With the state of politics at the moment, I doubt that I’m the only one feeling drained, exhausted, and somehow unclean on an existential level.
But I had an uplifting moment earlier to give back a sense of awe, wonder and perspective; reading an article about the Hubble Telescope getting a picture of a galaxy (NGC 6503) that’s so very isolated, being a lonely mote in the middle of a void tens of millions of lightyears across. Astronomy really is a humbling and yet uplifting area of discovery.
So, happy thoughts here in this thread (tag and bag things that try to drag it down):
What are the things that make you cheer, grin with glee, sigh with appreciation, or just feel like you’re connecting with your ideals instead of your fears?
