Scene

I enjoy the Astronomy Picture of the Day on a 'gosh-wow' level, but today's image of the sky over the ruins of the city of Ephesus is just beautiful in its own right.

Friday. Made it through another week at the bread-and-butter factory.

What's the especially bright white spot near the horizon, I wonder?

The picture seems to be saying, "Build all the temples you want. In the end, their majesty is dwarfed by the heavens."

this moving skyscape features Jupiter above the southeastern horizon and the marbled streets of the ancient port city of Ephesus, so I'm betting on Jupiter.

The picture seems to be saying, "Build all the temples you want. In the end, their majesty is dwarfed by the heavens." TO me, it says, "We're waiting for you, once you get finished messing around down there."

Okay, but are you thinking, "You're welcome to come live with us whenever you're ready," or, "We dare you to come here, punks"?

Yes!

The space is there, the opportunity is there, the resources are there, but only the ones bold enough to face up to the risks will get them. As they said of the westward migration, the cowards never left, and the weaklings died along the way. If we can't face up to a fight, we don't belong there.

You turned me onto the Astronomy Pic website a while back, and I appreciate it even more every day. This is a very cool picture and helps me remember just how small we are.

Hugs.

Who's small?
Small? Hell, we're HUGE! We can visualize a whole flippin' universe, and what we can see, sooner or later, we reach!

If power is an illusion, weakness is one, too. Never allow anyone to make you feel small, not even yourself. Humble, maybe, but never small!
