    Watching TV documentaries about the Big Bang

    and hand growth, evolution of the universe, is great, a great way to learn much of the theories expounded about how things came about. Whether you believe mans ideas, or read spiritual tomes like the holy bible is a personal choice thing, still it is fascinating.

    Do You Ever.....

    ....just stare up at the sky on a clear night. It's amazing just to see all the stars and wonder what is truly up there. It makes me realize how we are just a speck of dust and not all that important when it comes to the universe. I could just stare for hours and let my mind...

    The Universe

    Looking at the sky is amazing at night. Being able to see the images that the Hubble telescope transmits is even more amazing. We are just a small little speck in this universe. It's just fascinating.

    A Beauty That Never Ends

    A beauty so mysterious, so much for us to discover and so much to see. Just to look up and out to admire just the minimum of what we can see. We can only imagine, until the day we can travel beyond our Galaxy.

    The more I pay attention to life on this planet,

    and what I perceive as the universe, I cannot help but acknowledge my limits and be in awe at all the power that's before me. It makes me happy that I am also a part of that power. It also makes my hunger to know even more powerful.
