Walking down to the beach in the dead of night we were transfixed by the interplay of the Milkyway stretching out above us and the dark movement of the ocean in the starlight. A billowing stream of angel dust thrown across the sky set against the steady rhythmic roll of the waves greeting and retreating from the darkened shore. The energy held in the night viewed from the shifting silver sands mirrored the glorious electro spread of our cities girdering our Earth viewed from Saturn's orbit and Neptune's moons. Steady nuclei united in perfectly ordered abandon, pulsing with heat and light, strong and arrogant and proud fighting against the entropy of time.
