It's as wide as the universe Carlos...did you forget that lesson in school already?

:)

So true, and speaking of the Milky Way, don't you think it used to show up more in the night sky?

How big do we let our universe be?

Carlos Gesmundo said...

I was reminded of the need to be aware of the lenses we wear and through which we view--and interact with--the world around us.

Thanks, Ralf. And good wishes.

Carlos Gesmundo said...

Sometimes I make the mistake of thinking it's only as wide as I see it.

Thanks, Amity.

Carlos Gesmundo said...

fourwinds--it's easier to locate at night, as far I know, when the moon is absent, especially late summer at the lakeplace.

Thanks.

Carlos Gesmundo said...

Hi Sandy-- I think as big as we want it to be and as we are capable of making it so.

Thanks.

:) That must indeed be a wonderful realization to have made!

Rinkly Rimes said...

So simple and yet full of wonderment.

Carlos Gesmundo said...

I suppose, from time to time, we need some reminder to put things in perspective.

Thanks, Aayushi.

Carlos Gesmundo said...

Thank you, Rinkly Rimes!

Mojo said...

This is simply brilliant. And brilliantly simple.

How do we forget?

Carlos Gesmundo said...

Good question, Mojo. For me it was hubris.

Thank you for your kind words.
