It was a packed day at school today.  Some staff days have a relaxed feel that means things can be tidied up and sorted and some staff days have an energy of motion and are compressed with floods of information that needs to be shared, distilled and mulled over.  Today was the latter.  But it just finished in time for me to catch the sunset on the way home.

As if to demonstrate the mechanics of the solar system the full moon was set to exact polar opposite to the sun.  The laws of motion were Newton’s and then Einstein’s but they have been studied since mankind had the sense to stare at them and think “hang on a minute?”.  Since then we have used them as our calendar for times to hunt, gather and plant our crops.  I don’t think they will replace my htc android but it is enough for me to stop the car half way up the drive, get out and stand and stare.
