Brilliant and Bewildering

The world is a brilliant and bewildering place.

It's home to people who between them have invented things as diverse as the ballpoint pen, the triple lutz and the lasagne. It's home to things like water that are both literally life giving, but also capable of eroding away an entire mountain. It's home to various long-since-new media that can capture sounds, smells, sights and entire worlds. It's home to people who think exactly the same things that you think and people who think that the things you think are RIDICULOUS. It's home to a lot of stuff one person is never likely to understand, and it's home to moments that everyone will experience, if only for a short while.

The world is a brilliant and bewildering place, and it's all we've got. 

Whatever you want to do, wherever you want to take yourself, the more you understand about the world around you - how it works, who's in it, why it's ended up this way - the better you'll be able to get to where you're going. 

Or, as we like to say round here, the first step toward making more impact, is making more dots.
