Einstein couldnt bear the notion that God could create a
universe in which some things were forever unknowable.
Moreover, the idea of action at a distance-that one part-
icle could instantaneously influence another trillions of
miles away-was a stark violation of the special theory
of relativity. This expressly decreed that nothing could
out race the speed of light and yet here were physicists
insisting that, somehow, at the subatomic level, information
could. (No one, incidentally, has ever explained how the
particles achieve this feat. Scientists have dealt with this
problem, according to the physicist Yakir Aharanov, "by
not thinking about it.")

Tonight is one of those nights when I want to scream and cry and pummel my pillow to a pulp.
Today I was remembered by one of my dear Southern Utah hiking companions.
Its still so incredibly painful to remember what I have lost.
Tomorrow will be better.
The sun will shine. I will meet new people at The Grill. I'll pack boxes here at home. And I'll keep hoping for a promising future.
But tonight Im clenching my teeth and trying not to wake My Builder with my grief.
