Digital illustrationThe mystical beauty of the moon and clouds the other night got me to thinking, as I admittedly do so often, about the ephemeral and ethereal qualities of our species and the strangeness of our even existing. When Space looms so visibly vast over us and insists on reminding me how tiny and potentially insignificant I am, my life is, in the grand scheme of it all, I begin to have exactly the opposite reaction any sensible person might assume I would have. I think that, just possibly, if there can be no logic or extravagant purpose evident for the creation and continuation of our peculiar and oddball race, then we can’t have just appeared at random or even serendipitously–we must really have arrived here with at least some intended point. Being a thoroughly sideways creature myself in so many ways right from the start, I find it comforting to imagine that the very impossibility if explaining my reason for existing seems to argue for some small purpose. Foolish dream or actual conundrum, it makes stargazing that much more attractive on nights like these….Photo

    • Thanks, Christine. I got some really fun shots of the full (and waning) moon on last week’s trip that I couldn’t resist meditatingโ€”and drawingโ€”on one! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you! A bit of a departure for me, arising from fiddling around with different effects in one of the iPad art apps I’m learning, plus using the photo as a jumping-off point.

    • I’m pretty good at not knowing much, most of the time! ๐Ÿ˜‰ What I *do* know is that I am a very fortunate person, and glad to have so amazingly many love filled happy days. Hope you and Pete have a superb weekend, my love.

  1. Beautiful thoughts, beautifully expressed. As a fellow ‘thoroughly sideways creature’, I so agree that as insignificant as we may seem at time, there is a reason for our existence. XO โ™ฅ

    • Since we’re both so sideways, it’s no wonder we eventually bumped into each other out here, I guess! ๐Ÿ˜‰ As far as I’m concerned, that’s reason enough for existence; happiness abounds.
