What has this to do with Endeavor which flew over my head yesterday in Berkeley? Well, only that it flew so low and so slow, that those of us at our location at Cal felt as though we could reach out and touch it. A miracle of modern science floating right before our eyes. I waved like a lunatic and wondered how much fun it must have been for the crew of that 747 to fly over the Bay Area on a such a spectacular autumnal equinox. Gone was our fabled fog, which I had just written about in my excerpt below. Instead, a blue sky, some brilliant minds, and two big white birds (with a fighter jet for escort) reminded us that low and slow can be the best path at times.
All of which brings me to BoingBoing. Thanks to them, I've now seen this video of Thomas in Space. Here it is isolated for your viewing pleasure. Grab a tissue. And have a fabulous weekend reading, dreaming, reaching, and remembering that anything is possible.
