It’s been a tough week, guys. Politics. Sexism. And now Prince. I just want to curl up and bury my head in a pillow until the world goes away.
When I feel like this, there’s one thing that always makes it better: images of our beautiful planet from space.
I mean, damn. It really puts things in perspective. All our small, petty squabbling suddenly looks like what it is, small and petty. If you stand back far enough, everything is beautiful again. You just need to get some perspective. Rise above the storm.
So, anyway, happy Earth Day everyone. Whatever else might be going on, we still live on a stunningly beautiful world.
Special thanks to NASA’s twitter feed this week for always giving me a new image just when I needed it most. You’re a life saver, NASA.
