This is Pat Steir's print "Starry Night: August." This is Pat Steir.
I hope you will look tonight, at the Perseid meteor showers. The night sky bends my thoughts towards two poles: One; to the infinite and connected; we are all a part of this vastness of space; I am but one grain of sand making up the whole. Two; to the ever startling awareness of how immense all that is "not me" really is- the way you might just tilt off and away into that depth, and fall for eons.
