What Can You Eat Without Guilt?

So much consuming going on, especially at this time of year.

 

We are indeed consumers, and staying alive means that we must consume –everything must eat something, just to exist…

 

How thankful I am to whatever allows itself to be consumed… I care that we understand the privilege to allow yourself to be a form for sacrifice to survival of something else… Humans are also animals; I rank us no higher…   Even viruses and bacteria are doing what they must to extend their populations…  This extends to just about every scale, eating, eating, easting –no permanent satiation seems possible… If we eat till we’re “full ” –soon  enough we find ourselves “empty” again, and this cycle of consuming –and making waste, since forms that take in  potential nutrients, don’t always find them to be nutritious, life-sustaining.

 

This won’t end; even galaxy will consume galaxy… But on a more personal level, many humans will be hungry –even on Thanksgiving, a celebration about food…

 

Please take time to remember all,

Rho Ophiuchus, Unmodified

Our neighborhood! –very tasty picture! –I eat it up while it eats me up

This is the next shot of our Bavarian/Austrian collaboration, the famous Rho Ophiuchus region in the constellation of Scorpio, close to the center of our home galaxy, the Milky Way. My first stacked deep sky image done with an unmodified camera, the 5d III, processed by my friend Bernd Weinzierl from Eisenerz/Austria. Please take a lot at his great work here: http://innerberg-astro.lima-city.de/index.html. and a high-res version here: http://innerberg-astro.lima-city.de/Bilder%20gross/Widefields/Rho%20Ophiuchus.jpg . Some three years ago when I looked at such images, I was blown away by the sheer beauty of them. Today, I´m still blown away…only difference – I´m doing them by myself now – LOL. Here´s an interesting link if you want to go deeper into Rho Ophiuchus: http://www.constellation-guide.com/constellation-list/ophiuchus-constellation/. Enjoy!
