Good God I LOVE these pictures.

I will never understand why people do not feel awed at our very existance. I just find it so amazing that it cannot be put into words that can encompass the awe that I feel.

When I see the pictures of galaxys which look like little pin pricks I can not help but say WOW, I'm really here.

Simply amazing.
