Thanks, Pete, we're going to miss you.  Every time I pick up an instrument, it's because you inspired me.  It's our turn now to keep the music, and the spirit, going.  

The key to the future of the world,” he said in 1994, “is finding the optimistic stories and letting them be known.”

I remember very well the Christmas Eve video from Apollo 8 as it orbited the moon.  And many of us know the truly iconic image of earth rise over the moon below. 

This marvelous video animation combines recordings and images from the original mission with the detail from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter that's up there now to recreate the flight path and the imagery taken by the astronauts.  I smiled watching the whole thing.

The astronauts knew what they were looking at.  It hit them immediately.

Saturday was probably the last warm day (over 60) of the year.  So, Benny and I took advantage of it and my 45 minutes rowing around Long Pond ended with this beautiful sky.  Gratitude.

Do watch this.  Human, screens, projections, and robot arms.  Remarkable.
