Flight in the Vast Cosmo
While harvesting, we love to imagine flying into the cosmos and looking at the Earth from afar: a tiny speck of dust suspended in a ray of sunshine.
On this little planet, everyone we love, everyone we know, everyone we’ve heard of, have lived their lives.
All of our joys and sorrows are found here.
Religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, as well as every hunter and gatherer, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and plebeian, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful son, inventor and explorer, every preacher of morality, every corrupt politician, every “superstar”, every “supreme commander”, every saint and sinner in the history of our species has lived here, on this little blue and white dot suspended in the immense space.
Thinking of flying in this vast cosmic arena, possibly with a glass of wine, leads us to think about the beauty and fragility of life, paradoxically bringing us back down to earth.
