That is a very cool variation on Space Oddity. Thanks for posting it.

Have you not seen that before, Taxy? It was all over Facebook last summer. It's the real Commander Tom Hadfield, the first Canadian commander of the International Space Station. He has a Facebook page and posted lots of pix from space. My Earth science geek/teacher hubby and friends loved it

I could do that!

I love to fly, and I love to go fast. I can't here because of speed limits on the ground but in the sky, it would be fun!

I like that feeling of being stuffed into your seat when the jetliner leaves the ground. That power! Oh, I love that!

And the feeling of being separated of the Earth is so exhiliarating! It is such freedom!

I envy birds. I want to learn to fly a plane one day!

With love,
~Cat

Nope, I missed that. It would have been extra cool if his name were Tom, because he was a commander and then he would have been Commander Tom, but his name is Chris Hadfield.

Oops, I guess I had Major Tom and Commander Chris mixed in my mind

Cat, I don't know if you know this poem, but my husband who is a pilot has been caring a copy of it in his flight log since 1975. It always gives me shivers when I recite it to myself when I fly with him.
Enjoy....

Oh!

"Put out my hand, and touched the face of God."

This brought tears, it is so very beautiful. Thank you so much! I love this!

With love,

Oh do fly, Ogress! When you look out that window at 30,000 feet, your chest will feel odd with very much emotion!

With love,
