I’m going to keep this one short and sweet and to the point.
I started rewatching Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey the other day. I'm starting to think that this should be a new tradition every year.
My absolute favorite thing about it is how mind blowing the information is.
Mind blowing in a way that is interesting, fascinating, and inspiring.
Like that fact that every living creature in the world boils down to the same similar looking strands of DNA. The patterns or “code” within them may vary, but in essence we are all the same.
Neil DeGrasse Tyson says that science helps show that we are all one.
That was my mind blowing open.
“Stars die and reborn […] They get so hot that the nuclei of the atoms fuse together deep within them to make the oxygen we breathe, the carbon in our muscles, the calcium in our bones, the iron in our blood. All was cooked in the fiery hearts of long vanished stars. … The cosmos is also within us. We’re made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.”
Of awesome overload.
One major takeaway from all this? That we are all connected. So it’s kind of important to practice not only self-care but take care of all living beings in this world.
If you’re still not sure about it then you need to check it out, it’s on Netflix. If you don’t find it at least moderately interesting, you’re probably dead inside.
With that being said, I’ve made it a point to go outside more and explore in general.
So that’s where I’ll be this weekend, exploring the San Juan Islands.
Until next week,
