ELLIE
I had an experience …. I can’t prove… I cant even explain it. But everything that I know as a human being, everything I am tells me that it was real. I was given something wonderful, something that changed me forever. A vision of the universe, that tell us undeniably how tiny and insignificant and how rare and precious we all are. A vision that tells us that we belong to something that is grater than are selves that we are not, that none of are alone. I wish.. I could share that.. I wish that everyone if even for one moment could feel that awe and humility and hope. But — that continues to be my wish.
