Random thoughts..

Could it be me or is anyone faced with moments like you feel you would slap yourself to go back to #asyouwere as a result of the brain that can suddenly lift you to places you only dream of…snap back to reality!
There she is on the opposite side of the road waiting for her prince to i am…coming in your direction…
A bright sunny day awakens and you get to work albeit late..and as if to make it look like we spent the night together you don’t say hello; i don’t know whether am the only one who takes offense in a snobish individual..i really detest such behavior. A person who angers you conquers you- that is the plain truth and there is no other way to put it. Being the kind of person who does not like confrontation, i keep quiet and simmer inside..which tears me apart….but the moment i lay it down in this form( writing) i feel a whole lot being baptized and being born again.
I have never been perfect, and that’s why i always profusely apologize if someone believes i have wronged, it doesn’t go on to say that because i have apologized i don’t have an opinion about you, i guess its just the hearts of men…its said its like a forest and you never get to know really whats in there..could be a porcupine in that forest- that when cornered shoots straight arrows in every direction. Figuratively the forest inside the heart’s of men (me included) could have a mongoose a creature that can really fart a stench like no other…#justsaying
Important lesson to learn, always treat the other person kinder because he might be undergoing a rougher patch than you.


The comet’s core, or nucleus, was a conglomeration of frozen water, carbon monoxide, methane gas, and jagged blocks of metallic rocks. It might accurately be described as a dirty snowball hurled through space by the hand of God. But as it whirled past the sun and swung around on its return path beyond the outer reaches of the solar system, the solar radiation reacted with its nucleus and a metamorphosis took place. The ugly duckling soon became a thing of beauty.

As it began to absorb the sun’s heat and ultraviolet light, a long comma formed that slowly grew into an enormous luminous blue tail that curved and stretched out behind the nucleus for a distance of 90 million miles. A shorter, white dust tail more than one million miles wide also materialized and curled out on the sides of the larger tail like the fins of a fish.

Each time the comet passed the sun, it lost more of its ice and its nucleus diminished. Eventually, in another 200 million years, it would lose all its ice and break up into a cloud of dust and become a series of small meteorites. This comet, however, would never orbit outside the solar system or pass around the sun again. It would not be allowed a slow, cold death far out in the blackness of space. Within a few short minutes, its life would be snuffed out. But on this, its latest orbit, the comet passed within 900,000 miles of Jupiter, whose great gravitational force veered it off on a collision course with the third planet from the sun, a planet its inhabitants called Earth.

Plunging into Earth’s atmosphere at 130,000 miles an hour on a forty-five-degree angle, its speed ever-increasing with the gravitational pull, the comet created a brilliant luminescent bow shock as its ten-mile-wide, four-billion-ton mass began to break into fragments due to friction from its great speed. Seven seconds later, the misshapen comet, having become a blinding fireball, smashed onto Earth’s surface with horrendous effect. The immediate result from the explosive release of kinetic energy upon impact was to gouge out a massive cavity twice the size of the island of Hawaii as it vaporized and displaced a gigantic volume of water and soil.
