Clausewitz

"The best strategy is always to be very strong; first in general, and then at the decisive point. . . There is no higher and simpler law of strategy than that of keeping one's forces concentrated."

Herr Wernher Braun


little poem in respect for Herr Braun's most invaluable contributions to science and to self, in an effort to procastinate reading Selim Deringil's 'Well Protected Domains'

IS SCIENCE ANOTHER MIRROR OF LIFE, OR WHAT?

Herr Braun's inventions still continue to galvanize,
Even the folks who are totally at a loss with rocket science...
I find myself carried away by this most exhilirating aerodynamic design
While a 'similar form' equally combustible erupts in the inspired mind of mine...
Images of rockets and whipped cream intertwine
Aber sehr sehr ungl├╝cklich, the beholder and master is gone
to a highly important meeting, meine lieber Herr Braun...

Invictus

INVICTUS

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul,

William Ernest Henley.

Doin notin is fun:))

I stopped in the middle of the sea
In an equal distance between back and forth
Standing here watching, as autumn took away all my energy
and encased me into this passive-observer state of wonder
Usually a place I do not like
Away from the safety of the shore or the glory of the destination.
But standing in the middle...
Not bad as it used to be
My muscles are strong, my concentration not concentrated on flight nor fight...
Bur rather on pleasure...
It wavers on sunrise, sundawn, breezes, tempests, waves and winds.
And of course lush green forests
I am gonna move soon, I know...
Just a little bit more...
Just a little bit more in bed, just a little bit more at home, just a little bit more within
Just a little bit more doin notin...
Waitin for
Many things to unfold and manifest
So many delicious things:))
