My Inner Geek

Walking in the soft rain this morning.  Lots of protection from the overhanging trees.

I admit it  – I am a Trekkie.  I have been since I was 12 years old and raced home to watch the original in re-runs after school.

I grew up believing in and influenced by the idea’s and beliefs of Gene Roddenberry.  Watching Star Trek was my entry into everything else Science Fiction.  I read my first Sci-Fi Novel at 13 – Infinite Worlds of Maybe by Lester Del Rey; and continued on to Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, Arthur Clarke, Gordon R. Dickson, David Brin and Spider Robinson – just to name a few!

Today I watched the new movie; Star Trek – Into the Darkness.  My Inner Geek is satisfied.

Watching a good movie is a great way to start a long weekend.  Especially after some knitting, breakfast, grocery shopping and a walk in the rain.

The rain was just falling softly as we walked around Diver’s Lake this morning.  There were lots of birds and flowers to be seen.  In most places the trees offered protection from the rain; aside from the occasional big drips.

The reeds are growing tall and green around Divers Lake.  They are fronted in many places by the wild lily pads and flowers.  Iris grow amongst them and the rushes stand tall through the year.

The wood ducks hardly looked real as they paddled through the reeds.  They are so colourful.

Did you know that holly trees flower?  I suppose that they must, in order to produce the berries.  I had never noticed their flowers before!

Knitting is another way of satisfying my Inner Geek.  It has a certain symmetry that allows me to understand numbers and their connection to creation.  In nature, in life and in knitting numbers rule!

Live Long and Prosper
