The Sky

A clear sky, whether during the daytime or at night, reminds one of the expansiveness of the world. It liberates one to realise that while on earth we have imposed boundaries, and borders, the sky does not recognise any of them at all. Moreover, while the texture of the earth is different depending upon where one is, the sky can be the same anywhere. A night could be just as dark and starry in Pakistan as in the United Kingdom, full of clouds, or clear and sunny.

Simply looking up can connect one to the other geographies one knows, and serve as a reminder of the oneness of the world, the human spirit, and the human struggle.
