    that is a beautiful phrase ! I love his ‘animals (from song of myself)’… have you read that one?…

    My favourite line there is:

    [when referring to animals] No one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of owning things

    sums up a lot for me…

    Hey Imogene, were you still interested in the Global Train Collaboration? Haven’t had anyone up load a while, feel free to go for it!

    technically those same atoms that make up you once made up stars…
    and I’m willing to bet we all share electrons

    what a nice thought Rowan. we’re all made up of ex-star atoms XD sounds slightly romantic

    it’s more than romantic Imogene – it’s COSMIC! :-)

    we are all part of the stars (star dust)…it really connects you to the whole, big picture

    It’s a widely discussed theory in cosmological science… lots of popular songs talk about it too… Also has lots of links in the occult, religion and metaphysical studies. When you are not at school I could suggest some further reading that isn’t too hard to come to grips with if you like .. just send me a bubble if you’re up for it!
