“Toutes les choses, c’est du rythme”
(Everything is rhythm)
According to the Malinke from West Africa, everything has rhythm (foli) in life: from the words we speak to the most menial tasks we do in our everyday routine. They may not be far from the truth: physicists now explain the universe as a symphony of vibrating strings (see String Theory) and Physics as nothing but the laws of harmony that you can write on vibrating strings; we are nothing but melodies. What a fun way to approach life! And this is my wish to you for 2012: May you find music, rhythm, and joy in everything you do.
Happy New Year!
