Happy Belated Birthday to Harry Potter and J.K Rowling!
This whole series is part of the reason as to why reading is so magical to me today, and why I find that pastime so addictive and enthralling. I strongly believe that Harry Potter revolutionized the way that an entire generation thinks of storytelling. I personally found this series at a point in my life where I needed the comfort of an escape and by the end of his adventure, Harry ended up being with me through so much more. I am almost certain that this is the case for most people who ended up being ‘Potter-fans’.
He taught me that the easiest path is rarely ever the right one. He taught me that blood almost never matters, it’s the heart that it beats through that counts. He taught me the great love can be both blindingly terrible and inexplicably wonderful.
And also that Voldemort will always attack at the end of the school year. (How very considerate).
I owe a great deal to J.K Rowling and Harry and I sincerely wish them both a Happy (Belated) Birthday!
“Music is what saves us all. If you close your eyes and let the music take over, let the mind wander across rivers of notes and rhymes, when a soft voice can touch you like a warm summer breeze, when you can feel the words and taste sweet harmonies, when the music surrounds you and makes you fly high, that’s when you know that music can be so much more than simple background noise, that it can build paths and open doors to a whole new world, that music can change everything.”
Three cheers for Heidi Blickenstaff for working a very long day yesterday at the First You Dream taping (in crazy high heels), flying from Chicago to New York at 7 am, and still performing in both shows of Something Rotten today. That is dedication.
During an IAmA on reddit last week, actor Nichelle Nichols—known to many as Communications Officer Lt. Uhura on the original Star Trek—revealed she’s preparing to fly on an official NASA mission. While she won’t be going into space, she will be helping to move humanity beyond into the final frontier.
Ms. Nichols will work with the SOFIA mission, NASA’s initiative involving the world’s largest airborne observatory.
“SOFIA does not, sadly, fly into space,” Nichols told fans. “It’s an airborne observatory, a massive telescope mounted inside a 747 flying as high as is possible. I was on a similar flight, the first airborne observatory, back in 1977. It’s an amazing experience, you get a totally different perspective than from Earth. I do hope someone gets some great pictures.”
