What do you want to be when you grow up?
My new favourite blog is The Celestial Monochord which i discovered in a haze of bliss brought on by reading and hearing Long Sought Home - What a great day!
The Chinese have a saying about having a dream for after you find your dream. I was reminded of this by a convoluted route.
Trick Two is going through the Door.
Trick One is finding the damned thing in the first place.
Long Sought Home has a link to The Ramblings Of The Bearded One who posted (follow the link) a witty Einstein Chalkboard pic, where Albert is seen addressing some of the fundamental problems of the Universe. Then Somehow I found the Old Negro Space Program which also has it's beginnings in the basic yearnings of folks to get a career, and a bit of privacy and erm, other stuff. This documentary Unearths a scandal of Astronomical proportions.
And just when I thought it was safe to relax, The Celestial Monochord hits again with this little vignette from Astronaut, Steve Robinson
... there is a guy with his eye on the bigger picture.
Don't forget to check the Einstein and Folkways Records Story too.
