Truly yummy. There is something about the darkest night sky, winter solstice, like hanging over the edge of the universe, that wipes out any sense of self.
Great read! Love it! My favorite part:
Thank you for finding this!We are all profoundly separated and yet deeply connected at the same time. This is our fundamental truth. And just as Scrooge's initially frightening ghosts were actually messengers of hope, the deepest truths of science and the infinite night are there for us as well. What else can we do but live with compassion and reverence and joy.

Liked Jay K' s comment:
The realization that the night sky is made up of light shining from so many points in time all converging is almost as amazing as the points of light themselves. What a wonderful, amazing, connected world.

What's cool is how we are receiving of those star's light.
What's more cool is how we can drop that reception.

Thanks for sharing!
I was always interested in space. It puts into perspective how insignificant we are, yet connected. The sky is like a blanket indiscriminately covering us all! \
