Oh, where to even begin. I’m so utterly and completely intrigued by the Universe that it often hurts my brain to ponder the great unknown. I’m in awe. I love the idea of being a part of something so immense that it has no end. The mystery of the cosmos truly takes my breath away.
I can’t recall a time when I wasn’t mesmerized by the vastness of the Universe.
Since I don't have any plans to travel into outer space, how do I get my fix?
Visit a Planetarium- I’m lucky enough to have an incredible planetarium on the college campus right in my town. I welcome any opportunity to lean back, look up and learn more about the great beyond. Next on my list? A Black Holes show!
Books- I’ve been known to announce that in my next life I’ll be an astronomer or a professor of Quantum Physics. I’m fascinated by all the science surrounding a space I can’t even fathom.
Recently, I read...
The Universe Has Your Back by Gabrielle Bernstein. This book isn't specifically cosmic, but instead explores the idea that there is a Universal force always at work to help us out, if we let it. I love that!
You Are the Universe- discovering your cosmic self and why it matters by Deepak Chopra and Menas Kafatos. This one is filled with incredibly cool facts and explanations! I felt like I was in school again, in all the best ways!
The Milky Way - There aren’t many things I love more than the Milky Way. I vividly recall the first time I experienced this natural wonder. Even though I was shivering in the frigid night air, I couldn’t make myself go inside. As I stood gazing upwards...I was dumbfounded. Breathless and forever changed.
Few things have the power to affect me this deeply. The Milky Way gets me every time. (So does Paris, the view from the summit of a 14er and witnessing the birth of a baby)
If you haven't had the opportunity to see the Milky Way in person, go follow @milkywaychasers on Instagram. Or opt outside. Find a spot far away from city lights. Settle in and tip your eyes up. Prepare for a jaw drop:-)
Wish on a star - How long have I been doing this? Since I was a little girl. How long will I continue? Forever. There’s something magical about sending your wish out into the dark sky and placing your faith in the Universe. Like the classic song from Pinocchio..."When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are...anything your heart desires will come to you."
How do you feel about the Universe?
Thanks for reading. More tomorrow...
