Reason To Blog
Have been deliberately ensuring I am un-googleable for all these years. I value my privacy highly. But one evening in Marine Parade changed all that - my first Sidewalk Astronomy session with my first telescope. Those astonished looks. Kids describing frantically to their parents what they just saw. Grown ups behaving as if they saw the Moon for the first time. "Wow!". "Oh!". "Awesome!". "Yaaar!". Pure Magic.
