Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence



Guardian of the Universe 2

Timeless waves
Captured to infinity
Hidden star light

In response to Patrick Jenning’s Pic and a Word Challenge: Infinity

Author: Dancing Echoes

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path. Awards: While I am grateful and honored for the numerous nominations, I don’t have time to respond to them with the attention they deserve, so for the most part, I am an award free blog.

  3. That sky is photographed so richly!

    That is so beautiful!

    This shot intensifies my eagerness to see TESS launched next March.

  4. In the day, with its ceiling of blue and the lone giant star hanging like a presence, infinity is but a daydream. But on a clear night, infinity is in the sky, staring right back at you.

    Love this shot, and all it invokes, captured admirably — as always — in a few brief syllables.

  5. Beautiful words. Thank you and thank you for getting it 🙏


  6. <smile> Easily gotten, though I think you and I — and perhaps everyone — share a common awe of a star-filled sky.

    Thanks for ‘musing’ the words. ; )

  7. And we don’t get to see half of what the ancients saw before there was light pollution. I feel sorry for city kids today who never get to see the true night sky. I have only witnessed it twice.


  8. Kind of ironic, don’t you think? With our technology we can see further into space than our ancestors. In order to develop that technology, we have polluted our skies with particulates and photons to such a degree, we can not see the sky.

    I recommend traversing Xinjiang in China, or the Australian Outback, for night skies. ; )

  9. Great point on the irony! You must have seen an amazing night sky in China. I saw mine off the coast of Panama, in New Zealand and I forgot the third -the Outback. The first two were particularly memorable because off Panama I was night diving among phosphorescent salps and in New Zealand I had just climbed out a cave with glow worms. In both cases it was kind of a mind bender to go from the glowing creatures to the glowing sky.

  10. The Earth was so utterly black on an outback sheep station in Australia, with stars the only illumination other than a single porch light 100 meters away. I’d wandered out beyond the homestead’s light without a flashlight. It was quite a trial finding my way back through fence gates and landscaping. The night sky would have been spectacular, but I can’t visualize it.

    I suppose I’ve seen that night sky so many times now, the memories all sort of meld together.

    Maybe I just have no profound experience like yours to anchor the memory. =)
