Orbit In Decay
My son is trying to learn to drive. It's hard for him, for a variety of reasons. He had an instructor, some ex-military guy, who yelled at him and told him "trying and failure are mutually exclusive"
What a jackass
I mean, seriously. This guy has never in his whole life attempted something so difficult that he didn't nail it on the first try? Pathetic moron.
Anyway, it got me thinking about our space missions and the many heroic failures and lives lost to further that endeavor. Screw that guy, I'd rather be an astronaut risking my life than a driving instructor taking out my frustrations at kids.
Here's a song about crashing and burning. But in a good way.
From above, you see everything
Perspective only distance can bring
It can’t last, but nothing will
Disorder brings us closer still
Breathe a little don’t think of what it means
The blaze of glory, the empty cold, nothing in between
Work to shape just how it comes
Revising plans, running the sums
The complex dance may bring us back home yet
Take every chance, with no regrets
But if we fall, like a shooting star
Wish for us to be just as we are
We weren’t made to go quietly, just to do no wrong
Better far to try and fail than to never push beyond
And if we fall, brought low to the ground
Just know we were never bound
