Did you know.. when I was little I wanted to become a spaceship pilot? Obviously like a lot of kids. Then I got into diving and I thought being a deep sea diver on shipwrecks would be kind of neat. Especially on those with some sort of treasure.
As I found out shortly, when you dive those shipwrecks you have to give the treasure away.. hmm.. it can get a bit tricky legally. And it takes forever to get anywhere in a spaceship because, well, speed of light ain't that productive. So you never get to have any fun, really, because you're never going to get anywhere fun.
So, obviously, the only way open to my instant gratification-geared self was music.
It is hard for me to get perspective on things. I tend to focus on what I have not accomplished yet, and where I need to be, rather than where I am at the moment. As much as I have become much more of a 'glass half-full' person - well definitely more of that than your average Russian, I am sure - I am still very much a restless little Gypsy, always looking over that next hill.
The best way for me to gain perspective, without losing what I have, is traveling. I am guessing it is like that for many people.
Speaking of perspective, I came across this video below. I think it's pretty brilliant. I have at least two songs at the moment that speak of astronomy and mention planets, spaceships and constellations in some ways. Let's see: Orion, Gravity...hmmm...:)
And then there's always dessert - as big as an asteroid!
