Thursday Transcendence

I’ll post another update tomorrow, but in the meantime, I came across two videos that were too wonderful not to share:

• First, this montage of stunning moments from the documentary series Planet Earth, with music by the band Sigur Ros;

• and then, this video: a recording of Carl Sagan reading his immortal “Reflections on a Mote of Dust” speech from the book Pale Blue Dot – his words in his voice, set to a slideshow of pictures of the Earth from space.

If you can watch either of these and not get choked up, you’re a stronger person than I am.
