Sometimes all it takes is a little perspective. There we were all alone at almost 4,000 feet atop Jay Peak Resort. The sun setting, stars coming out, skies darkening, it was all coming together. At that moment in time I would be willing to bet there were only a handful of people in the entire state of Vermont who had a better view then we did. When it finally got dark enough for the Milky Way to be visible, the grand view began to imerge.
Clearly we were the ones being looked down on from far away stars in far away galaxies. We see our selves as being so big and powerful, and always in control. Suddenly all that changes when you put it all into the perspective of what we know vs. what we think we know. Spend a few nights under the stars all alone away from the "real world" and you will also begin to see things in a different light.
Some things you just need to see first hand to believe or really comprehend. I wish I could convey into words my experience when I am all alone at the top of a mountain gazing out into the center of the galaxy with a sea of stars over head and what seems like the entire world below me. The best I can do to put you in my shoes is to share an image with you.
