It's an amazing universe in which we live.
I remember the very first time I felt truly insignificant---so tiny in this vast universe. Mr. Clara and I went on our first cruise. It was a family reunion type of thing. The first night on the ship I stepped on to the Promenade deck about 10 pm. It was a beautiful, warm, clear night with stars twinkling but other than the stars I was standing alone looking out over a huge, black body of water---never-ending and no horizon.
I've never felt so small in my life. It was a magical moment and a shocking realization. What a wonderful world. Thanks to Louie Armstrong for reminding us.
