Back of Card DESCRIPTION
“I guess it shouldn’t surprise us to find ourselves linked to the stars. Every atom of gold or silver jewelry was created in supernovas. The water we drink, the air we breathe, the ground we walk, the complicated pouch of fluids and salts and minerals and bones we are; all were forged in some early chaos of our sun; we are the sun’s way of thinking about itself. Outside, the night is a coliseum of stars. For a few moments, I sit and just behold those distant worlds; each one trembling, beautiful, and full of drama. Tonight they look closer than ever, and the darkness seems to burn with their small urgent lights.”
