Thinking Outside the Box (or in it?)
These Thoughts of the Week are intended to put forth a more creative topic than what one might normally encounter, while at the same time being significant. The generally intended objective is that an insight one hasn't lately considered might be offered that would be both interesting to think about and credible.

As a consequence I get to think "outside-the-box" for a moment while I let my muse work. Then something that I might be inspired to look into and write about "occurs" to me. Whatever that actually means.

Sometimes thinking outside-the-box, if it is truly intended to be an "anything goes so long as it is real" creative enterprise means that I need to be willing also to think "inside-the-box." Since within the box all sorts of things are real and interesting as well.

And, if both outside and inside the box is OK for inspiration, then "just the box" should be OK too.

And thus, I began thinking about cellulose. And lignin. And it occurred to me that these might be way more important to life persisting on this planet than I had realized.
