I’ll be back (never give up)

Posted: November 29, 2013 in Uncategorized

This morning I read an interesting article. The article explained how a comet believed to be as old as the solar system named ISON, flew close to the sun. Astronomers observed and tracked ISON they knew the pass by the Sun was happening and the knew that ISON would soon be gone. The comet began it’s Icarus impersonation and then it was gone. I wasn’t there but I can just see all the sky watchers seeing the comets approach and then something happened! ISON reappeared, the scientist are unsure but it seems that the comet did not burn up and die. It reappeared. I don’t know about you but that is simply incredible. Ok I admit it I may be a little bit if a geek, bit really let’s review.

ISON got within 724000 miles from the sun, the Earth is 93 million miles from the sun! The amazing part is that ISON seems to have survived. I can’t help but think of the tragedy of Icarus. The son who failed to heed his fathers warnings flew to close to the son and drowned in the sea. Hubris was the young mans downfall, blind ambition was his undoing. Do we have a new story? One that rewards ambition? I can’t say, but if ISON can survive the sun you can survive whatever it is you are going through!
