It's begun :)

The spring, that is!

The mobile phone camera isn't my best. But there's a wee tree there - with green leaves on :)
I liked the silvery play of light in the water. And then Corto decided he wanted in, too.

According to the World Economic Forum, as reported by BBC, Denmark now heads the "Networked Readiness Index" - that is, we're now "regarded as the world leader in technological advancement".


Here's the top 10 (previous place):

1: Denmark (3)
2: Sweden (8)
3: Singapore (2)
4: Finland (5)
5: Switzerland (9)
6: Netherlands (12)
7: US (1)
8: Iceland (4)
9: UK (10)
10: Norway (13)

Now, ain't that something.

Taxiing in Schiphol in March

Taxiing in a silver tube
moving over wet concrete
between red, blue and green lights
of which I understand nothing

Once more on the move
from where I am
to somewhere I am supposed to be

For a while

But here and now I'm suddenly thinking
like a ray of sun appearing through clouds
or a temple bell turning over silence
what for?

It's not that I don't know
or even doubt that I should
but more a -
- loss of certainty

Which makes me momentarily feel lost
out here between red, blue and green lights
of which I understand nothing
but that I am going there

As I always do.

Quick and dirty IQ

I like the term "dirty IQ" ;)


Your IQ Is 120

Your Logical Intelligence is Below Average
Your Verbal Intelligence is Genius
Your Mathematical Intelligence is Exceptional
Your General Knowledge is Above Average

I'm a little disappointed by my logical score. But hey - it's Monday morning and one that started by me having to do the spare tyre exercise...

I'm rather disappointed that I couldn't see my answers vs the right ones, though. Would make getting an Einstein good score on 2nd attempt a little easy, perhaps.

(as usual, I picked this up at az's)
