Eclipse

All that you touch
All that you see
All that you taste
All you feel.
All that you love
All that you hate
All you distrust
All you save.
All that you give
All that you deal
All that you buy
Beg, borrow or steal.
All you create
All you destroy
All that you do
All that you say.
All that you eat
And everyone you meet
All that you slight
And everyone you fight.
All that is now
All that is gone
All that’s to come
And everything under the sun is in tune
But the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

Pink Floyd, Eclipse

World’s Best View

ESO/Yuri Beletsky

 This literally is the best view in the world.  It’s the galactic core of our own Milky Way Galaxy, as seen from the Paranal Observatory.  You are looking straight out into the cosmos and across the center of your own galaxy.  And you thought the Blue Ridge Parkway was impressive?  From there, you can see for miles.  From here, you can see for light years.

“Never once in my life did I ask God for success or wisdom or power or fame. I asked for wonder, and he gave it to me.”

― Abraham Joshua Heschel
