Kirk's chair

Editor's Note - We have known Laura for over 10 years as a computer systems integration business owner, entrepreneur, and prolific writer.

I never thought that just sitting in a chair had the power to change a mood.  That changed for me when I sat in Captain Kirk’s command chair from the Starship Enterprise and I instantly bubbled up with joy and laughter.  All the blah feelings that had been hovering around me all morning instantly disappeared the moment I saw the chair and the command bridge set across the room.

I guess you now know my secret.  I am a Trekkie.  I’ve been one since the late 60′s and the passion for the idealism of Star Trek has never really left me.  Yes, I wanted to be an astronaut.  Yes, I believe that there are incredible things in the universe to explore and yes, my mood completely changed as soon as I sat in the chair!  My husband took me to Kennedy Space Center to see the Star Trek exhibit and I was having one of those days where I could not seem to shift into a happy place.  I wanted to but I could not seem to switch it on.  This seemed very strange for me since I really wanted to go to the exhibit plus I love going to the Space Center because you get to meet astronauts!
