Planet Earth

It’s no secret of mine that most of my daydreams consist of the open air and everything that extends beyond it.  This video made me feel small, but also made realize how incredibly large our world is, how insignificant some of our problems are in the big picture.  Go ahead and turn the volume low on the video above, and pair it with this monologue by Carl Sagan.  It’s said that he spoke these words after seeing this photograph of Earth, the farthest photograph ever taken of Earth, by the Voyager 1 space probe.
