The Universe

Milky Way. Night sky and silhouette of a standing man

Sometimes, I marvel at who is in my life.
Sometimes, I am stunned to ponder that I could begin alone
then
become
connected
to
who after
who after
who after
who.

And this never ends.

It’s like a Big Bang, really.
A Whole Universe of Belonging.

We each start as a singularity.
Then
each one of us
bursts forth,
brought into an abundance of connections,
born anew bit by bit
through the particularities of relationship.

And these particularities
create
build
form
nurture
cultivate
and
renew.

They expand.

This is an ever expanding Universe —
this Cosmos
of
who after
who after
who after
who.

  1. I told my 8 year old grandson about Steven Weir’s book, “the First Three Minutes” on the Big Bang. He got so excited to know how God got things started, and how quickly it went from nothing to all that is. Your excitement over our personal big bang is equally intriguing. Your blogs are my daily devotional. Thank you. Hector
