We Are Stardust

The Art Blog at Episcopal Cafe

"Stanford Quad" (above) painted by The Rev. Eliza Linley and quilted by Deborah Rasmussen is shown this week at Episcopal Cafe. About this piece, the artist writes: "The arches of the Stanford Quad open here onto deep space. Images brought to us over the years by the Hubble Telescope put us in touch with a cosmic truth: we are stardust; the atoms that make up our bodies were present at the dawn of creation. The stars we see today are echoes of a drama that took place millions of years ago. This perspective gives us a more complete understanding of our place in the universe and our responsibility for the care of our planet."
