My Year of Darwin 12/30/2014:Darwin the mystic

 Charles Darwin

"Nature, like a careful gardener, thus takes her seeds from a bed of a particular nature, and drops them in another equally well fitted for them
Charles Darwin, Origin of Species 1st edition (on Kindle)

As nice as this sounds, it belies the reality that most propagules, as Darwin would state it, are utterly destroyed. We would call this directed dispersal and it's just animals and plants exploiting each other. Sorry Darwin, hate to be a downer today. 

Cold again here. Hoping it snows soon so I can bust out the snow shoes or the cross country skis. 

Feeling like I'm decompressing. I felt crushed into a singularity yesterday. Things just weren't real.
