So, you’re looking down, from up there; you’re on the moon, just perching on the edge, feet dangling into space, staring down at the Earth. And maybe, we’re down here staring up at you.
You can’t see much – just a load of blue and green and sandy yellow swirls on the surface. From up here, it’s the most stunning place in the galaxy. The silence helps, of course; you’re so far removed from the chaos and hubbub. You can close your eyes and hear the melody of the Milky Way.
Now, zoom in… let yourself fall, just a little. You can see the clouds, the early formation of tornadoes, the north winds. And it’s beautiful, isn’t it?
Nearer still, you can make out rivers and mountain ranges and cities; volcanoes and islands and forests.
It’s night time, on this side of the Earth; but below you metropolises are lit up like beacons guiding you home. Can you see your home from here? Wrong continent, maybe, wrong hemisphere?
Fall further, see tiny ants that are really people. Just dots. You can’t tell whether they’re male, female, old, young, black, white. You can get closer, but maybe you don’t need to. Maybe right here is perfect.
