There’s a quote at the Denver airport, inscribed on the arches over the walkway between the main terminal and concourse A (Burma-Shave style, for those of us who remember those), that I’ve loved every time I’ve read it.  I found a chance to do something with it here, and like the reminder that I’m neither completely at sea, nor required to prove myself.

The quote, by Albert Einstein:  “Everything is determined, the beginning as well as the end, by forces over which we have no control.  It is determined for the insect, as well as for the star.  Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper.”

This piece has the quote at the top, and a variety of images of Einstein across the bottom.  The words of the quote, and old sheet music give texture to the background.

    Cool! I have also always loved that quote. I like your quote, too – …at sea…not required… love you.

    I don’t tend to think of Einstein with a smile on his face, and am loving that you chose that view of him. No need for brilliance to be somber, I guess. This piece makes me want to know the man as a man, not a genius. Thanks, dear. E
