Grandmother Moon - John Trudell



Beautiful spoken word piece by a Native American poet, backed by a Native chorus singing a Nokomis song. Deep and powerful pagan poetry. I thought it fitting to counteract the orgy of grunting and #1'ing that tends to get pretty loud this day of the year.

RIP Neil Armstrong


The television image was grainy, fuzzy. His voice crackled and sputtered as it made its way over hundreds of thousands of miles. Looking back, it can seem anti-climactic - just a guy going down a ladder. But how my heart leapt into my eight-year-old throat when his foot came down and touched the surface: the first human being to arrive elsewhere. It changed me, it changed my life. It changed so many lives. It changed...the world. We weren't earthbound anymore. For a brief time, we ventured away from our little blue jewel. Only baby steps, but humanity took them. We took them, and for a time, it seemed inevitable that we would take another, and another, and another. One day, we would grow up, leave the nest, make our way in the wider cosmos. And now I wonder, will we ever go out our front door again?
