the Space Shuttle


Last night was very special, my son and I (who is almost 4) did the
countdown, and after many days of waiting, we watched the Shuttle
Launch into outer space. This is a sight that never ceases to amaze
me, the power under those astronauts and the fragility of the
situation – and the fact that they are going into space. Watching his
eyes light up as the engines started, and the moment of blast off – he
was hooked, just like I was when I was a kid. Now he wants to be an
astronaut, and he may well be – the sky is the limit.
