MARTIAN STARS ..travel to the edge

We had our chance to be Stars today …well, film stars to be exact since we did some outreach and public relations by shooting videos for outreach and schools and college students the other day and this afternoon we had such fun conducting the first MDRS Best Martian Cooking competition and awarding prizes and certificates. Being a family and a bonded crew "unit' is vitally important for success of any mission for long duration space and for future martian settlers.. What a blast we all had. There was so much bellowing, loud belly laughs and everyone having so much fun. Winners could win an extra free shower?  What a free shower? I never thought I would be excited about showers but this is a real luxury here on Mars. 


"...Explore your edges. We are rarely taught about edges: how magical, how challenging, how necessary they are. They give us vision, motivation, and breath. Today, take time to appreciate the power and growth that reside in your edges..."

“Come to the edge," he said.
"We can't, we're afraid!" they responded.
"Come to the edge," he said.
"We can't, We will fall!" they responded.
"Come to the edge," he said.
And so they came. 
And he pushed them.
AND THEY FLEW.”
