a thousand words

Seven hundred and forty-six million miles: The sight of Earth from Saturn.

May this view bring you peace, perspective and patience for the times
when words won’t reach.


  1. Now that is putting a bit of perspective on things…

  3. Thank you. Just returned from ER after anxiety attack, a new occurrence for me. I have been down in the dumps since Nov 9th, despite usually being an optimistic person.
    Your post reminds me of how insignificant all our little dealings are here on this tiny rock.
    I must strive to remember that all we have is this very moment, and to tend to the garden around me.
    Thank you, again.

  4. Like Horton hears a who. We really are just a speck in time and space!

  5. O yes, I think of how infinitely small we are often. It’s pretty terrifying.

  6. How small and how vast–beyond all limits, nothing left out.

  7. Eckhart Tolle has a beautiful quote: “Inner space is outer space.” When I take in the stars and let myself feel the awareness of the space I recite that. I choose to believe that when we die our souls reconnect with every single thing in the whole universe, I think that that is what is daunting about it for me.
    Happy New Year!

  8. I so love the feeling of personal insignificance! Free at last!
