Perspective

Where stars are born

A friend of mine online made a comment that caught my attention today. He said, "I love space; never fails to put things into perspective."

I think he was right. Looking at space reminds me of the grandeur that we exist in, of the power and magnitude of what's out there, and of the beauty of physics and nature. I get caught up in day-to-day things, the trivial stuff that seems to matter at the moment. When I was in college I remember thinking how magnificent the universe is, how studying it and learning more about it just gave me a larger appreciation for all things.

Chris was right; looking at space puts things in perspective. I like that.
