A Different Perspective 


Dear Oscar

I love this photo of the Earth and Moon. It was taken last month by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. It provides a view of our existence that we very rarely see. Pictures of the Earth are usually partial views from ISS or whole images taken from the moon, but to see the Earth and Moon together and watch their dance is a beautiul sight. In this picture is pretty much everyone who ever lived hanging in the black nothing with our faithful companion so near and yet so far. Viewing our lives in this different perspective is quite profound and I have stared at it in wonder for some time, stirring up motivations and joys that I hadn’t experienced for a while. It reminds me of the value in looking at something familiar in another way. Sometimes I worry about how you may feel you are losing or wasting years of your life and the mental burden that may bring, but then I heard on the radio the statisitic that the average person will spend eight and a half years of their lives watching TV. So I looked at your situation from a different perspective, if you spend every moment you can in pursuit of meaningful and productive goals you actually won’t have lost any time at all on the average person. It’s not the years in your life, it’s the life in your years.

Keep going, we are proud of you.
