May this be our “Year of Wonders" (especially now that school has been cancelled for many of our kids until Fall, GULP). I need to tattoo this to my arm. Annus Mirabilus.
One of my students brought this article into a recent class discussion. Did you know that some of Isaac Newton’s greatest discoveries came as a result of remaining homebound during London's Great Plague? The year he spent away from his university and the instruction of his professors was later referred to as his annus mirabilus, or "year of wonders.”
Thinking back on all we gained from a thinker like Newton, I would say it was a wondrous year indeed. Please stay well my friends, so many are getting truly sick. Stay home if you can and may wondrous miracles come as a result.
