“The path isn’t a straight line; it’s a spiral. You continually come back to things you thought you understood and see deeper truths.”

Quote, You are All Stardust

The amazing thing is that every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements – the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution – weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way they could get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today.

-Lawrence M. Krauss, A Universe from Nothing: Why There Is Something Rather Than

Ask.

Don’t be afraid
To ask outright
for what you need,

It is not a burden,
But to hold it in,
And go without,
Because you feared
Judgement,
When you were most in need.

All you can do is ask,
There is no shame
In asking
For
Help.
