I just really like this!

When the Lord restored
the fortunes of Zion,
we were like those who dream.
Psalm 126:1

What is Kal-Toh?

In the Star Trek universe, Kal-Toh is a game, a study, a chance to prove superior skill and Vulcan logic. It is a puzzle, a jumble of identical objects that deceptively appear to have no united purpose, an illusion of disorder. It's like the one day at a time journey that we play little by little each day, every day.

The players sit facing eachother while taking turns moving tiny metal bars from one place to another. There is a method to the madness, an imperceptible progression from messy shape to sudden and completed perfect form.

Sometimes all we can do is the next step. Then another step. And one more. And suddenly, though it has been building day upon day for a long time, we are done. After building consistently day by day, it is complete. Every thing had its place afterall. Every tiny metal piece belonged somewhere, each step mattered, and here we are.

A man’s steps are from the LORD; how then can man understand his way?
Proverbs 20:24

Behold, I am doing a new thing; 
now it springs forth, 
do you not perceive it? 

I will make a way in the wilderness 
and rivers in the desert.

Isaiah 43:19
