Carleen Hamilton wrote the first poem on a napkin, sitting in a coffee shop in Bermuda, on their honeymoon, Oct. 29, 1974. Oh, how I glowe   and grew to inconceivable brilliance in his loving fire. And we were called Sun and Moon. Complete life. Virtually every workday for the next 29 years, she wrote a poem on a napkin and packed it in her husband's lunch. And George Hamilton, director of the Fels Planetarium at the Franklin Institute, inspired by his new wife, her poetry, her devotion, and his own happiness, returned the kindness.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). An increase in income usually means an increase in responsibilities, but sometimes it actually means that people are starting to understand the value that was there all along. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You want to work smart instead of hard, but most times the work you do is both. Today will represent most times. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If the people you know are blending together in sameness, then try to make every person you know comfortable enough to bring their true self to the picture.

WASHINGTON - It had to happen: A start-up company is offering rides to the moon. Book your seat now - though it's going to set you back $750 million (it's unclear if that includes baggage fees). Led by heavy-hitter former NASA executives, the Golden Spike Co. would boldly go where humankind went 40 years ago, this time commercially, hawking tickets to foreign governments or space tourists. "Two seats, 750 each," said former NASA associate administrator Alan Stern on Thursday.

ST. LOUIS - With a string of gold albums, a hit TV series and his signature "Moon River," Andy Williams was a voice of the 1960s, although not the '60s we usually hear about. The singer - known for his easy-listening style and his wholesome middle-America appeal - was the antithesis of the counterculture that gave rise to rock 'n' roll. Williams' plaintive tenor, boyish features and clean-cut demeanor helped him outlast many of the decade's rock stars and fellow crooners, such as Frank Sinatra and Perry Como.

GAPYEONG, SOUTH KOREA - The Rev. Sun Myung Moon, best known for conducting mass weddings involving thousands of couples, was a self-proclaimed messiah, but he was at least as good at attracting dollars as he was at drawing converts. His Unification Church claims 3 million followers, though ex-members and critics put the number at no more than 100,000. There is no questioning the vastness of the business empire Moon created through his church: ventures in several countries from hospitals and newspapers to cars and sushi, and even professional sports teams and a ballet troupe.

GAPYEONG, South Korea - Unification Church patriarch Sun Myung Moon leaves behind children who have been groomed to lead a religious movement famous for its mass weddings and business interests - if family feuds don't bring down the empire. Moon, the charismatic and controversial founder of the church, died Monday at age 92 at a church-owned hospital near his home in Gapyeong County, northeast of Seoul, two weeks after being hospitalized with pneumonia, church officials said. Flags flew at half-staff at a Unification Church in Seoul as followers trickled in, some wiping away tears as they wondered what would happen to a movement defined for decades by the man who founded it in 1954.

By David Rothkopf The lodge at Camp Skoglund was an A-frame, red with white trim. It was the center of activity at the boys' camp, and on the night of July 20, 1969, it was unusually quiet. On most nights, the counselors would play music. Cream was popular that summer, and Iron Butterfly. Many of us would tap into our snack accounts to buy orange sodas and chips, and play games or just goof around. But on this night, everyone sat on the floor in a semicircle as a counselors fiddled with the rabbit-ear antenna on a black-and-white television as we squinted to discern Walter Cronkite's familiar face in the static.
