Favorite TweetStuff (07/22/11) ~ Enjoy!

Every Friday, I gather items from my Tweet stream which are amusing, odd, beautiful, inspiring, and this week, somewhat nostalgic. Today I am grateful for air conditioning — and longing for autumn! But I digress! ;) Enjoy!

It’s About Space…

@pourmecoffee Happy anniversary, moon landing. @wired has awesome photo essay of Apollo training

@heykim WOW! Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon 42 years ago today
[SEO: Includes the text of the speech written for Nixon in case something went horribly wrong (as in, if these men were unable to return to the command capsule orbiting the moon), and the “complete and original” video of the first moon walk.]

@petapixel Beautiful — Time-lapse shot from the International Space Station

@pourmecoffee Atlantis on the way home, taken from ISS

The Rest of the Best

@Quotes4Writers “All art consists of surmounting difficulty to produce beauty.” ~ William Allen White

@AnnTran_ 25 Stunning Photos of Bora Bora
[SEO: If ever any place on earth could be viewed as “paradise”, Bora Bora must be in the running. I’m not a summer person at all (especially this week!), but these pictures truly are awesome.]

@soulseedz “Keep your mind on what matters, which is mostly standing still and learning to be astonished, which is gratitude.” ~ Mary Oliver

@larryczerwonka “The willingness to share does not make one charitable; it makes one free.” ~ Robert Brault

@goodthingz Creatively Placed Street Art
[SEO: “The most creative street art isn’t the kind that’s randomly spray painted on some freeway wall, but rather, it’s the kind that stops you in your tracks and gives you an experience.”]

@Quotes4Writers “Writing is my vacation from living.” ~ Eugene O’Neill

@AmazingPics Most Beautiful And Amazingly Captured Wild Animals Photography
[SEO: These are gorgeous animals, colorful and graceful. The most bizarre one, however, is the kangaroo that looks like it has a baby hippo in its pouch! How did that happen?!]

@Tamavista “The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it.” ~ C.C. Scott

@GuruQuotes “If you don’t know where you are going, any path will get you there.” ~ Lewis Carroll

@mnt_psychology Urge To Imitate Is So Ingrained, Odds Of Winning At Rock-Paper-Scissors Are Higher With Eyes Closed
[SEO: News you can use! ;)]

@soulseedz “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” ~ Einstein

@petapixel Music made entirely from camera sounds (video)

@pourmecoffee Billionaire sheikh carves his name in desert so big it can be seen from SPACE
[SEO: Speechless….]
