    How did we end up here on planet Earth?

    Why is life such a mystery ? We are born free yet trapped with a life into which we are born. I look up to the stars and feel such a connection. Like I belong somewhere else. Earth is not an easy place to survive.. I feel there are millions of earth's that support magnificent...

    It just fascinates me to look up at all these

    things. Stars, the planets, all the colors in them. How Earth is like a small stroke of paint on a giant canvas but yet Earth has so much more than that. Makes me think a lot about God.

    I'm extremely fascinated with black holes

    and the theories about them. I often wonder how it would feel to be up in space, to walk on the moon, to see what exists. I honestly get excited - and terrified just thinking about the multiverse. I often wonder about existence and how miniscule our planet truly is. I wonder...

    Venus and Mars all clumped together this morning and thinking how when I was a kid I was always looking at the stars and wondering ! I am 53 now, love astronomy but don't really look up as much as I use to. I am going to have to realign my priorities in the near future !
