On Time and Space

The Sun sheds light on another day

Earth circles and spins

Calendar turns to new year

Nothing as before

.

n.b. In some respects we are back at the beginning, but this is not so. This solar system has been moving through the Universe whilst our blue planet has rotated on its axis and circumnavigated the Sun. We are at a place we have not been before and we will never return. The saying, “Never go back” is spurious advice; we cannot as “back” no longer exists. Forward is all there is.

.

See how fast the new year goes? It is already the 3rd day.

Constellation of Orion and other stars visible in the Northern Hemisphere in winter

Stars light years away

Illuminate our night sky

Blind to our being

n.b. Our year, the circuit of this planet around our star in 365 days is unique to our situation in this solar system, if not the Universe. When we look out into space it is awe-inspiring to consider that vastness and our tiny place within it. Happy new year fellow travellers.
