The following is my account of an incident that I experienced as an Auto-Track Radar Repairman in the USAF. Names were either modified or omitted for the usual reasons. I was a Sr. Airman assigned to the maintenance shift at Detachment 1, 1CEVG La Junta, Colorado. Det 1 was one of many sites across the states that aided in the training of pilots for the purpose of improving bombing skills and threat evasion. We accomplished this by acquiring and tracking military aircraft as they'd attempt simulated bomb runs over a virtual war zone consisting of rancher's silos and farm houses. The TSQ-96 was a Vietnam era radar system but still up for the task in this, the early 1980's. In charge of the 96 and my immediate supervisor was a rather portly Staff Sergeant that reminded me of a...
Suspended in a beam of Light Suspended in a beam of light, So nearly tumbled out of sight A fraction of a pixel seen Where all my little life has been. Where all my tiny mind unfolds Where all my simple dreams and goals Have found a stage to yell and shout The few poor lines I've blurted out. My airborne helicopter strolls encounters with both gems and trolls sweet...
The vistas of cosmology While I bumble about the place I love to ponder aerospace I love to wonder at the stars Whilst peering past my prison bars I've lived too long with shuttered mind Along with most of humankind But Science now has gifted me The vistas of cosmology.

He may be brilliant, rich in skills And never want for bread or gold But if there lurks a heart beneath The baking soda white smile teeth Then surely he will ponder grief And search at times for sweet...
In Saturn's patient shadow Shielded from the Sun's glare I lingered for a while Mischievously, Reflecting on the sunlit byways As yet, untraveled Where Man, one day May gingerly, Set foot. Soaking in the Rings And saturated in immensity I'm delighted to see And hear, and sense The Great Cosmic Kindness A latent, hidden Force Uplifting and yet sobering That calls us...
I have stood on the surface of Mars and seen, high in the sky, at sunset a tiny star, bright but small reminding me, in all its pale blue fragility of the smallness of Man. We are dreamers, you and I, fellow travelers, for a while puzzling out, musingly, the greatest quest ever conceived. I love Life, and the gift given to us, short-lived creatures, to ponder the vast Universe....
