Remember how the world felt like it was getting smaller? Transportation and communication developments over the past 200+ years have been the factors of earth’s shrinkage.

Planets do not go to reunions or conventions to boast about their possessions or achievements. The moon looked beautiful last night, not happy or sad, not alive or dead, and it is probably the most loyal thing to this planet we call EARTH.
