The other day I was bemoaning the fact that my new red car doesn't have a CD player in it while my older car had at least a tape player in it (A tape player!?! I know, right?) And I said, I missed listening to Books on Tape like I used to, that I had listened to a whole series on Quantum Physics when I was doing research for 'Death and Politics at the End of the World.' My boss said, "Danette did you just hear yourself? *repeats sentence* I couldn't really fix it without sounding geeky and like a nerd. Sorry. Perhaps I should have gone into science and become a total nerd. Instead I've come at it late in life and incorporate bits and pieces in my writing. And now I am going to share it with you!!!
I came across this video on another blog but it was on YouTube and wanted to share it.
It features Morgan Freeman, Stephen Hawkings, Michio Kaku, Brian Cox, and the awesome brainiac Richard Feynman.
"The Quantum theory offers a very different explanation of our world" ~Michio Kaku
"I've got to stop somewhere. I'll leave you something to imagine" ~Richard Feyman
(That is where 'Death and Politics' steps in for me!)
Small update: Finally! heard from the literary journal. No go. Rejection letter finally came although I'd long ago given up on them. On to other things. I've got the "2011 Writer's Market" sitting in my lap and today I am having my belated Labor Day holiday! (WOOHOO) So after an INCREDIBLY rough personal week I plan to sit out in the beautiful Colorado sunshine (winter comes much to soon at this point!!!! I am cramming in the sunshine!) and getting some writing done and maybe treating myself to lunch out!
