In Search of the Good Ride

So here I am searching about tumblr for the same things I search for elsewhere -- something interesting. I'm a Water Tiger in the Chinese zodiac, and that pretty much sums me up. I am a hopeless, sometimes hopeful, romantic; which means I spend a lot of time walking around quiet & alone. Which is not to say there isn't a universe exploding inside my head. It's just that there seem to be so few people out there that see it, or I should say, get it. Maybe you do. If you have something interesting to show or tell, please share.

The Hubble Extreme Deep Field
The Hubble Extreme Deep Field is the most distant image of the Universe ever created. Its diameter is one tenth the width of the full moon, its area is one 30 millionth of the entire sky. Within this field of view there are more than 5000 galaxies, 600 trillion stars and 50 quadrillion planets and moons. The light from the most distant visible objects was created more than 13 billion years ago, when the Universe was only 5% of it’s current age. This photograph is a slice of infinity, proof of the immense scale of reality.

I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.

I don’t understand why when we destroy something created by man we call it vandalism, but when we destroy something by nature we call it progress.
