STAR GAZER




Ralph Waldo Emerson once asked what we
would do if the stars only came out once
every thousand years.  No one would sleep
that night, of course.  The world would become
religious overnight.  We would be ecstatic, delirious,
made rapturous by the glory of God.  Instead,
the stars come out every night, and we watch television.”

  1. Not me. :) There's a lunar eclipse this weekend. Last one until 2014.

  4. Paul Hawken's an interesting guy too; environmentalist, author, entrepreneur; a man who has dedicated his life to the study and practice of sustainability.
