Behold, close-ups of the sand from around the cosmos

Microscopic photography exposes the beauty and strangeness of sand. Water wave action produces a startling variety of sand grains. That stuff between your toes is a lot more interesting than you might think. None We typically refer to grains of sand as uncountable tiny bits of rock whose most interesting characteristic is just how many of them there are. Like stars in the sky. We do them a disservice. Even the Oxford Dictionary defines them nearly as "A loose granular substance, typically pal...

What to Pack for Japan in Winter

In short order I am heading off on a trip to Hokkaido – Japan’s most northerly main island. I have been warned by the group that invited me to be prepared for chilly temperatures.

Hokkaido, which is at the same latitude as Toronto, is famous for its spectacular mountain scenery, volcanoes, natural hot springs and ski areas.
