The Next Best Thing To A Space Trip

"Who would have thought traveling to outer space could be such a profound experience? OK, probably everybody, but these former astronauts really articulate it in a way that was just a little mind-blowing."

Space trip. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

Thanks for the link. Superb descriptions.

Having spent extended times in some desolate places their words have profound meaning.

Being away from the nitty gritty stuff, basic needs taken care of. The mind can wonder and then assmble meaining not possible while trying to make a buck and dodging traffic.

Looking at the big picture, the earth with many of denizens' picayune infighting becomes trivial. But then returning to civilzation is both welcome and soul killing.
There must be moderation in everything, including moderation.
