The Pale Blue Dot

Not only is April the birthday month of my brother Rick and my poet pal Ramesh but April has perhaps the most days of all the months of religious celebrations throughout the world.
I think it fit that as we acknowledge our spiritual connection to take a look at the home we all share.
