T-Minus 13 hours…DragonCon here I come!

I haven’t posted in a while. Sorry about that. I plan to rectify that. But, work and prep work for volunteering at DragonCon this upcoming weekend has taken up most of my time in the last couple of months.

DragonCon you say? What is it? Never heard of it? Do you live under a rock? Well…may be not if you live outside of the states. It is one of the largest Science Fiction and Fantasy convention held here in Atlanta, GA, USA this Friday through Monday (8/30 – 9/2). And I volunteer for the Space Fan Track. Do you like Space? Come find us on Facebook under Dragon Con Space Track and Twitter @dconspacetrack. The twitter feed for Dragon Con itself is @DragonCon. And if you are going and have kids, there is a NASA workshop where the kids can make something at 9:30am on Monday morning in the Space Track room (Hilton 309/310). Come, join us!

I’m packed, mostly. I’m sure I’m forgetting something. Hopefully, I’ll get it together before I leave tomorrow. I may blog about stuff and/or post pictures (as soon as I figure out how this app thing works). I will definitively post some poetry. 🙂

Have a glorious weekend!

Poetry: Space Love

I got inspired today.  Started a story and just sort of demanded to be written.  Below is the poem that coincided.  I wrote them about the same time.  I think they inspire each other.  Now let’s see what Mother Inspiration has in store for me….

Space Love

Brightly twinkling lights
Vastly span the void of space
Cold, cold wondrous sight
Envelope stars and galaxies a pace.

 

Love is strange and good
Wisdom comes with age
Love and wisdom is the food
For which galaxies are born in beige

 

What is the color of Love?
What is the color of Wisdom?
Beige is the color above.
And winter here in the system

 

Dreams come and go.
This space is now my place.
Welcome home to sow
A new life, dreams, and love in space.
