Every now and then, I come across something that realigns my perspective, making me stop and think about my life, this world, all we argue and fight over, and all we love and hold on to. Sometimes images like this allow us to zoom out just enough to regain our sense of place.  Thank you Phil Plait over at Bad Astronomy for posting this, it’s simply fantastic.
