The Moon’s Trees
In 1971 Stuart Roosa orbited the moon
on Apollo 14 with some 400 seeds packed
away in his personal kit, orbiting too.
The seeds were: loblolly pine, redwood,
sweetgum, sycamore and douglas fir.
They were germinated back on earth
and planted all over the world.
Some were planted beside
their earthbound counterparts.
After more than 20 years, there’s
no discernible difference between
the two classes of trees.
Some of the trees are no longer alive.
Roosa is buried in section 7A of
Arlington National Cemetery.
Even with the intricate machinery,
the trees didn’t like what the
moon is supposed to do.

Book Reading and Signing on Saturday, Feb 15th from 11am-1pm at Tybrisa Books.
Visit Tybrisa Books and meet local author LB Sedlacek as she debuts her newest book, The Mailbox of the Kindred Spirit.
The Mailbox of the Kindred Spirit is real. It is the inspiration for LB’s story about Ernie and Melody who meet at a young age at a Golf Club in the mountains of North Carolina where he works and where her mother works. They grow up and grow apart and she moves to Ocean Isle Beach. Eventually he comes to a place where he tries to connect with her again. The mailbox plays an important part in their story.
The mailbox is set up beyond almost the last set of sand dunes. It’s tucked away behind one. There’s a couple of benches where you can sit and watch the fishing boats or the tides roll in and out. The first time she went to the mailbox it was so late it got dark. It was quite the moving experience.
LB, author of the locally set mystery “The Glass River,” hopes you enjoy this new story – it’s somewhat of a love story with a tiny bit of poetry thrown in. It is near and dear to her heart!
