The Butterfly Effect
I am at Mom's... writing Saturday's blog late. I didn't think I would get to blog today. Unfortunately I am Dallas for health issues...another reason I was not in Denver. Spent the morning at our Doctor's office...but am back at Moms. We were blessed Carol is housesitting the dogs. Don't know what I would do with out her.
Have you read about the Butterfly Effect? Constantly in my blog I write about smiling at someone you don't know during the day. WHY? It relates to the Butterfly Effect.
According to Wikipedia...
"In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions; where a small change at one place in a nonlinear system can result in large differences to a later state. For example, the presence or absence of a butterfly flapping its wings could lead to creation or absence of a hurricane.
Although the butterfly effect may appear to be an esoteric and unusual behavior, it is exhibited by very simple systems: for example, a ball placed at the crest of a hill might roll into any of several valleys depending on slight differences in initial position.
The term "butterfly effect" itself is related to the meteorological work of Edward Lorenz, who popularized the term.
The butterfly effect is a common trope in fiction when presenting scenarios involving time travel and with "what if" cases where one storyline diverges at the moment of a seemingly minor event resulting in two significantly different outcomes."
Now that you made it through that scientific explanation... see if you can find the book, " The Butterfly Effect" by Andy Andrews. It addresses WHY your life matters. One smile can change someone's day... and how they react to things happening that day change their lives and those changes affect the lives of others... It continues no different than throwing a rock in the water and watching the waves expand and circle out. But with the butterfly effect it never ends... the waves keep going for eternity. The book covers some of those happenings in American history to serve as examples that have created the life we live today and how drastically different our lives would have been with out one single motion of one person. It is a short read of about 15 minutes...but worth one book to share in the family and pass on to friends.
The Book is $7.95 on Amazon. Here is a link to The Butterfly Effect by Andy Andrews.
Andy does other writing and sharing on his website. You might visit that as well. Andy Andrews on the Web
On the heavy side of our lives... the trees are dying in east Texas. As we drove in this morning from the woods of east Texas, trees are dying everywhere. We are in desperate need of rain. Out where Debbie Lincoln lives west of Fort Worth, cattle are dropping dead everywhere. We fortunately have more trees where we are and it has not hit here that bad. Texas needs rain...we are all praying.
