Space Cadet

You'll find it is a good idea, now and then, to look at the bigger picture: see with a broader view the workings of your fellow men. A word of advice, if I may, please, don't stay too long, be sure to always come back soon! One learns next to nothing about mankind by looking at the earth while standing on the moon. NOTE: Another oldie.

Its a bit like in business from worker bee to high up the tree, think they know it all from up there but they need to keep a close relationship with those bees or they'll lose sight of the detail. This poem can apply to so many different things, i really like it! Regards, Laura.

Hi Tim, there were only 12 men walked on the moon, and 0 women. I know you are not talking about me....

I have one similar to to this but longer and also an early work. At the moment I'm trying to throw off a wicked cold and sore throat! Where or how I got it, I haven't a clue. Keep posting./M

Excellent point, Laura! From the moon the earth is always in the same spot, too. Sure would be crazy seeing the earth from the moon!

That's a fine observation, Paul. A sort of omnipresent view of humanity ...

I like! Just watched 'Martian' with Matt Damon so I was easily transported to your write. It was fun, AND true; they are just up there to decide exactly where to put the first Walmart. Enjoyed ... CayCay
