Earthrise from the Moon


'My favorite photo is earthrise as seen from the moon. It's perfect. A great blue and green ball floating in vast black space, hanging right there in its orbit. From that vantage point, the scene on earth is awesome. Creatures being born, other ones dying; plants blooming on one side, plants withering on the other; snow snowing, winds blowing, volcanoes erupting, earthquakes shivering, people talking, music playing. From the moonview, it's incredible cosmic drama, looking up at the moon, it's a different story. It changes from the drama to my drama and gets to be a problem. If you’re far enough away, it’s not your story - it’s one of the six and a half billion stories.

Remembering the two views simultaneously is a great challenge.’

- Sylvia Boorstein, It’s Easier Than You Think: The Buddhist Way to Happiness.


An Earthrise
Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives— choice, not chance, determines your destiny.

Robin Williams (1951-2014)
I am filled with great sadness at Robin Williams’ passing. I grew up watching his movies, and considered him one of those rare actors endowed with the magical quality of being able to effortlessly elicit laughter and tears (often at the same time) from any audience. He had so much vigor, energy and life, that when he thundered “Carpe diem, boys! Seize the day! Suck the marrow out of life” in Dead Poets Society, you believe that he meant it. He was an actor so generous that he gave so much joy to audiences yet kept none for himself. I wish that he could have found the same comfort and happiness that his films have given so many of us. Thank you for all your wonderful and inspiring work, Mr. Williams. And I hope you find peace, O Captain, my Captain.
