REFLECTIONS ON A PUDDLE

One must have a reason for reflection — an eye to admire variations. And only so many days can fulfill a day — in which one can be close to that April sky — with sight of it beneath. This requires an understanding: A reason without, an inward nature, a spontaneous glance.

Happy Birthday Carl!


He would have been 79 today.

Carl Sagan was one of the first Miller Fellows at UC Berkeley back in 1960.  The program is designed to help young visionaries launch their careers in research.

Happy birthday Carl. We miss you, but you live on in your words and our minds.
