Jumping Into 2017

Saturday,  12/31/16  04:12 PM

Happy New Year, everyone! 
I hope 2017 is amazing for you.

I haven't been been posting much, sorry ... maybe I'll start again soon.  This summer I had some changes which made me quite busy - I am now CTO of InTouch Health, yay! - and yeah, I got tired of all the political wrangling, and stopped blogging.  Per my blogging history this is about the 6th time I've done that in the last 13 years, and each time I started again, so stay tuned.

I wanted to share this amazing picture.
This is the international space station, showing two Russian spacecraft docked.
Below is Earth, with various Earthian cities lit up at night, and lighting flashing in the clouds.
This is a real picture, not Star Wars XX.

Looking at those tiny little lights way down there gives me goosebumps.
Think of all the Earthians down there, each living their lives with all their complexity.
I hope they all - we all - have a wonderful year.
