I'm not very passionate about many things; I just don't seem to get excited in general. To tell the truth, I sort of envy those people who can get really worked up over such things as a sporting event, a movie, or anything like that. Maybe I think too much or am too analytical--I don't know. Even as a kid, I wasn't one to get all excited and scream or laugh at things most kids will get excited about. But there is one area that I have always felt a passion for--outer space! As a child, I would look up into the night sky and feel a 'connection' or 'longing' to be up there, traveling amongst the stars & planets. It's almost as though I feel that my "real" home is somewhere else out there in the universe, that I am somehow an alien visiting this small planet and someday I will get to return home to where I belong.
I still wish sometimes that I could leave on a long voyage into the cosmos to explore all the wonders that I know are out there. Would I miss being here on Earth? Odd as it may sound--No, I doubt that I would.
The reality is, of course, that I'll never make it into space and get to travel out to the stars.
But I can still look up at the night sky and dream, can't I?
This video is a tribute to those that have been able to leave the Earth to venture into space, if even for just a short time.
The next video is titled "Cute Boys" and that pretty much says it all. It's a series of paintings by Steve Walker of, well, "cute boys"....
The reality is, of course, that I'll never have a cute boy fall in love with me.
But I can still look at them and dream, can't I?
