Star journey -- 12 days 'til Christmas

"Star journey," today's 5 x 7 #watercolor
Star-dust...humans, and all creation are stardust... composed of the scientific stuff of the universe.
Is it any wonder that we are also composed spiritually of creation, that we gaze at stars, that we are drawn to stars, journeying as they journey?
This season commemorates a star, its journey, and a journey it beckoned humans to follow, 2,000 years ago, and since. We are on a star journey.
"Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at the stars because we are human?" 
--Neil Gaiman, Stardust
"The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself."
--Carl Sagan

  1. Yep, we are all made of the same stuff. Great work, you have certainly been on an art tear since you retired.
