Starry Sky

Isolated from the natural world, few of us nowadays stand silent beneath a starry sky that remains unblemished by artificial light. Yet the eternal nightly show is one of nature’s most subtle and moving experiences. It is a spectacle that arrives slowly, changes gradually, and then slips imperceptibly away, night after night, year after year, in utter silence. It is an experience our ancestors knew well, and it provoked in them, as it should in us, deep questions of meaning, of origins, and of destiny.
