My Journey Through the Cosmos

I had the most amazing weekend attending QPAC Friday, Saturday and Sunday to attend the Journey Through the Cosmos presented by the Queensland Symphony Orchestra.  The music was so beautiful and a perfect complement to the science and cosmic wonders discussed.  I feel so honoured to have been there witnessing this spectacular live, knowing it was being simulcast throughout regional Queensland.

Me and Brian CoxThe highlight was, of cause, Saturday night when I got to meet Professor Brian Cox.

I was so excited I was almost beside myself.

To not only meet him, but to shake his hand and chink champagne glasses was undoubtedly most thrilling.

Without knowing it, Professor Cox has helped me understand ‘what’ is beyond the blue we see in the skies over our heads and inspired me to simply look up.

I have been on my own mini Journey Through the Cosmos over the last couple of years, rekindling my childhood passion for the Moon, the stars in the heavens and the wonders of the universe.

By all means, check out my Pinterest account and take a moment to look at the images and information I pin to my boards entitled “Miracles in Space”, “Fireworks” and “Vincent’s Place”.  (Just to mention a few.)

There is also “My Dear Old Friend”.  This is my favourite and most treasured board and contains incredible images and facts about the Moon – the topic of, what I believe to be, the best speech I have written and delivered for Toastmasters so far.

(Even more so than my award-winning speech.)
