Snapshots Of My World

A Journal of Thoughts, Photographs and Sketches

Thoughts on Distance 3

I took this photo last Winter. I loved the mood and light of the moment. Here’s hoping that this coming Winter won’t be that fierce.

A Thought:

The Universe is huge. Perhaps huge is an understatement. It is endless, incomprehensible and infinite in distance and span. Pondering on this certainly evokes wonder and mystery, but also a profound sense of insignificance, smallness and even threat at times.

I find that this kind of thinking or meditating reinforces in me my need for belonging, for place and for closeness. It’s then that my thoughts go to my home, my garden, my community, my village, this tiny piece of earth where people know me by name, and I am overwhelmed with a deep sense of gratitude. This is where my boat is moored in this vast expanse we call the Universe.

  2. A reflection we should, perhaps, all encompass.

    (love Oscar Wilde’s quote in your side column).


    • Thank you Vicki and glad you enjoyed the quote – Oscar Wilde is not everybody’s cup of tea, but I find him to be contentious and that’s what I enjoy about him. He’s certainly not run of the mill.

  3. So glad you have a slice of the universe where you are known and loved. That is such a blessing.
