The Context

by Nick Andrea

Do we remember
The vast and boundaryless Earth beneath our feet;
That as we walk in Asheville
We walk also in Texas;
In China;
And in the Congo?

Do we remember
The infinite cosmos beyond the veil of the blue sky;
That we ride together
On this spaceship, Earth,
Hurling through the universe
At speeds untold?

And do we remember
That it all came from stardust
And to stardust will return, one day?

Do we remember the context of now
As we stand in line
At the checkout counter
After work?

My goal has always been and continues to be the liberation of minds, my own and what influence I may have on others, to perceive the extraordinary beauty all around us. To this end, I write, play music, and design websites. Don't hesitate to contact me for more information about any of these activities. :)
