OUR PLACE IN THE COSMOS
I found this spectacular mountain shot on the web, but the mountains weren't identified. I'm assuming they're either in the Himalayas or the Andes. If you can get a sense of wonder and grandeur from a photo of those peaks, imagine what you'd feel if you were actually THERE. Anyway they seemed a good match for the Sagan quote.
Yeah, you can feel a bit like a Mayfly when you consider the unimaginable length of time from the Big Bang to now. But, also consider how many plants and animal species didn't survive. We're standing here. We survived and that's something. That's really something.
