Although I'm usually the first one to indulge in holiday excess and conspicuous consumption, every so often something reminds me that there is more out there than just myself.
Like this photo which left an entire world nearly speechless in awe when it first appeared in 1972,
a new video has just been released by NASA which should have much the same effect. Even if you don't come to any deep philosophical conclusions while watching, it's still an enjoyable piece of art.
I can't figure out how to embed the video into this post, but if you have five minutes to enjoy a fascinating view of our world, click here.
I wish you all a happy and contemplative Thanksgiving.
