lucky chicago...

Arthur Lane

I was checking out your site...Nice! I'm a Trekkie and one of my favorite shows is Star Trek Voyager. Great work on season 5... I was looking for your facebook page to like and noticed we had the same birth-date.. ;-) keep up the good writing......

Nick Sagan

Thanks, both of you!

Arthur, in case you haven't seen it, here's a link to surrealist Rene Magritte's "September 16" where the moon's out in front of the tree.


Just love that painting so I like to make sure fellow September 16thers know about it.


What a strange coincidence...my childhood friend was born on September 16th!

Anyhoo, that's a very touching pic. I'm sure he'd enjoy what you're doing for him if he were still with us!


Nick Sagan

Much appreciated, Eva!

Y'know, over the years I've noticed a fairly high concentration of fellow September babies. Might just be false pattern recognition on my part, but I imagine many conceptions happen over the December holidays.

Arthur Lane

@Nick- My thoughts also.
I am from the deep south (Alabama gulf coast) where December can be warm and not always cold enough for snuggling. My parents where in fact up north in December a year before my birth! Could be a Norman Rockwell pattern! lol

Arthur Lane

Sorry for the double post.
BTW.. Nice art work!


Great Father's Day gift for your dad and for Adler Planetarium. Tears to my eyes and wishes to be there to see and feel the show.


This is a great show for all the fathers in Chicago.
