There’s something about the idea of the Universe that I’ve always loved. When I think about it in all of it’s glory and vastness, I am struck by a sense of awe at being a part of something so incredible. I guess that’s why, when things are getting on top of me, I like to watch this video or sometimes I’ll visit the NASA web site and browse through the images of distant stars and nebulae. I think appreciating that I exist in such an amazing place makes me feel empowered and strong. I can only conclude that the Universe contains limitless possibilities and that I am part of that. That gives me courage. My problems will still be there when I finish, but I come away with a sense of perspective, knowing that I can cope. I love these images. They show me home. They give me hope.
