Perfect Ending of a Day

.... is there anything better than to end a perfect art with a elegant desert? The first course of my 'desert' was a great demo at the Weston Art Guild and then a slice of delicious bread pudding topped with a wonderful warm rum vanilla cream ...... life does not get any better! Sorry no recipes this is an art blog!

Shuttel Endeavour

14 years ago we moved to South Florida. Since then every time a shuttle flew into space and I was able to watch the lift off I would do so. If it is at night I will set my alarm clock, get up turn on the TV and watch CNN. They always show it live. About a minute after lift off, the shuttle appears on 'my' horizon. And every time I am amazed at the sight, it simply takes my breath away. By now I know exactly where to watch out for the shuttle, the two palm trees where I get the first glimpse of it. And then as it gets higher I can see the separation between the booster rocket and the shuttle and then if it is night I can watch it disappear towards the north east....

I agree the picture I am posting is not great, but still it is my shuttle and my inspiration. To this day I regret that I did not try to take a picture when the international space station and the shuttle were visible together by eye from our beautiful backyard.

My two pieces 'Brain-E-Scape' were inspired by my love and respect for space.
