Two years ago, I was spending some time on the internet (to be honest, as I do everyday). I came across the most magnificent collection of portraits photographs by Kevin Horan, published in the Guardian. This was before the Goat of the Day blog, perhaps even before I thought about specializing in goat photography and understanding the connection between positive vibes and goats. I was totally inspired, and many people have shared these photographs with me since. One of the best parts about starting Goat of the Day is that people share the goats they come across in their lives or on the internet with me. So, today’s goat of the day comes courtesy of Kevin Horan and the Guardian. I hope that you all find inspiration somewhere this weekend.
Today is the 182nd day of the year, so we are halfway through! Time really goes by quite quickly sometimes – take some time to reflect on all that you have experienced and accomplished so far this year – and perhaps revisit and reimagine resolutions and goals you set for yourself 182 days ago and make new ones for the next 182 days ahead.
Think of all the things that we have discovered in the past decade. We (as in human society) sent a craft to photograph the planet Pluto. We discovered earth-like planets orbiting a nearby dwarf star. There are so many applications that make our lives easier and put the world at our fingertips. We essentially live with pocket computers. We have made incredible advancements in gene therapy and made strides to understand the effect that gut bacteria has on our overall health. Just imagine what more there is to discover and what amazing things the future will bring.
Stay curious. Human imagination has led to the discovery of many amazing things, put a man on the moon and eradicated deadly diseases. The possibilities are endless, and it is never too late to learn something new!
Dream big and dream often. If your dream doesn’t pan out, you can always dream of something else. The adventure is the best part anyway.
Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Its value is usually abbreviated to 3.14159; however, as an irrational number, Pi goes on infinitely. An irrational number is a number that cannot be made into a fraction. Pi is irrational, but without it we would have no idea how to calculate things like the size of the world or how much flour should be used to make a perfect twelve-inch pizza. If an idea seems irrational to you, perhaps it might still be possible. Perhaps, like Pi, the world is full of infinite seemingly irrational possibilities. What is irrational today may revolutionize tomorrow.
