A glimpse at our Celestial ball

From outer space, it is amazing to regard our civilization fitting on a round sphere rotating around at regularly timed intervals. There is a rythmic design to life with its predictability of morning and evening and the seasons. During the late summer and early autumn months, the unpredictability of tropical storms and hurricanes hit some parts of the earth in a ravaging fashion.
It is hard to fathom how this can happen to so many people. Katrina has a lot of power behind her that has been unleashed. A lot of destruction has passed by. Hardships will be faced with courage and strength that many in Asia had to face last December. But my hope and prayer with this piece is to offer hope to those who come along to it. Remember to look up into space and have awe at the beauty of this celestial ball that we live on ; even in the midst of the trajedy that surrounds it. It is the heroism and ingenuity that arises in these times that holds our world together.
