As kingfishes catch fire, dragonflies draw flame;
   As tumbled over rim in roundy wells
   Stones ring; like each tucked string tells, each hung bell's
Bow swung finds tongue to fling out broad its name;
Each mortal thing does one thing and the same;
   Deals out that being indoors each one dwells;
   Selves -- goes itself; myself it speaks and spells,
Crying What I do is me, for that I came.

I say more; the just man justices;
   Keeps grace: that keeps all his goings graces
Acts in God's eye what in God's eye he is --
   Christ. For Christ plays in ten thousand places,
Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his
   To the Father through the feature of men's faces.

By G. M. Hopkins

For a man of God now fully in God, a man I knew and respected from afar, now faraway, yet closer than I know, his poetry unknown to my myopic; for him, who knows where Christ plays better than I do.

Give a talented European illustrator a pencil, and he will tell you the Tale of All Tales.

Placentophage sounds like a great name for a heavy metal rock group.

And from our seventh-story vantage point my lab's been watching smoke billow from somewhere near Newton... When I get home I'm gonna post pics. Does someone out there have any clue on what's going on there?

I've finished the third week of my required attachment at IBN, with 5 more to go. While it seems I've come up with a closed door so far in my efforts, I'm learning to accept the fact that 2 months is barely a blink in the calender of a researcher, so I'm happy to contribute whatever I can, shedding light on deadends.

I do wish I could set aside more time to sit down and read. I'm stuck on the second chapter of The Divine Conspiracy, and I just got one of Polkinghorne's little volumes.
