Every star shows us another way of seeing the earth.


  1. Pretty cool thought!

    Isiah 40:26
    Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.

    Always great thought provoking aphorism's

  2. Many of them see it from the remote past. Maybe some of them haven't started seeing the Earth yet. Some of them see us after their extinction...
    OK, my reflections on it don't make much sense, but I enjoyed very much your aphorism. Thanks for the inspiration, I will continue thinking about it today.

  3. That leaves us endless possibilities and opportunities for a beautiful social change if each star translates into the best that that star could be.

  4. I loved this one--but then, I have always loved stars and wondered about their mystery. Just beautiful!

  5. Here in Arizona the stars are especially brilliant. If I can't sleep at night, I will go outside and gaze up at them. I will be reminded of your post the next time I am restless.

  6. oh. how pretty marty. :)

    your aphorisms are pretty. :)

    i still don't know what aphorism means..

  7. and is another little glimmer of hope.

  8. In our galaxy or the whole universe?

    Stars we can see with the unaided eye or those that require the best telescope man has ever made?

    Unseen stars that are accellerating so fast away from us that we will never see their light?

    ‘ Every star’ is an all-encompassing term that no man could ever even imagine let alone see by.

    We do not need to 'see our Earth' in any way other than by her ground under our feet, her air we breathe, her bounty we eat and her water we drink. When we respect the Earth for what she is then we can look to the stars from where she came.
