the art of beauty and war

After being in NYC well over two years now, its rather surprising that its taken us this long to visit the intrepid.  Whilst i found so much appreciation for the beauty of the craftsmanship, I still developed a terrible taste in my mouth on the death and sorrow these machines of war have brought to men, women and children around the globe.  

I am totally aware of the counter argument that they were used to help free people and let them live - but that taste still remains nether-less. The sombre mood of the weather was a perfect setting for this visit.  The space shuttle 'Enterprise' housed on the flight deck was by far the highlight.  Being dwarfed by this incredibly large man made object that has escaped the earths atmosphere into space was awe inspiring.  May the future be more of these endeavors of reaching for the stars than the ones that drop bombs.
