Here we are, and thank you.

Today I got my current copy of National Geographic, this issue dedicated to the exploration of space, with a forward by Ray Bradbury.

Very soon, I'll read it from cover to cover and get a little lost in the photos. And for a short while I'll be a little girl, lying on the grass in South Carolina, wondering at the stars, asking my future self if people will ever reach them.

This is time travel. I still watch the sky and wonder as we all do, about the big questions that make us feel so small.

For tonight, I have a little white Russian in my iced coffee and we are off to sit cross-legged on the floor with a bit of Berlioz (thank you, Alison!) and we'll tape and wrap and wish the best to all the other humans on Earth.

And especially to you.

Thank you.

Thanks for the heads up on the National Geographic magazine, I will definitely be picking that up this week from the bookstore, it sounds like a must have!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you. Off to the bookstore today, now that our snowmageddon has been rained away and the bus is running again.
