On Relativity

From where I stood the Earth was flat,
the stars were up, the grave was down.
Then I ventured to the end of the sea
and found the earth was round.
Now which way is up and down?

Ah, north and south, it saves the day.
Each one I count as the sun goes down.
Then I sat and pondered the heavens
and found it not the sun but I who go ’round.
The Earth has let me down.

The powerful sun will guide my way.
It orchestrates the planet’s dance.
But I hitched a ride through the Milky Way
and found the sun hardly deserves a glance
Now who directs the dance?

Deeper I traveled into space,
searching for the anchored place,
a place that points me up and down,
a place all things must go around,
A signpost in the vast expanse:
“This place directs the dance.”

  1. Awesome blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any ideas? Cheers!


    1. Thanks, I would definitely suggest going with a free blog to give it a test run. If you find you really like it, are good about posting (which I have not been), and have started to get a following you can always switch. It’s a little bit inconvenient, to move and redirect people but it can be done. However, if you are determined to stick with it and promote it, it may be easier to just start with your own site. (You can buy a domain and park it with a free hosting service to start.) I have used GoDaddy (http://www.godaddy.com) to get my own domain for a business site I have. If you create and account and use the promo code WOWLISAWEB when you place your first order you will get a discount. I also use 000WebHost to host my site. They have a free hosting plan and a paid option. http://www.000webhost.com/762279.html In summary, it really depends on how committed you are to blogging. Best of luck.
