Lunette: Lunar Probe (part 3)

Lunette reached down to pick up one last rock when she saw something move from the corner of her eye. She jerked up and looked for a very long time. Then, when she had nearly given up looking, she saw a bit of green. Lunette was scared. She hadn't expected to find anyone else up here on the moon. Clearly her briefing had only covered the basics, there is the moon and bring back rocks.

The green thing was getting closer. It continued to move from behind one rock to another. Lunette was frozen with fear. There wasn't anyone to help her and there really wasn't anywhere to go since her ship was quite a way off now. Just then, the green thing came out from behind a close rock.

"Hello, I'm Bogart," said the creature. He was about the same size as Lunette and very round. He was not armed and did look friendly, so Lunette waved ever so slightly. "Where did you come from?" Lunette pointed at the earth, a small ball in the distance. Bogart continued, "I haven't seen anyone around here before. I came here from my home planet because I really love rocks and hadn't gotten any from here yet. My space craft crashed and now I am stuck here."

Lunette could tell how lonely poor little Bogart had been. He was all alone up here on the moon. It was true that there were some amazing rocks on the moon, but they aren't very good company. Lunette came up with a plan. She pointed to Bogart, then to her ship, and then to earth.

"You want me to go with you to earth," He asked. Lunette nodded. Bogart thought a moment and nodded in return. He really didn't want to stay alone on the moon forever and Lunette was such a nice robot. The two new friends walked hand in hand to the ship and took off toward home. Lunette looked out the window as the earth grew closer and knew that Jayne would be thrilled with the rocks she had gathered and they would have many fantastic adventures with their new friend.

The end.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Indescribable

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.
