when you stand in our bathroom at night with its curved black ceiling speckled with hundred of fibre optic pinpoints of light; and look down into the shiny black floor tiles, you get the wonderful sensation of floating in space and a weightlessness and clarity from the silence and the sense of infinity all around.
I imagine for a brief moment the ever-expanding universe with its countless galaxies and unfathomable numbers of stars and planets.
Then take an introspective look at our small life on our speck in the infinitely varied and technicoloured, ever-changing, ever evolving universe; and find peace.
This moment in time, the one in which man occupies a little blue and green ball of rock is but a breath in the universal expanse.
We should cram it full of friendship and joy, it is too short a moment to squander. After we are gone – I wonder what magic will fill the tiny void our absence will create.
