Sometimes we need a little reminder, that we’re not as smart as we think we are.  I’m getting nowhere with today’s Cryptoquote.  Sorry to disappoint you, friends.  I’ll try again later.     YUR

Okay.  Here we go.

The arts and sciences are avatars of human creativity.”   —   Mae Jemison

(Now that I’ve done it, I find it hard to explain why I had so much difficulty with it.  Just one of those days, I guess.  Maybe, if I knew who Mae Jemison was/is . . .  Nice quote!  Thanks for the comments and clues.  I did – finally – get it, on my own . . . after going to a pencil.  I shouldn’t be so proud.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    It took alot of white out but I finally got it.

    I had trouble with this one too but finally figured it out.

    Think of an African-American female astronaut. Hope that helps!

    I didn’t have any problems with this one. As a hint: there is a THE in it.

    It was not intuitive. AVATARS seemed farfetched, but it was right.

    After Kelly and Bob, and whoever said it took a lot of white-out, I took another shot, using a pencil – with a good eraser – and got everything but the first letter of the last name. By process of elimination I figured it was either G or J. I Googled the quote and saw Jemison. I saw hal, Art and Ron’s comments when I came to edit this post. It is definitely not a gimme, but I shouldn’t have had this much trouble with it. I need to go work out. And then maybe have a few beers.

    PS. Besides being an astronaut . . . the girl is cute!
