yourself blown

I just finished watchiing a documentary originally aired on PBS but I got to watch thanks to Netflix instant streaming (ah, what an age we live in) called Between the Folds. In it, one of the people interviewed makes a statement somewhere along the lines of paper having a memory and that once a fold is made in a piece of paper, that piece of paper can no longer go back to its pre-folded state. You can try to lay it flat but it wants to go back to its folded state. From this, it is possible to make the analogy that a piece of flat paper is like the human mind. Prior to any folds or changes it is blank and is, for the most part, useless. However, once even a single fold or, for the human mind analogy, a single thought is placed into that mind, that thought can not be un-thunk (is that a word?). That thought then goes on to influence other thoughts which then in turn effects who we are as human beings. Just a little origami meets Inception mind-blowing thinking for you :)

Andrea and I went geocaching again today. On one of our caches, we passed by this. It's a smiley face carved into the stump of a tree! Smile!

Why does cotton have commercials? What next? Rayon, the synthetic of our lives?

Not what it appears...

No ladies and gents, that's no ordinary bolt you're looking at there. It's actually a geocache that Andrea and I found today!
