Before mankind explores other worlds in the vastness of space it will be much better to make one called Earth The Ideal Place. Otherwise whatever problems are not resolved here at home will only follow mankind everywhere it may happen to roam. _____
From "The Quatrains" - ongoing writings since the early '90's.
pictures from this new telescope unveiled glimpses of an early universe in spirals clusters and clouds of colour amidst an ever-changing luminescent haze stretched across the bespeckled vastness of black; a cosmic dance of light through time and space both answering and posing countless potentials

While the world is asleep They'll lie still and we won't disturb them. & When they awake, They'll think it was all a dream By the time we finish explaining what took us so long to get back
