Phenomenal what science CANNOT accomplish.
40 years ago, on July 20th, I sat mesmerized by television images of Apollo 11 successfully landing on the moon. Only a dozen years earlier, I watched the Soviet Union’s Sputnik satellite float across the night sky.
Phenomenal what science CAN accomplish.
Science is as science does.
As pictured, 24 years ago, it was an eclectic reception, cake was traditional attire was not. Foregoing the rote vows of "in sickness and in health ..."; we embraced the poetry of Khalil Gibran.
In spite of progression of Multiple Sclerosis, home care, and care facility era endlessly redefining our lives, the poetry sings through time.
“Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.”
“Let there be spaces in your togetherness,Caring is as caring does.
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another, but make not a bond of love.”
In my private daily temple to "if you can put a man on the moon, why can't you cure ..." NASA photos of Apollo 11 decorate our laundry room; one small step for man one giant leap for appliances.
