Children of the Stars

When we look out into space,
we are looking into our own origins.
Because we are truly, children of the stars.
And written into every atom,
every molecule of our bodies
is the entire history of the universe.
From the Big Bang to the present day,
our story is the story of the universe.
Every piece of everyone,
of everything you love,
of everything you hate,
of the thing you hold most precious,
was assembled by the forces of nature
in the first few minutes of the life of the universe.
Transformed in the hearts of stars,
or created in their fiery deaths.
And when you die those pieces will be returned to the universe,
in an endless cycle of death and rebirth.
What a wonderful thing it is, to be a part of that universe.

And what a story.
What a majestic story.

It's been a year since you left. We miss you lots. xx
