Château de la Lune

Come when the nights are bright with stars
Or come when the moon is mellow;
Come when the sun his golden bars
Drops on the hay-field yellow.
Come in the twilight soft and gray,
Come in the night or come in the day,
Come, O love, whene’er you may,
And you are welcome, welcome.

— From Invitation to Love by Paul Laurence Dunbar

The N’dali (via A Passion for Virtual Fashion)

Writing from Battle Creek, Michigan:

I’ve had to focus resources on other things besides the computer for a while, so my tower isn’t repaired yet.  (I hope I get it repaired in time to pay my rents in world!)  Once again I’m borrowing one of the family netbooks, which can’t run Second Life, to put something up on the blog and keep it alive.

But what I’m putting up is fabulous. Take a look at this encyclopedia entry from Harper Beresford!

The N'dali “The N’dali of the temperate forests and hills of Southern Peninsula of Melanasia are an independent tribe of traders and craftspeople. They are most noted for their fine metalwork and technology in working with exotic creature skins and feathers such as those of the phoenix and dragon. Their people are homogenous with genetic markers such as pale fine caucasian skin, thick dark black hair and most amazingly, golden eyes, which appear ubiquitousl … Read More

Tranquility Base Plus 40 Years

Writing from Gulf Shores, Alabama….

I don’t remember all the specifics of that incredible July 20, 1969.  But, like Pearl Harbor or the assassination of John Kennedy, I remember where I was.  It was a Sunday, and we were fastened to the television that day; we drank in every thing that Walter Cronkite was saying, along with whoever was in the studio along with him.  We listened to the voices coming back to us from over 200,000 miles away, sometimes unintelligable, most times talking gibberish to the “layperson,” while Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin guided their fragile little bug down to the surface of the Moon. 

And yet we couldn’t get enough of it.  It was — and remains to this day — the single biggest event in the history of the planet, when we at last “slipped the surly bonds of earth” and set halting foot on another celestial body.  The words of Armstrong as he stepped off the landing foot of the Lunar Module were burned into my mind.  I was 10 years old, and had been raised on a diet of Star Trek, and this was the first step down the road to that possible future. 

We’ve seemingly lost a little of the dream since then — no person has been back to the Moon, never mind another planet in the Sol system, since 1972, though we continue to send unmanned probes on extra-Terran and even extra-system flights.  But the potential is still there, and we have shown that it can be done.  That will be the most enduring legacy of Apollo 11, and one that we will, hopefully, live up to again.
