Onward To The Future

The United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket with NASA’s Orion spacecraft mounted atop, lifts off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station's Space Launch Complex 37 at at 7:05 a.m. EST, Friday, Dec. 5, 2014, in Florida. The Orion spacecraft orbited Earth twice, reaching an altitude of approximately 3,600 miles above Earth before landing in the Pacific Ocean. No one was aboard Orion for this flight test, but the spacecraft is designed to allow us to journey to destinations never before visited by humans, including an asteroid and Mars.

I’d like to think this photo represents me right now, gearing up for the new year, the year I finally write and finish that novel.

I have no idea if it actually will happen, but I’d like to think I’ll at least fire up those boosters and see what becomes of it.

I will say this, if I don’t give it a go I have nobody and no thing to blame but myself. And that is a freeing thought.
