      Yeah, it is sad that we’ve abandoned manned space exploration for the time being. Of course, it is an incredibly costly venture that seems hard to justify when the brilliant minds could be invested on a problem closer to home, but I do hope that we’ll continue venturing into the “final frontier”. 🙂

    I’m intrigued by the story behind the photo. How did these people enter into their own frontiers? Very nice.

      The picture is of a bunch of my friends on a trip to China where we taught English at a University. We spent a few days in Beijing, and went to Tiananmen Square, where we decided on a very ironic pose considering the history of the place. Each of us has a very different background and different futures, but for that moment all our paths had converged and I like to think of this picture as kind of a metaphor for our launch. Thanks for asking! 🙂

    Words went with the picture very well. A ‘leap’ is a ‘leap.’ Smiles.

      Thank you! Your comment reminded me of one of my favorite children’s books: A Hole is to Dig. If you haven’t read it, I would strongly recommend it 🙂
