Daily Note on the Daily Create
My leap took me to the Palace of Tau in Reims, France. The palace was named for its design— the shape of the Greek letter Tau, or T.
- Proper time in relativity
- Absorption of sunlight
- Notation for Time, to not confuse with temperature
In addition, St Francis of Assisi considered the Greek Letter, a cross that represented life and redemption. If you look at pictures of St Francis, you’ll notice the the three knots on his belt– which represent his tau, his three important beliefs: brother love, penance, and peace. He was the first to share a nativity scene, to bring the community together in love with God’s created world, where creatures are also revered.
In my own idea of a creator, I find St Francis to be the closest to what such a being would be, one whose creation places every bit of life as important and to be cared for in peace and brotherhood. All creatures and even the plants.
Ideas I gleaned from St Francis and Tao:
- brotherly love, penance, peace
- Brother Sun, Sister Moon, Brother Wind, Water, Fire, and Earth
I took those ideas and wrote them around the Letter T– with the main focus of physics and St Francis on the left, with a connection or comment on the right.
I included St Francis’s three knots on the left turned to crosses on the right.
That became my daily create, but I took the right side of the DC poem and rewrote it– reorganizing, adding to, and revising it to show how we shine our light continuously [as in sunlight and relativity] within the forces of nature and without force or malice, but with brotherly love to bring peace and unity to our communities.
T Tau is Life
Rain or Sun
Day or Night
in the speed we light, we shine
constants we cherish, we challenge
not as absorbed,
not as a moment of force,
yet as ever constant
as ever vital
simply in brotherly love,
Love and Care,
Penance as Responsibility,
Peace for Earth,
we speed, we urge
through storm or salvo
