Final Frontier and the Crazy Yarn Lady

STATION IDENTIFICATION

Mr. Iknead loves space stuff, I like space stuff and so when he somehow learned that the International Space Station was going to pass over our house this evening, naturally we had to check it out.  It’s an absolutely perfect, beautiful evening, not a cloud or haze to be seen and just a minute or two behind schedule, sure enough, we saw it.  I was awed.  Really, I was.  Think about it, it’s moving 17,150 miles per hour, 230 miles up and we could see it, and there are people living up there.  Really. Amazing.  As someone who remembers John Glenn’s flight, it never really gets routine, this space thing.  So, yeah, the crazy yarn lady was standing out in the dark, in her pjs, looking up, marveling at how bright it was and how fast it traveled.  Just think, it all started with those Wright boys, whose neighbors probably called them crazy, too.

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure.  There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.  Jawaharlal Nehru
