My interest in The Cosmos

I am not aware if any of my friends know just how interested I am in the stars and planets. So here is my confession.

I have always had a fascination with the stars, the planets and "outer" space. I look at the night sky and see these tiny points of light that I know come from far away. Even more amazing is that when I see some of them, they no longer exist. The light of some stars has traveled so far that it has outlived its source.
Is there life out there? Will I ever know?

This I do know, I will be getting a telescope delivered (hopefully) this week. Each of the celestial beauties will be seen a bit closer.

Oh yes, the painting- I was working on this "start" and posted it on my art blog in "sharing a start" http://artbygene.blogspot.com/2007/12/sharing-start.html
I posted the original and where it went next. Now, here is where it seems to be going. This is only a section of the painting. I am getting glare when I photograph it. So I just used a portion that came out okay.
