I have lots of hope for the new year.
No, seriously, I do!
We, as a race, the human race, are capable of amazing things. We live in the future. Our lives are filled with science-fiction, which has always been the language of wonder and hope, even when it’s filled with warnings about where we may go wrong. But, now, right now, we have people who live, albeit in a limited way, in space. And that, gentle readers, has always inspired hope in me.
Here’s a link to some beautiful photographs which inspire that hope in me, courtesy of NASA and brought to you via Yahoo: Astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson looks down at Earth.
I hope you have a new year filled with wonder and hope, people. Truly I do. Be good to each other this year, okay?
