Indeed Kat, thank you.
I still have the newspaper from when we walked on the moon. My mom told me to save it, that it would be worth something someday. I have it wrapped in plastic and keep it in the bottom drawer of my dresser to keep it in the dark. It's yellowed and looks quite nostalgic! I think its pretty cool that you wrote about this, Andrew.

Thank you J
WHAT!!! We've been to the moon?
Thought that was a Hollywood soundstage. LOL

That time sitting in front of the black & white TV was very special. Kids today have no idea.

A good bit of writing Andrew. Succinctly states a wonderful bit of history.

Hi Ted, thanks for reviewing. I remember sitting around the TV I was 9.
This is so apt, remembering today what took place fifty years ago. Remember it so well, in my teens and completely awe struck.

About
I love pushing the limits on writing poetry. Not everyone's cup of tea but maybe a few will enjoy the twists and turns, the simple, the depth of simplicity, the bizarre and the ridiculous. Strindberg.. more..
