Those who have been on my page before will notice that I have a new header. It’s a shot of sky and clouds – with a twist. For me it is a shot of the world and humanity’s place in it. Look closely at the header and you will see a tiny black mark. This is an airplane. I watched it cross the sky and thought about how big it was, compared to me or my car or my house. Yet in the sky it was as nothing – you only notice it in the shot when it is pointed out. All that nothing, and we think we’re something. Am I getting philosophical or just old?
