So easy to miss the background music

focusing on what is immediately before you

you can forget the context

We are like fish in a fishbowl

We need to shatter the glass

come to breathe the air

Come to understand

the broader context

not only the constraints of our culture

but also the free and open space that exists

in the beyond

The cosmos goes on forever

and life and love and the creative spirit

exists virtually everywhere

if we can only reach out and touch

the aliens and make them our friends

and learn to travel beyond the stars
