BACK TO THE BOOKS

It's back to school this winter (for the first time in 6 1/2 YEARS), with physics one and two. It takes me back to when I read the Tao of Physics while riding the bus to work a few years ago - a life changing experience.

I was reading it as part of my study of the use of "pattern languages" in Permaculture design, and have subsequently read several books by the author. Fritjof Capra is right at the top of my list of favorite thinkers. As a writer he has a talent for making science understandable, relevant and soul changing.

I started taking the courses at SLCC, which was rough trying to get to classes on top of work. But Quellie brought it to my attention that I can take it as an independant study!! So now I will be taking College Physics while I ride the bus!

I'm sure the text is much drier than Capra's, but it will get me into grad school...
