The Nightfall Dance

Dancing all around me like tiny ghosts of the night,Standing and watching, listening, there's nothing but silence,Evan as you shoot past my ear I can't tell that you even exist, playfully carrying on your twilight dance as if I don't.So close as if daring me to hear your call, your shadow, fleeting in the glow...

Solar Eclipse - No credit claimed on Image - Credit NASA Even a world as insignificant as the Moon can block out the mighty... Continue Reading →

I’m Mesmerized… Guys this post is a long one but stay with me!!♥️♥️🌹

I immediately begin to ask myself WHERE does our universe end. Through intricate calculations using Astrophysics, Astrologists have determined that there could indeed be an ending to our universe BUT this “ending” would be located no closer than 46 BILLION LIGHT-YEARS from our own galaxy. (I know many Astrologists prefer Parsecs which is basically just working with a larger number of light-years- like 3.26 light-years-but those numbers go way over my head so I stick to the basic “distance of light traveled over a year” light-year)Now we already know that 1 light-year is about 5.9 trillion miles so let’s multiply 46,000,000,000 by 5,900,000,000,000 and what the flip is that number!
