The sky shows us traffic can be a danger or a sign of a vast complicated universe . The sight (second hand because it is too brilliant for our sight) of the small trajectory of the planet Venus across the great expanse of Sun keeps us aware of how dangerous and yet majestic the avenue of our solar system can be, with byways and motorways of cosmic proportions that could crush us like a child stepping in front of a fast moving truck. We are in danger, always on the curb, and enchanted by the vistas we see, unaware the looking even right or left won’t save us, should those many moving objects suddenly desire a route that crosses our own.
Venus will not pass this way again for many many years, and yet I cannot wonder what else will make a singular arc that reminds us it is a busy highway out there. We are small and insignificant in the traffic flow of time and space. It might not be prudent to do more than contemplate the neighborhood.
