A friend in Upstate New York just sent me the link ( below) to this video, “Most beautiful Hubble images of the universe space”. Set to the song “Ryan Farish – Full Sail” from the album “Beautiful”, the photographs of nebuale, galaxies and stars are mysterious and compelling.I was so taken by the wonder of the universe beyond our own small planet, I hurried on over to the Hubble site. I traveled into the Carina Nebula, saw the aurora of Saturn, the shadows of three moons on rainbow-hued Jupiter, and the pink-hued cloud tops of Venus.
Sometimes I feel small and insignificant, a mere pinprick on the universe, when I look at photographs like these. But today I feel large and awestruck, honoured to be part of such a glorious unfolding of unimaginable life and wonder.
I haven’t a clue what other life forms on other planets look like. I don’t have the hubris of believing us alone in the universe. But I am thrilled to be part of this cosmic dance.
