SAVE THE DATE:  End of July 2061

Halley's comet will be coming 'round earth, and according to the inside trail from astronomers , it will be 5X closer to earth than its last visit.
When I think of comets, I think Kohoutek. I remember setting the alarm for 2 or 3 or 4 a.m.  So, I could throw on a coat and boots and walk out through the frosty, Stubbled farm field behind us that I might get a clear view of the whole sky.

When I think of cold night skies, I think next of August's warm skies and streets as Harvey, and I would stretch on our backs on the pavement of our cul-de-sac in mid- night to catch a spectacular Perseid meteor shower.

When I think of meteors I think of Meteor Crater, Arizona, that dry and barren, deep hollow   where that thunder ball of space junk left over from some ancient impact changed its astronomical status as it slammed into earth it set off a chain reaction that changed weather, climate, and living things so that species became extinct.

When I think of extinct, I think of two extant individuals of differing species I read about recently: A South African Naturalist, Craig Foster, and an octopus who chose him.  Their story is told in the documentary film, My Octopus Teacher.

When I think of other species who choose to have a relationship with us, I think of vulnerability.

When I think of vulnerability, I think that applies equally to two humans choosing a relationship.
or me, choosing a loving relationship with My Creator God.
Dear God, what will this relationship Get me into next?
