If you could see what I see now, the perspective you have on that seemingly tiny blue gem would be changed forever.
You just cannot describe the majesty from up here, the sheer scale of it all, what truly lies beyond the safe little ball of normalcy you call
You switched off the voices a little while back. It may have been longer; I may have been drifting out here for a greater time than I originally

have learned of the universe.
For now, the beautiful silence of the void is my only companion.
