Last night during my state of serenity, I began gazing skyward, where I noticed only one visible star. I blame clouds and an abundance of urban lighting for my limited stellar view. Since that lone star was due north, I deduced that it must be the North Star.
My mind’s wheels began turning. ‘How far is the North Star from Earth?’, I wondered. It occurred to me that my inquiry could easily be resolved with my handy, dandy smartphone. I spoke into it, and it responded with a soothing female voice, "the North Star or Polaris is approximately 434 light years from Earth”.
William Shakespeare was then alive as a teenager.
It was then that I concluded that aided with some handy technology, the mind can indeed wander across the space-time continuum on a cool, peaceful night on one's front porch...if one is receptive.

Hell, the dang Republicans are more democratic than the Democrats when it comes to superdelegates.

I shot the scene of a human chessboard match from the Annual Sarasota Medieval Fair. Folks are dressed up a as characters from Feudal England and Scotland, who are, of course, at war with one another. In this scene, the English capture a Scotsman on their side of the chessboard, and force him to wear a goatskin!
