What a wonderful day to ponder the enormity of a harmonious systematic universe.
Anyone who knew me as a child may remember that from the time I was five years old until middle school I wanted to be an Astronomer... I wanted to look up into the sky and ponder the big questions...
'What IS that little light over there?? And that one?? Have all of the craters in the moon been named? I could do that job... I could name stars! WHAT DO YOU MEEEAN SPACE CAMP?!?! YES!!'
I finally realized that astronomy involved heavy mathematical skills. I got over that career objective really fast.
I may not have followed that particular dream, but I am still deeply thrilled excited by all things cosmos and the history of space exploration. Today was one giant leap for my inner child. John Darling took me to the Johnson Space Center, commonly referred to as "Houston, we have a problem."
After exploring space we headed south to Galveston and the Gulf of Mexico for sunset.
Along with some BBQ, we had the perfect day together.
