I still feel awe when I can find a clear night and I can see the Milky Way stretch across our sky. Or when I see the vistas of the planets in our system and how wondrous is our one little system, with our one little star, and one life supporting planet (for our needs anyway) and then I realize that there are so many stars in the sky that I can see and that for each of those, there is probably a galaxy as big as the Milky Way that I can’t see.
We are less than twinkles in the darkness, less than sands on the beach. Space is so very vast and the scope of that is of such a magnitude to beggar comprehension.
And for all that, one and all, we are individuals in some unique respect.
We are drops in the largest sea, yet each and every one of us can be important to someone and loved and each of us can make our world a better place and ourselves better people.
If that isn’t awesome and magical, I don’t know what is.
And I am so glad when I get to share that with my daughter around the camp fire.
