New Netflix documentary on civilian space flight — YouTube**
*I’m not endorsing this op-ed. Just think it’s fascinating that Breitbart published an article saying Fauci, et al., are pushing the vaccine to do a reverse-psychology on MAGA folks and cause them not to take the vaccine. Talk about 4D chess.
**One of the producers is good friend, Jonathan D. Woods. Super proud of him. Also the show is a good refresher on the latest in space exploration, which, if you aren’t following closely, has seen major developments in the past couple years.
“Examine for a moment an ordinary mind on an ordinary day. The mind receives a myriad impressions — trivial, fantastic, evanescent, or engraved with the sharpness of steel. From all sides they come, an incessant shower of innumerable atoms; and as they fall, as they shape themselves into the life of Monday or Tuesday, the accent falls differently from of old; the moment of importance came not here but there; so that, if a writer were a free man and not a slave, if he could write what he chose, not what he must, if he could base his work upon his own feeling and not upon convention, there would be no plot, no comedy, no tragedy, no love interest or catastrophe in the accepted style, and perhaps not a single button sewn on as the Bond Street tailors would have it. Life is not a series of gig-lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end.” — Virginia Woolf, 1925

Your Woolf quotation reminded me that you are reading and thinking. This leads to doing stuff that does others good. Knowing this makes me deeply happy.
