What happened on May 29?
Who hasn’t dreamed of reaching the top of the world’s most famous mountain, honestly?
All the way to the top of Mount Everest.
Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay become the first people to reach the summit of Mount Everest on this day in 1953. An upward climb driven by inner hope.
Not Bob Hope (born today in 1903), but sheer power of the mind. All the way Up!
Yes. Up. Like in the movie “Up” by Pixar (released today in 2009).
Also released on this day, in 1886: the first-ever ad for Coca Cola by its inventor, pharmacist John Pemberton.
Do you fancy some tunes about ‘hope’ and going ‘up’? How about an imaginary duet by
Noel Gallagher (*1967) and Mel B (*1975)? How would that sound, hmmm?
Imagination is a beautiful thing. Especially when combined with the music of Spain’s composer Isaac Albeniz (*1860). Or texts from comedian Sarah Millican (*1975).
It can surely take your mind sky-high just as much as the Discovery space shuttle reached unbelievable heights in 1999, docking at the International Space Station on this day!
And we’re wrapping up with another unbelievable achievement: Laverne Cox (*1972) went through a full transformation of body and soul. From man to woman.
Getting inspired is so much fun!
