everything emptying into white

And beware lest you raise your eyes to heaven, 

and when you see the sun and the moon and the stars,

all the host of heaven, you be drawn away

and bow down to them and serve them;

things that the Lord your God 

has allotted to all of the peoples under heaven.

Deuteronomy 4:19


"Come quick!" my husband called out to me from where he was standing on the back deck just a few nights ago. So we stared up into the night sky and watched Elon Musk's string satellites fly over our heads, over the rooftops of the revolutionary era town we live in, over the Atlantic ocean and off into the heavens beyond.

What a strange world we are living in. 

I thought of my grandmother who was born in 1898, and what her thoughts must have been when she got her first telephone or her first television. I thought of The Jetsons, that old space age cartoon I used to watch on Saturday mornings. I thought of my grandchildren and great grandchildren and how strings of lights commanding the skies will be as common to them as airplanes are to us now. 

I remembered walking the wood near my workplace earlier in the day. 

I remembered how beautiful it was there.

  1. What a sight that must have been! When you first posted about it, I had to Google it and find out what it is. Your blog title reminds me of the old Cat Stevens song "Into White".

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
