It seems funny to me that we talk about going up to heaven when we die. Which way is up? Depending on the continent we live on it could be a lot of different directions. Nevertheless, when we think of the heavens we are covering a vast expanse beyond the human mind. We are in a small miniscule part of this great cosmos.

Is Heaven up there

hidden in the Milky Way…

An eternal Spring?
