Every few months, I remember to actually look at something like this.

As I type this, it's still daylight here. I can see a half-moon, though: one of the quirks of the Northern sky is that we can frequently see the moon during the day. I'm feeling awash in some kind of emotion; I feel reminded that there's a big universe out there, full of stuff like that moon there, pulled around a sun, so many different wonderful things, even life, amino proteins and acids, DNA and RNA, photoreceptors, evolution, all of it real, happening, and it all works. Sure, it either exists or not, so of course it works, but it doesn't stop the feeling of wonder at What Is.

It does all work, somehow. Makes it more obvious human society isn't based on the same model, but it does all work.

It's a wonderful everything.
