Post Valentine Reflections…

Love. It transcends age, distance and time. It is what connects the human spirit to the world around us and to each other. It is the ebb and flow between two souls, a continual conversation that requires no words. It is the beauty that resonates long after the skin has faded and our bodies have grown soft.

Love. It is the purpose and meaning of our existence. It is why, year after decade, century after millennium we continue. Continue to share, continue to smile, continue to reach out and be part of something bigger than ourselves.

Designed To Amaze – Part 1

If you know anything at all about me you’ll know that, when it comes to cool and/or weird images, I can be a little like a dog that’s spotted a squirrel – I simply can’t help myself. So it’ll probably surprise no one who knows me that, after discovering the Ron Beck Designs blog on Tumblr, I ended up “collecting” so many images that it’s going to take three posts to show them all.

This is the first of those posts…

An Update on the ‘Cosmos’ Reboot!

Many of you will recall this excited bit of writing from my Cosmos – A Spacetime Odyssey! post of last July:

If you’re as big a fan of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos: A Personal Voyage mini-series as I am, which is only the most widely watched PBS series in the world, then you’re probably well aware of the fact that an all new version, Cosmos – A Spacetime Odyssey, hosted by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, has been in the works.

Well, while I haven’t been able to find an exact premiere date for the new show, they have released its first official trailer – an awesome spectacle in its own right!

Well my friends, after reading the Rebooting ‘Cosmos’: Neil DeGrasse Tyson Explains Why Iconic TV Series Returns in 2014 article on Space.com yesterday, and then following that with a little searching around, I am as pleased as punch to bring you this update to my previous post! 😀
