I have so many interests as a woman and as a Mother. Most people know me as an Unschooling and Birth Advocate, but I have many other things that I am passionate about.
I love Astronomy and Science and I am a self-proclaimed sky junkie. I love anything to do with the stars and the Universe. It is such a part of Who I Am and my roots of becoming a Mother and Wife. I even won an award in college for my work in an Astronomy. It's funny because back in those days I was petrified of public speaking and almost passed out on stage accepting the award. I couldn't manage to say much of anything except quickly thanking Joe for helping with the housework while I studied.
I am in an utterly Blissful Place when I am exploring the Universe and I love hearing about the vastness of space and I get goosebumps when I hear about light years, or space time.
Tonight our family visited the Planetarium... We saw a special film on Black Holes.. Devin and Dakota enjoyed it, but the narration was a little complicated to follow. I was glued to the screens as I listened to the booming voice sharing about how black holes are formed, from dying stars. They collapse upon themselves and bend light. Amazing. One of my dreams and I have it on my vision board, is to visit the Very Large Aray in New Mexico.
Here I am in front of the am in front of the Incredible Star Projector at the University of Maine's Planetarium.
I loved being there, honoring my inner geek.
Here is a site that I love to visit if anyone is interested. It is the Astronomy Picture of the Day.
