I actually first learned about chaos theory
watching Jurassic Park—
intrigued by Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm
explaining that whole butterfly flapping its wings
on one side of the world
causing a storm on the other side of the world idea.
Of course, that’s a faith affirmation I make—
that in and through our attitudes and actions,
we shape a reality
far more extensively than we could possibly ever know.
