What planet are you from, girl?
And are there others like you there?
And could you do that magic trick again?
Poppin’ up from nowhere
Though my planet’s full of warfare
You make it feel like a dream
Man I hope they never find you

****

You gotta go inward
To experience the outer space
That was built for you
You gotta go inward

The Rare “Zodiacal Light”
Photographer Justin Ng captures a rare sight in a gorgeous time-lapse video taken over the volcanoes surrounding Mt. Bromo. Here’s the full video:

As the Milky Way comes into view, a diffuse, glowing triangle becomes apparent even though the sun is far below the horizon. In the photo below, by Ng, you’ll notice that the glowing triangle contains the planets Venus, Saturn, and Mercury:

This is sunlight, reflected from below the horizon, bouncing off of faint dust that lingers in our solar system’s planetary disk, the zodiacal plane itself. This so-called “zodiacal light" is the result of leftover debris from the formation of the planets, light so faint that even moonlight will obscure it.
This is what’s left from the birth of our home and its neighbors, glowing in the springtime night. Wow.

There are quite profound reasons why we should care simultaneously about having and doing. Both are connected to flourishing. What we do with our lives is obviously central to who we are. What we expend our mental energy on, what we put our emotional resources into, where we deploy courage or daring or prudence or commitment: these are major parts of existence and are inevitably much connected with work and earning money. And we need these parts of existence in order to find proper application in activities that deserve our best efforts. We don’t’ want to reserve our central capacities for the margins and weekends of life.
