It’s Time for Reading

The running around, stress, parties, families are past now. Christmas was a couple of days ago.

Along with taking time for reflection about the past year and future year this week, I like to read. Something that will stretch me a little.

This year I’m finishing Walter Issacson’s biography of Albert Einstein. He’s returning me to the reasoning behind Special Relativity, General Relativity, the universal law of gravitation. And the beginnings of quantum theory.

Cool stuff.

It is not a bad thing for everyone to learn some science. Plus he had an interesting life.

Reading every day is a good thing. If you are not in the habit, begin picking up something to read at a set time every day. Read fiction and non-fiction. Science, philosophy, history, biography. I’m partial to detective novels and murder mysteries. These are habits I formed at least by age 10. And continue until today.

Curiosity may have killed the cat, but curiosity makes us grow.
