I apologize for my recent absence. I have been writing for a living! I mean, wow! Writing and earning money has always been a dream of mine. I’m still not making money hand over fist, but hey, it is still being paid for doing something I am passionate about.
To show my appreciation for your patience, I’m giving you a video that is truly inspirational. Back in the 1980s, Carl Sagan encouraged NASA to turn one of the Voyager spacecraft around to face Earth for one last portrait of our home.
The resulting photograph was amazing.
There, suspended in a sunbeam, was Earth just a pale blue dot against the blackness of space.
That picture and Carl Sagan’s interpretation of it have shaped my values about humanity and our role in the universe. It’s a hauntingly beautiful picture.
Please enjoy the video and know I am still here and I will write as much as I can.
Thank you for taking time out of your busy lives to visit and read my blog. It means the world to me and so do you. Shirley
