CMU Crosswalk- Autumn Afternoon

When Steve drives I have so much fun taking pictures. It was magnificent light through the colored leaves, the students crossing Forbes Ave.  We were driving down Morewood and there was the sinking sun making the leaves vibrant. Too bad the windshield wasn’t clean!

Great to be the passenger
A perfect October afternoon. If only this weather could stay!

CMU Campus Lights and Shadows at Night

Waiting for Steve to pick me up in the turnaround, I saw the pattern on the concrete.  I had just viewed Waiting for Superman. I was in a good discussion group after the film.  You can read an editorial piece by Tony Norman from the Post-Gazette my friend V told me about. Lots to think about.  There wasn’t much in it that was hopeful or positive, especially when it comes to public education.  In fact , it was downright depressing to me.There are a ton of reviews at Rotten Tomatoes if you want to see the splats, too…. But getting back to the patterns of light and shadow on the sidewalk while I was waiting for Steve….

Shadow patterns on the concrete from the lights at CMU.
Looked like a good target for a spaceship landing.

Eddington Quote on Carnegie Mellon Wall

Went to see our neighbor, Terry Collins, receive a Heinz Chair for Green Chemistry at Carnegie Mellon. Teresa Heinz and her sons were there and it was a nice ceremony.  Plus, he received an actual chair which was red, in addition to the prestigious post! When I left the award reception I passed by a slope of azaleas in full bloom and tried to make sense of the quote on the wall in front of me.  Sir Arthur Eddington.  You will probably figure it out much quicker than I did. If you want further thought on topic of entropy click on word.

Hint: You have to start at the end and read backwards. Something to think about.
