“Lindbergh left Long Island in 1927; Thumbed his nose at gravity; And climbed into the heavens. When he returned to earth that night everything changed; For the pilot and the planet, everything was rearranged. We’re a pretty mixed up bunch of crazy human beans; It’s written on our rocket ships and in early cave wall scenes. How does it happen, how do we know, who sits and watches, who does the show? Some people love to lead and some refuse to dance. Some play it safely, other take a chance. Still it’s all a mystery; This place we call the world; Where most live as oysters; While some become pearls.” by Jimmy Buffett, Oysters and Pearls
