A message from the author
As an artist and writer, I know that we are often inspired by the world around us. It was just such a picture
produced by the Hubble team, which inspired me to ponder the creation of galaxies around us. With their help, I
can look out into the great beyond, see the ineffable art that is the universe, and allow my mind to sculpt it into
words and pictures here on our little blue ball called Earth.
