The image that’s displayed when Cowbird fails…

Just back yesterday from a week in St. Louis at the 3rd Space Conference, and I’m brimming with ideas for things I want to write about:

Men Who Wear Scarves and Cry in Public

What’s it like for birds to have monocular, binocular, and dual vision, all at the same time? How does the brain process?

The origin of “putting chin to knee,” an alta kocher doing chi gung

The importance–actually, the primacy–of being kind, and how to apply that to politics

Going from STEM to STEAM: why threading the arts back into the entire curriculum, especially the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math curricula, is essential to education now

I don’t feel like I have the patience to complete even a paragraph about any of these topics, but I wanted to make the list before they slide away…
