That’s when I begin to realize how high up this picture was taken. I couldn’t help but try looking up.
A friend of mine recently posted a link to the NASA website which included the picture connected to this article. It is a “selfie” taken by astronaut Ricky Arnold during a space walk to do work on the International space station. While I admire the clarity of the picture and the beauty of our planet reflected in Mr. Arnold’s helmet visor, there’s only one thought going through my head . . . not for all the money in the world. Nope. Nada. Nyet. Look closely and you will see the cold, dark space that surrounds our planet and this astronaut. That’s when I begin to realize how high up this picture was taken. I couldn’t help but try looking up.
