|"Stardust Dreams," 5 x 7 watercolor Christmas card|
Physically, in present tense, our earthly bodies are indeed composed of the chemistry of the stars. But they're not home.
Though the eons, earthbound, time-bound and death-bound humans have tried to seek safe homes in a troubled and world--witness stone-age caves, castles, walled cities or today's "gated" communities. But they have apparently also gazed at the stars seeking (worshiping) lasting homes, hoping for security and timeless life beyond.
Is not the real Christmas not a celebration of that seeking, of that hope, of that belief, that promise, in eternity as home, that there is more to life than this physical world and physical bodies?
Those are the stardust dreams, two days 'til Christmas.
