Saw this old (2013) photo of the earth as viewed from Saturn over at The Hostages, and it kind of made the bottom of my stomach drop out. Just seeing what a tiny little speck we are in our tiny speck of a solar system in a tiny speck of a galaxy in a universe of 2 trillion galaxies.

When I see that I think, “No Lives Matter.”

As a painter, I appreciate the visual power of perspective… This is an awesome photo… It has both visual and philosophical power… Thanks for posting it…
