I see infinity.
I see a blue-black sky that goes on forever, goes on beyond my comprehension. I see an abyss that holds wonders of color so distant that, despite their massive heat and vibrancy, their light has still not come to where I am. My eyes stretch with my imagination to catch the smallest glimmer of a nebula, a star nursery, a galaxy. I lift my hand to touch. I lift my heart, just because one day I believe that I will see.
Imagine the big picture view of the universe. The color, the amazing variety, the power, the calm and thunder of a system that knows itself, the silence . . . all of these at once can be imagined only as a feeling. What wisdom, what wonder, what fun and joy − to see the universe like an infinite, omniscient garden.
When I look at the sky at night, I see stars and the black abyss that holds them.
I also see as much as I can imagine.
