Moonwalking

On July 21, 1899, Ernest Hemingway, the American novelist and short story writer, was born. I have already quoted Hemingway here, but he's such a prolific writer he deserves another. I'm writing a short story/picture book at the moment so I'm very focused on writing:

"A man's got to take a lot of punishment to write a really funny book."

Today in 1969 the Space Race reached it's most important milestone. A man walked on the moon. Well, two actually, Lance Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. What an incredible feeling that must have been. Maybe one day in the future there will be commercial flights to the moon. Now that would be something to celebrate.

My mother is Malaysian and we have plenty of family in Singapore and Malaysia. Today is Racial Harmony Day in Singapore, and being multi-racial I would always celebrate that.
