Smooth stones and Pretty Shells

“Even Newton had no idea he was going to change the way folk looked at the universe when he set out. Not that he saw it that way. He ended up saying he felt like he’d been a boy playing on a seashore, occasionally finding a smoother stone or a prettier shell, while the great ocean of truth lay undiscovered all around him.”*

What pretty things have we found today? In the scheme of the universe our smooth stone or a pretty shell is beyond tiny and so insignificant.

Yet, the universe is made up of such shards of star light and perhaps our lives are held together with such radiant filaments.

And the undiscovered? – waiting to be discovered!
