Home Sweet Home: The Big Picture

Our galaxy, Home Sweet Home

Our galaxy, Home Sweet Home

So how is your week going? Good, I hope. It’s always good to get a little perspective, so here is snapshot of Home Sweet Home-our galaxy. Gee, where’s our house? As it turns out, our sun and earth are located in a minor arm of the galaxy, about one quarter of the way (25, 000 light years) out.


We don’t have photos of the galaxy, because we cannot get far enough back to get a clear picture. And that is my point today. A lot of things seems confusing to us because we can’t get far enough back to get a clear picture. Step back now and then and do not worry if you don’t know everything-you probably know enough.


By the way, some people get panicky when they think about the size of the universe-Oh no, I’m so small! I’m adrift in icy darkness! No, you are not. Everything is connected. You are part of the whole glorious picture, you are part of Life. And isn’t it beautiful?

Beautiful Spiral Galaxy, Our Home
