space is a place

'In giving you are throwing a bridge across the chasm of your solitude.' - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Wisdom of the Sands. Antoine de Saint Exupéry (French pronunciation: [ɑ̃twan də sɛ̃tɛɡzypeˈʀi]) i just love that helpful pronunciation code!

antoine was not only a man of the air, he also gave the world the novel, 'the little prince.' hands down, this book will uplift the spirits with every page, every reading. antoine the aviator took much more to the skies than his airplanes, he took our minds.

other flyers in the arena of mind expansion were 'the jefferson airplane.' what a perfectly psychedelic band name. 'surrealistic pillow' was an amazing record and that album's hit, 'white rabbit' has been in many films. man, could grace slick sing. the band has 59 soundtrack credits and it keeps growing.
