NIGHT SKY

“Ralph Waldo Emerson once asked what we would do if the stars only came out once every thousand years. No one would sleep that night, of course. The world would create new religions overnight. We would be ecstatic, delirious, made rapturous by the glory of God. Instead, the stars come out every night and we watch television.” ~ Paul Hawkens

How sadly true is this? I’m always saying to my husband at odd moments: “Wow. We live on a spinning planet in a GALAXY!” The very thought of it throws me into awe and silences my mind. This is usually a wonderful relief. ~Cricket
