Moon walking on earth

063 001

Life at eye level, the vital level.

The world needs more people with both feet on the ground.
Those who ought to show responsibility and visionary behavior.
They often looks like some who do moon walking down here on earth.

Well, I don’t think we should go to the moon.
I think we maybe should send some politicians up there
*Ron Paul – american politican*

Like the moon stood still

018 002

Afternoon – the moon races around the earth while the earth racing around the sun
but the moon cann’t keep pace and losing regularly a lap, the reason why it’s seen at day.

If you can’t explain it simply
you don’t understand it well enough
*Albert Einstein – anyone who don’t know the good old Albert.?*

Undercover full moon

006 002

Early evening where the full moon already is arrived behind the shadows of the willows.

The trees that whisper in the evening
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
Sing a song of sorrow and grieving
Carried away by a moonlight shadow.
*written by Mike Oldfield*

By the way full moon and shadows haven’t necessarily being similar to sad mood.

Wandering thoughts

01 22

There are many opportunities for escape
wandering thoughts are one of them
perhaps the most used, for better or worse
they can be both extremely inspiring and excessive stupefying
rarely at the same time.

Used proactively, it may end up as a bridge over troubled water
but used non-active as an anesthetic, it may end up as visionless illusions.

Just as to stretch out unsuccessful for the moon.

Incidentally then the moon may be norwegian
the photo is taken yesterday (saturday) when the moon came out mid-afternoon
either late or too early (relative to our illusions)
as if it had been to Norwegian National Day celebration.

Travel Theme Curves

Men have probably always looked for curves
of course, with sensitivity and discretion
therefore, they are rarely discovered
and only as a result of really bad luck

more about that later.

Excellent inspiration from Ailsa’s blog “Where’s my backpack” and her travel theme
Curves

The moon is accused of many things
everything from tidal movements
over fertility myths
to womens hysterical moments
and mens restless foolishness
through time there have been tons of myths about the moon
around the world
but what curves.

Curves of cars has always been the subject of much attention – my parents were in the first half of the 1960s the happy owners of a Renault 4CV model 1958 – a real lovely car with nice curves – in the summer of 1964 was our little family on a trip in the beautiful car  we were at the time father, mother and so little I 

Along for the trip we had my father’s brother, his wife and their 4 children aged 10, 8, 6, 4 – so we were 4 adults and 5 children in the car – it was a wonderful trip, but there were stretched some curves out of all the participants afterwards the daytrip.

Curves which went wrong:

For about 35 years ago, I was a summer in Rotterdam – a wonderful city to visit for a 17 year old guy, a city with much ‘alive’ – perhaps to much ‘alives’ – were walking in the port area close to Euro Tower in my own thoughts – a pair of cute girls the same age as me ride by – just when they were next to me whistle they are shouting “Hello sweet guy” – I turn around to see the cute girls and take a step to the side maybe 2 – and fall into the harbor of Rotterdam – how embarrassing – the girls throw a rope end down to me so I can get up – wet wet wet – afterwards it was very funny and we laughed a lot – so they followed me to the Danish Seamen’s Church – where I had a bath and dried my shorts and t-shirt – and the priest and his sweet wife got a good laugh – beware of curves ..!

 

 

 

The man on the moon

The last step for the man on the moon

 With all respect to Michael Jackson,
there’ll never be more than one real moonwalker.

RIP Neil Armstrong, the real moonwalker

 Neil Armstrong was one of my few heroes – although he had been a Navy fighter pilot, a test pilot for NASA’s forerunner and an astronaut, then Neil Armstrong never allowed himself to be caught up in the celebrity and glamour of the space program – he never be someone else than Neil Armstrong – “I am, and ever will be, a white socks, pocket protector, nerdy engineer,” Neil Armstrong said as late as in february 2000 in one of his rare public appearance. “And I take a substantial amount of pride in the accomplishments of my profession.” – every single one who lived that summer day in 1969, will never forget him and I think mostly every one remembering it as was it last sunday it happens.

“It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth – I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth – I didn’t feel like a giant – I felt very, very small” (Neil Armstrong
 
“I think we’re going to the moon because it’s in the nature of the human being to face challenges – it’s by the nature of his deep inner soul… we’re required to do these things just as salmon swim upstream” (Neil Armstrong)
 
“It’s a brilliant surface in that sunlight – the horizon seems quite close to you because the curvature is so much more pronounced than here on earth – it’s an interesting place to be,  I recommend it” (Neil Armstrong)

In the summer of 1969 – “Le Drake Noir” was 9½, only a duckling, and my little brother only 2 years old at that time – a large number of hours was used that summer between the 2 brother talking about what was going on soon on the moon.
 
We were very committed and all opportunities for information was vacuumed into the head of the 2 boys – danish and german newspapers were read so the ink faded – the bigger boy read aloud to the little boy – TV with one danish channel (there were not more) and 3 german was monitored together, where the bigger boy translated for the smaller boy. 
 It was so exciting.
 
By the way, I forgot to mention – so we besides got a little sister the day before Armstrong had to land on the moon – our mother was in the hospital and our father was a happy man and asked if we wanted to go in to see our newborn sister – a totally silly question
 of course we had no time to spend on that kind of things – we should see Neil Armstrong  then our father must drive alone to see our newborn little sister – besides so children at that time wasn’t allow visiting hospitals except when they were sick 
so we had nevertheless to stand outside and looked through the window,
looking for mum and the newborn sister inside.
