To boldly go where no Woman has gone before

Alien Planets

“Well, it’s worked so far, but we are not off yet” Dr McCoy, Star Trek

To boldly go where no Woman has gone before

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”
— Astronomer Carl Sagan

Cosmos,
The final
Frontier
So far
And yet
So near

Entering the spaceship
Ready for a long trip
Going to Mars?
Or even farther beyond?
Following the stars
Over the magic pond

Through the window
Feelings of alone
One trail of thought
As the mental guide
Trying not to get caught
In a state of confined

As the flight progresses
I feel less stressed
What ever awaits me
It only can be
Something wonderful
And most magical

To boldly go
Where no
Woman
Where no one
Has gone
Before

Sunday, 22nd of November, Part One

In honour of the month of November and beginning of Winter

“Winter is a season of recovery and preparation” Paul Theroux

Sunday, 22nd of November, Part One 

On the 22nd day of November
The snow fall finally came
And one centigrade of minus degrees

The white dust on the ground
Everywhere to be found
Where the heck is my car
Couldn’t have left it far
Grabbed the snow shovel
Moving my muscles
Soon the path is clear
Feeling like a pioneer

On the 22nd day of November
The icy cold rain
Hit the bloody plane
Due to one centigrade of minus degrees

I just hope the roads won’t ice over
Or I’ll be prancing like a four leaf clover
Trying to cross the roads
In the early morning hours
On my way to work
Trying not to go berserk
When it’s really dark
Only dogs will bark

On the 22nd day of November
The snow fall finally came
The icy cold rain
Hit the bloody plane
Due to one centigrade of minus degrees

World Television Day 2015

An homage to Television
World Television Day

“We owe a lot to Thomas Edison – if it wasn’t for him, we’d be watching television by candlelight” Milton Berle

World Television Day 2015

Where would we be
Without our TV

No one or nothing
To guide us
Shining the light on us
The knowledge and wisdom shared
For no one can be spared
From the power of
Television

Long live Television
Our one and true vision
