Amazing short story

Wow it's been a while since I posted to lj.  I sometimes forget that its an actual place where people who aren't professional authors share their thoughts, but then my sister posts and I remember that other people use it for different things than following authors.

Anyways, I just read an amazing short story on and figured I would share it here.  Even if no one reads it, I will be happier for having tried to share it.  The story is The Final Now by Gregory Benford and Rick Perry.    An amazing look at religion with a scientific outlook about the end of the universe. Simply amazing even as half of it went over my head.

I am currently in Costa Rica teaching Science in English to elementary age students at a bilingual school in La Fortuna, a touristy town in the north of Costa Rica.  My blog for my time in Costa Rica is   I can't promise interesting posts, but they will be more than the twice a year I write here.

After watching the video, please go sign the petition to stop Ken Starr from divorcing 18,000 happy couples.

Also appropriate, is the pie chart outlining the consequences of legalizing same-sex marriages, which I have personally seen in Massachusetts.

I figure since I'm on livejournal often I might as well use it for something. Since a few of my favorite author's either have their blog's on here or mirror them here, it's a convenient place to read all of them at once.

For now I'm just going to put my word count on what I am writing, 8,107.

My goal is to write 50,000 by the end of the semester, and hopefully every time I see this I will stop checking my friend's page and actually write. Sort of my reaction in my own life to Robin Hobb's rant about blogs. Clearly I don't have a blog here, but equally bad if not worse is incessantly checking other people's blogs.
