Lost in Space? Nah, I'm Good...

Updated: Mar 27, 2019

Space, the final frontier... Yeah, I'm one those geeks. I'll spare you all the Star Trek analogies. You're welcome. However, have you ever gazed up into the night sky whether in your backyard or on en exotic vacation somewhere on this amazing planet and thought, "I could be here forever," frozen in the moment with the brief slice of spiritual clarity on how small we are within the infinite universe. Perhaps we have been here seemingly forever, just specks of cosmic dust. Here for time to pass, and drift about the cosmos, only to reemerge again destined to repeat the cycle all over again. Dreaming upon the galaxy above you, have you ever wondered, wouldn't that be great in a glass with pineapple juice?
