Big Sky Dreams

Remember that scene in "Apollo 13" where Tom Hanks' character is looking at the moon and covers it with his thumb. He wanted to be there. I think about that moment, the dream.

I wonder if it began for that astronaut on a day like this:

Anna's home school science class launched their rockets today. The sun was bright, the sky very blue, weather warm. The boys chased the rockets to gather the pieces. Some of the parachutes broke away from the rockets, and the girls were excited to be there and see their creations take flight.
What a great day to dream!
