Default Re: Rest Easy Neil Armstrong

...

So spooky -

I am sitting in exactly the same spot in a tiny Austrian village where about 3 months ago I was talking to a friend about Charlie Parker and Coltrane being like Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin - being #1 and #2.

We talked about about how small steps were needed to make giant leaps. And just six months ago, I visited NASA and stepped into Neil's footprint after watching an amazing film about the moon landing and hearing him talk to kids about the future. Guess I've been a huge fan since 1969. Yes, am old enough to remember the actual moon landing and spent much of my childhood assembling Apollo rocket models with my brother.

He was so nuts about Apollo 11, had a birthday cake shaped like a rocket! Bye bye Neil. We will never outgrow you.
