.



A dot is a perfect thing. It just is a..dot.

Perfect form.
Perfectly Round.
Round is natures natural form...from atoms to the heavenly spheres.

Function
Think of the dots function. One little dot signals finality..yet add one or two..and it encourages your mind to think further...

Consider this.

The dot is the smallest notation known to man..
Yet..
It has the power to bring long, awesome, beautiful and complicated words and sentences to a grinding halt.
Case in point.

Gotta love that feisty little dot.

I love what you did with that dot, how you brought it to life, only you could be so creative and think of that. Awesome!

I love that thought.

And in the "dotcom" era, we can understand the significance of it so much more.

I think the most powerful part is that it is only because of its smallness that it achieved such greatness. Humankind would not have embraced a more complicated symbol as enthusiastically. After all, ampersands serve only one purpose & thus appear far less frequently than dots.

random indeed
really not but in a way ya

and neat post.
i like the thinking.
like those posts that are not of the kvetchy nature but of the 'i can learn from anything-be it rain, tweezers, playgrounds or dots' nature.

Haven't been here in a while and when i come back I see you took your entire blog and summed it up in one dot. Yes the power of one little dot turns into an entire story. The Nimshal to this is one little person can actually change the world and not even know it.

Kind of reminds me of an old story. A kid is reading from his Chumash and he's doing a good job, but he says G-d name at the end of each verse. His dad asks why he keeps making that mistake, and he says that the "two yudin" are read as G-d's name, right?

"No", says his dad. "Two yiddin next to each other, together on the same level, that's G-d's name. One yid above the other is a 'sof pasuk' (end of the verse)"

David, a red dot hits the spot, literally. It spells target. It spells religion. If small enough, it spells clean.
