Insignificant significance

That brightest blue dot at the bottom right... that's us as photographed by the camera of the Cassini spacecraft looking from behind Saturn's rings. A tiny blue dot encompassing every life, death, worry, jealousy, fear, hate, love, of little planet Earth... Nothing much really. We better just get on with it.

Good beer (and pole dancing-ladies)

Adm said...

Tell Eva I miss her, wherever she is (though I'll cope)

Edrig said...

Eh... pole-dancing ladies

Funny language

We are small and insignificant in the greater scheme of things ;-)

Andrew MacLaren-Scott said...

If there is a greater scheme of things

Aileen said...

Heck you talk such garbage sometimes Andrew

Edrig said...

Who is Aileen?

Andrew said...

She's not your type Edrig

CherryPie said...

Ah yes there is a greater scheme of things... It is called the universe!!

Andrew MacLaren-Scott said...

Bigger, yes, Greater, hmm...

Aileen said...

We should have a chat Cherie

CherryPie said...

I would like that Aileen ;-)

Edrig said...

We should have a chat Cherie (a dance even?)

CherryPie said...

Well Erdig I am not sure you would be comfortable with my thoughts... Sadly I gave up dancing a long time ago.

It's a truly spectacular image.

Amazing how puffed up we can be.

Nothing much you say? I beg to differ.....

My life, on that tiny blue dot, has been a privilege. I'm so grateful for the outstanding people I met (some never seen but so appreciated). And it includes you, Andrew. Thank you for being there, real or not.....
