20th Anniversary of a Photograph

Take a break from your software to read this: Today (February 12, 2010) marks the 20th anniversary of a remarkably simple, unimportant, yet incredibly special and sentimental event. A perspective that few consider in their daily lives. I sometimes get caught in the daily grind, worry about things that … maybe aren’t so important. There are bigger ideas out there, and I find a small sense of peace when I think about our lives in the context of something so vast and unknown. Take a few minutes to read the entire article on NPR. Thank you, Carl Sagan, for such a clear and unburdened view of our world.
