Thought of the day

The things you think are farthest are in reality closer than you think

  1. yup, even in our visual perception this is true. for instance, a water bottle 500 feet away may be perceived as 300 feet away by a runner running towards it! psych studies show such to be true after asking various runners how far their endpoint seemed when there was or was not a water bottle, for instance. when there was not a water bottle, the endpoint seemed closer than when there was a water bottle!

    • Indeed though this refers to something I’ll be talking about later

  2. Hello from Long Island!

    Love your new blog, Joe. Very elegant. I had a wordpress blog once, but it was too technical for me so I had to go back to good old reliable blogger.

  3. Hello Julie, glad you found your way here :)…wordpress has a few more options that blogger does not, hence my apperance here. Thank you, I’m hoping to make improvements on the blog design soon, I have a friend who is “Mercedarianing my blog”

  4. Absolutely. Reminds me of something St. John of the Cross might have said…
