An odd thought occured to me today at work:
When you think about it, the light responsible for making a photograph has travelled roughly 93 million miles from the sun before bouncing around the landscape like a pinball and then entering you camera lens. That photograph of the loved one you carry around in your wallet is really the memory of something that started 94 million miles away and is made out of the Sun’s fire.
Well I thought it was interesting. It’s a common phenomena amongst adults to remove cause from effect and odd little thoughts like that help me to remember that the causal factor of a state of affairs is often something far removed from the effect but still significant. Sorry if that’s a bit pseudo intellectual but I’ve had a lot of time on my hands today.
