Blast Off

I like this picture. I like the color and the dark shadow, I like how the tree frames the picture, but mostly I like the slightly off center capture of the shuttle taking off. It’s the bright blip right over the horizon and to the left of the tree trunk. Those are people heading into space. I don’t remember anything else about the launch, so it went up and came back without incident. It’s kind of like me, heading off for an adventure in higher ed. I’m trailblazing, not following anyone in my family. I’m back this Monday to try and find an abode. Wish me luck.  All I need is the housing, then I’m ready for take off.  That’ll be me, up and back without incident.  Right.
