Just Look Up

Carol A. Hand

It’s easy to lose perspective during these chaotic times. Watching the moon last night, I realized how little I knew about some of the most important things about the earth, moon and sun. I wasn’t able to see their interrelationship in my mind, so I went searching and decided to share some of the things I discovered.

Sometimes it’s humbling to realize that although it may seem like we’re standing still, we’re actually standing on a spinning globe with little between us and a vast and wondrous universe…


About Carol A. Hand

What matters are not the titles I’ve held or university degrees I earned or the size of a house or bank account. It’s really what I’ve learned from ordinary people like me whom I’ve met along the way. They taught me to live with gratitude and give thanks for each new day.

    Looking up offers realization of the vast unknown. There is so much to know and human life is merely a blip on the cosmic timescale.
