Deep Deep Sky

The earth is shallow

Even the sea is shallow

But the sky is deep.

So very deep.

It opens over me like an abyss so vast that my eye can’t comprehend it and my mind can’t accept it.

Perhaps that’s how we live; by cultivating our blindness so that the sky looks flat and near-at-hand. Because if we really saw it the way it is, every moment, if every glance upwards gave us such a sense of endless, endless empty depth, we’d hardly be able to live

for fear of falling.
