Happy 40th to Neil, Buzz and Mike!

Heroes of probably the coolest adventure ever...

So, a few words from the Other Neil, as sort of a tribute... It seemed appropriate to the spirit of the Apollo astronauts:

Mission
Words by neil peart, music by geddy lee and alex lifeson

Hold your fire --
Keep it burning bright
Hold the flame'til the dream ignites --
A spirit with a vision
Is a dream with a mission

Spirits fly on dangerous missions
Imaginations on fire
Focused high on soaring ambitions
Consumed in a single desire
In the grip of
A nameless possession --
A slave to the drive of obsession --
A spirit with a vision
Is a dream with a mission...

It's cold comfort
To the ones without it
To know how they struggled --
How they suffered about it

If their lives were
Exotic and strange
They would likely have
Gladly exchanged them
For something a little more plain
Maybe something a little more sane

We each pay a fabulous price
For our visions of paradise
But a spirit with a vision
Is a dream with a mission...




(aside: Geddy Lee- that geeky Jewish kid, one of the most influential Bass players... how cool is that?)

No, but it was the best fake out ever!!!! I think they all deserve a big hand just for that.
