These have been hard times. The drama in Paris, another mass shooting in the US. The constant tide of poor souls washed onto european coastlines and welcomed with hatred and contempt. The fear. Oh the fear, playing it’s oldest and dirtiest trick on us all. The fear of others.

I am always surprised that, beyond those gloomy prospects, I still find comfort in what seems trivialities but are in fact bright beacons of hope.

Human nature: A hundred students laughing at my silly jokes in class. A bottle of Syrah. 

Human genius: The “kick in the discovery”. Hi resolution images of Pluto, the jets of Anceladus, a spacecraft orbiting a comet. La conférence des oiseaux.

Humanity: My kids’ surreally, beautifully quiet faces when they sleep.

Everything’s not lost.
