(Video link here.  We recommend watching with the sound off.)  While navigating an overnight flight from Zurich to Sao Paolo, pilot Sales Wick used an ultra sensitive camera to film this wondrous hours-long view from the dashboard of his plane. The timelapse he made of the constellation Perseus with its hundreds of shooting stars, and the Milky Way, is magic. Right after we watched it, we stumbled on the perfect poem by Rilke.

Ah, not to be cut off,
not through the slightest partition
shut out from the law of the stars.
The inner—what is it?
if not intensified sky,
hurled through with birds and deep
with the winds of homecoming.


Such WONDER is what we want to remember as we go about our day.
