Favorite Quote:
As if I could pick just one.


I have to wonder
If I were to explode
In a supernova
Would the disturbance
Shake the earth
Or would
My light go on shining
For a myriad millenia
Thousands of lightyears away?

The author's comments:
I got the idea in Physics class last year. Stars are so far away that it would take us thousands of years to even know they had burned out-- the light takes that long to travel. So for all we know, all the stars we're looking at are gone now.
