Every Friday I offer up the best of my Twitter stream, items that are beautiful, funny, inspiring, and sometimes odd. This was a tremendously busy week, lots to choose from. Enjoy!
Not Your Father’s Astronaut
@Cmdr_Hadfield “My Dad took me to the Canada Aviation & Space Museum when I was a kid. Amazing that today he will be there as I link-in from Earth orbit.”
@Cmdr_Hadfield “Good Morning, Earth! A Wednesday in space, time for 16 sunrises, a day of research work, and tonight Kevin hands me the spaceship’s keys.”
@Cmdr_Hadfield Rome, the Vatican, and the surrounding hills. I’m not certain you can make out the new pope from here, though.
[SEO: Tweeted within an hour of Pope Francis being named. The ISS is right on top of breaking news!]
Happy Pi Day!
@StephenBright Happy Pi Day! 5 ways to celebrate 3.14159 on Pi Day (via @USATODAY)

The Rest of the Best
@HealthyPlace “Truth becomes untruth if uttered by your enemy.” ~ George Orwell
@LillyAnn “A sense of humor is a key indicator of progress along the spiritual path. For real. Brilliance without humor is dogma.”
@twistedsifter Picture of the Day: Forces of Nature
[SEO: “FORCES OF NATURE Photograph by Martin Rietze ~ Alien Landscapes on Planet Earth. … In it we see the Sakurajima Volcano erupting with lightning. …”]
@zaibatsu “Don’t ask what the world needs, ask what makes you come alive. Then do that. The world needs people who have come alive.” ~ H.Whitman
@pourmecoffee There is an insanely detailed, pannable, zoomable interactive of the Sistine Chapel online
[SEO: Wow! The detail is so great you can study the mosaic patterns in the floor, as well as the dozens of individual paintings that run across the top of all four walls. Then there’s the ceiling! I could look at this for hours.]
@WritersNetGuide “Of course it’s happening inside your head, Harry. Doesn’t mean it isn’t real.” ~ Dumbledore
