I’d love to hear from you!

There are approximately 400 billion stars in our Milky Way galaxy, which is about 120,000 light years across. I don’t really have the capacity to wrap my head around those kind of numbers. I just have a sense that it’s really (REALLY) big. In the face of that sort of vastness there is a temptation to start feeling very, very small and insignificant. But that is only possible when I forget that I am a part of all of it. We are all literally made of star dust. We live our entire lives in a connected universe. When I look up into the vast expanse of the night sky I don’t feel small. I feel awe-struck. The fact that I’m here at all is miraculous. I’m in the mood to celebrate!
