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.
