This is a test, a sentence for the sake of a sentence, just to see
what will come out. Will more come from my fingers on my keyboard? I'm
not thinking of anything in particular; I just can't think of anything
interesting to write. Except maybe I could talk about the fire truck
that whizzed down 10th street as I was walking to Sunnyside
station. It was going to an accident, nothing major, just some bumper
kissing, but the was a cop car there, and ambulance, and the
aforementioned fire truck, and another which was hot on the heels of
the first down 10th street. I walked by the accident, around Safeway,
instead of going directly to the train station, and I missed the c-train
as a result. Doh. But that was ok, because I just sat for a bit and
read a bit of Johnny and the bomb, by Terry Pratchett, a children's
book yes, but I spent all morning banging code and half the afternoon
doing vector calculus, so it was nice to read
something relaxing, that didn't require a lot of thinking. I got that
book from the Wee Book Inn in Kensinton, which is across the
street and down a bit from my favorite coffee shop, Higher
Ground. That's where I sat doing vector calculus; I took the
afternoon off to do so. My life is so much fun. Actually, really
understanding the math helps you understand the beauty of the
universe. Once you understand it, it's really cool. You start to see
things in different ways when you understand them, more in detail,
more depth, more the beauty of the thing. Poets might complain that
science and engineer types don't get the beauty of the universe, that
you have to be some depressed, angst filled artist to experience the
beauty of the world. But I can see so much more beauty for having done
some math and science, it's like a sort of drug that takes more
effort, but which is worth more in the end. At least to me.
Wow. I think I came up with enough ideas in that test for three
nodes! That's stream of consciousness for you.
It's not like I don't have my fair share of depression or angst either, and I'm not about to go Goth to express it, but sometimes when I solve a problem or I am able to see a surface in my head, it just makes it all go away for a bit.
I need to do stream of consciousness more often! What an uplifting euphoria I'm feeling!
