Because, really, isn't this enough?
Just ... THIS.
This gorgeous and fathomable earth that we live upon.
The life within a single, glistening drop of pond water.

Caves full of gigantic, hidden crystals.
The carbon cycle.
Antibiotics
Weather and our atmosphere
Dirts and sands.
Poetry.
Mohenjo Daro and Harrappa
The millions of types of birds and their unique calls and habits.
Groundhogs, for goodnesssake.
Hoary frost.
Thunderstorms.
Cirrus clouds.
Knowable currents in our oceans.
The Himalayas.
Bubbling mud.
Fields of wildflowers.
Huge flocks of birds on the wing.
A single colony of ants.
Baleen whales.
The Marianna Trench.
Red algae.
Opals.
Imagination.
Sea anemones.
Budding hosta.
Canopies of life in the rain forest.
Bristlecone pines.
Pollen.
The eye.
Our digestive system.
Our immunity system.
Our nervous system.
Memory!
Our senses!
Shifting sand dunes.
Dry snow.
Giraffes.
The Tiaga.
Pill bugs. 
The Cassini Mission
Pygmy humans.
Flight.
Sight.
sulfur spring
Communication.
Hormones.
Phermones.
Old bones.
Color.
Electricity.
Atoms.
Thousands of cultures.
Archeabacteria.
Song.
Dance.
Art.
Laughter.
Language.
Emotion.
Love.
Family.

AND BEYOND EARTH:
Just at the edge of our atmosphere.
The other side of the moon.
The Kuiper Belt.
The Mars Rover.
Cassini beyond Saturn.
Our solar system.
Our sun!
Other solar systems.
Our galaxy!
Other galaxies!

COME ON, People!

You get it. It is sublime, all of it.
The beauty of life and the mysteries as yet unknown to us...if you are curious, 

if you are among the curious, sublime is everywhere.

It is here. It is now.


 Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet.
