The Awe Inspiring Universe

COSMOS just unrolled another look at our universe which is too vast for our minds to take in. Beyond what we can fathom is the great dark sea beyond even how we measure time. It is truly something that makes us shiver as we are so small in it. Perhaps that is why people cling irrationally to their usual faith and practices and don’t try to embrace what cannot ultimately be held in comfortable arms. The host of COSMOS said flatly we can have a world that is small or a world that is excitingly large and filled with dangers. Most people go to the movies for such excitement. I choose to see the hubble telescope photos and think there are no words to the wonders presented. There are no predictive maps or even intuitions that can make it comfortable, but it is there to be accepted or negated. This is a multiple choice test for us. How will we answer?

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
