My Eyes Fall Gently Shut
Short Story by: Emmett Spain
Working as a part-time lab assistant was my first real job out of college. Before then I had stacked shelves at our local general store, and even worked the land for a time, doing odd jobs as a way to save up money for books and tuition during the break between semesters. Even back then, working just to squirrel away a few dollars, my end goal was clear. I was to be a scientist, just like my father. Astronomy was his field, and so was it mine. I nurtured dreams of working for NASA, dreams that would—many years later—be fulfilled.
