Every day I am reminded that each of us humans has so much potential for good deeds in this world.
I am also reminded that each of us is just a spec of dust within the grand scheme of things in this beautiful, mysterious universe. We are connected. We are star dust. We are golden.
No, I haven't been smoking anything or taking mind altering drugs... It's the weekend and I'm procrastinating on housework.
I find weekends or vacations are great times for reflection and deep blonde thoughts. While on vacation this month, I visited family members up north. Well, Sudbury is as north as we have migrated.
Armed with my new digital camera, I took plenty of photographs on the bumpy flight up, during the enjoyable visit with a geriatric cat, her humans and on a excursion to Science North.

I was educated and amused by the exhibits of rock, bones and pooh.
|Goofing it up with Mr. Bones. We're all the same inside.|
|Pooh samples. Everybody poops.|
I was amazed by the Hubble 3D IMAX movie.
I sat in the theatre with my family and other viewers. While wearing 3D glasses (and likely looking a bit goofy), I watched, agape as we followed the astronauts in their shuttle launches, earthly orbits and on their space walks.
With the aid of a deep, wide space lens on the Hubble telescope and some computer animation, I travelled millions of light years and floated into a star nursery to witness what astronomers believe looks like the birth of new stars.
That is deep - and far out.
Thanks for joining me on this little trip. If you like my writing style, you may want to read The Year of the Rabbit, a novel about Fate, Family and Forgiveness.
