Day 3.67 !
There is a lot going on.
Consider the algorithm of one person's sphere of circumstance as it radiates outward into space. Multiply that by six billion.
For good measure toss in cellular communication, cloud data transfer, high frequency micro waves and electronic transmissions.

A real mess.

Personally, I try to add one exclamation point to every day. That might be a totally focused and intense work out, it might be one successful phone conversation, it could be creating a safer and more secure environment for someone in pain or it might be resisting the urge to consume.
Lord knows that of late there has been a plethora of opportunity to pick one of the above and get a touch closer to the truth. That truth:
99% of the time when we say we are doing our best, we lie.
