Lost in Space...Lost in Time

As evident by the background, Thoughts That Go Bump in the Night is a big fan of the Universe.  Any and every problem, concern, irritation, grievance, anger, fear, etc. is immediately put in perspective with the thought and vision of the grandeur that is the All.

Astronomy Picture of the Day
Such as this marvelous image of the universe in the direction of the constellation Pegasus.  As explained:

Stars in a Dusty Sky

Explanation: Bright star Markab anchors this dusty skyscape. At the top right corner of the frame, Markab itself marks a corner of an asterism known as the Great Square, found within the boundaries of the constellation Pegasus, the flying horse. The wide and deep telescopic view rides along for some 5 degrees or about 10 times the angular diameter of the Full Moon, with blue reflection nebulae scattered around the scene. And even though this line-of-sight looks away from the plane of our Milky Way galaxy, it covers a region known to be filled with nearby molecular clouds. The associated dust clouds, high latitude galactic cirrus, are less than 1,000 light-years distant. Still apparent, but far beyond the Milky Way, are background galaxies, like the prominent edge-on spiral NGC 7497 near picture center.

Keeping everything in perspective is a good thing.
