I’m taking a moment to appreciate some fine new BRI-ART ! This is a Joyce Moore [@magnolia_stereos] animation of a brilliant visualisation by Suzanne Duncan [@chaotic_queen_zee] – Brilliant !
It occurs to me that as we get older, the meanings of words change in popular culture.
In the 1950s when I was growing up, we used to call a vehicle that was going to take people into space a “SPACE SHIP”. That’s what Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future, piloted, for Heaven’s sake ! But I think that since then the term, without my noticing, dropped out of current use. So the ‘Ship’ that sailed across the Milky Seas (of our parent Galaxy) in my song “‘39” was indeed a rocket-powered transporter of humans.
But this is the most romantic interpretation I have ever seen – thanks guys !!! Love it !!!
