On my computer’s desktop
there’s that famous picture of
Taken by an astronaut.
You probably know it.
It’s our place.
It’s a jewel that no man or woman could have invented.
It’s an invention.
Of intelligence and love.
And these two are present in us all.
When I look at that picture
I always feel a kind of a tear.
A tear for joy.
As if we all – me too – have taken part in creating it.
