National Air & Space Museum, part 1: Milestones of Flight
Living in DC is living in a city with an embarrassment of
riches in galleries, monuments, museums and parks. I spent time today at The
National Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institution. It was an amazing
visit. The last time I had been there, it was under so much renovation, that it
was just disappointing. This time I came away feeling to amazed and proud of
the nation's history and expertise in the fields of aviation and astronomy. I
will share images from the museum in little snippets for your appreciation.
Here is the first...from the entrance hall of "Milestones of Flight".
I was born on a bitterly cold end of January night in the year 1961. It was seven years to the day after the birth of Oprah Winfrey, and one year before the death of Robert Frost on that same day. Cool associations both.
I was the first child of older parents (my mother was 42). I love the color yellow. I am single, and fascinated with life.
