Awww! One of my offspring has written a brief photo journal piece about being at my house and nostalgia from her childhood days on her blog Spring Tree Road if you’d care for a spring *flowered peek!
*oxalis blooming pink although the clumps are mixed with smidges of white blossoms, too. Charming little lads ‘n’ lassies are they.
Set for launch at 2:01 pm edt from Cape Canaveral, Florida, the space shuttle Atlantis will be on its way to repair the Hubble Telescope and hopefully extend the Hubble’s photographic life for 5 years or longer.
The launch chart is available for viewing, if you’re interested, and I’ve included a few brief notes, details, and some of my frettings, too.
Today’s Atlantis launch has these ‘Images for Integration’ for the Sun Taurus-Moon Sagittarius, an apt Earth-Fire pair of energies indicating magnetic instability, hard work, inspiration, and practicality.
This is the “grounded but high-flying; gambler/banker” blend, say the Harveys who wrote the excellent book, ‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign.’
‘A monk builds a cathedral whilst contemplating the infinite reaches of the universe…The prodigal son returns home…Brahm’s Violin Concerto…Balzac’s ‘La Comedie Humaine.’
This Sun-Moon blend performs ‘endless inquiries’ and is shared by Honore Balzac who said,
“There is no such thing as a great talent without a great will-power.”
Seems to me that perhaps the ‘cathedral’ as mentioned is the Hubble!
