The physics of standing a Christmas Tree seem to include chaos math, quantum relationships and a great deal of Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle.

- You can know the level of the base, but not the top.
- You can level the top of tree, but you won't know if the base is crooked.
- The placement of the legs changes the gravitational plane of the floor, no matter what way you turn the stand the tree is crooked.
- While the speed of light is constant, calculating the distribution of that light appears to be distorted by dark matter.
- The Christmas lights, like protons, flick in and out of existence, possibly shifting into other spatial dimensions.
- The cat has a equal chance of living or being killed as he gets in my way
- And as much Christmas cheer as a tree bring, I find myself overwhelmed by dark energy while I try to set up the tree.

May you have a high probability of a Merry Christmas.

Mundane Journeys through an Amazing World begins with Interstate 80. Not the most engaging topic, I know, but when you think about it, I-80 runs all the way across the North American continent linking San Francisco and New York. It's not just a ribbon of asphalt, it's a portal to far away, almost magical places.

My visits to major cities like Tokyo, London and Washington DC have been business affairs. I haven't rode a lot of roller coasters or ridden in open air buses, but I have visited with senators, bought yams from the back of a truck and barely escaped complete embarrassment when I was introduced to Matt Wiener in Vegas.

As I wrote the book I realized that over the years exotic, distant places have become more like the mundane places I've called home. But, as it turns out, there really aren't any mundane places, only mundane ways of looking at things.
