• Coldplay: Every Teardrop is a Waterfall

    If you’ve been following the band, you’d probably tell by the title of the post what this is all about.

With the help of Dad, I loved setting it up on our roof deck back home, especially when the sky’s clear and the moon’s bright. You never what you’re missing until you observe celestial objects in the sky through a telescope.
