  1. Funny you should put that image up. I view you as Cygnus-X1 to Bill’s, well, Bill. FYI, ‘Rocinante’ is the name of Don Quixote’s horse.

    Cygnus X-1, from Rush:

    To telescopic eye
    The star that would not die

    All who dare
    To cross her course
    Are swallowed by
    A fearsome force

    Through the void
    To be destroyed
    Or is there something more?
    Atomized, at the core
    Or through the Astral Door,
    To soar…

    I set a course just east of Lyra
    And northwest of Pegasus
    Flew into the light of Deneb
    Sailed across the Milky Way

    On my ship, the ‘Rocinante’
    Wheeling through the galaxies,
    Headed for the heart of Cygnus
    Headlong into mystery

    The x-ray is her siren song
    My ship cannot resist her long
    Nearer to my deadly goal
    Until the Black Hole,
    Gains control…

    Spinning, whirling,
    Still descending
    Like a spiral sea,

    Sound and fury
    Drowns my heart
    Every nerve
    Is torn apart…

    To be continued…
