Star Stuff Harvesting Star Light - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade




Dr. Carl Sagan is a major hero of mine.  As Wikipedia explains he “was an American astronomer, cosmologist, astrophysicist, astrobiologist, author, science popularizer, and science communicator in astronomy and other natural sciences.” he was often called "the astronomer for the people." Quite the Renaissance man!  I remember being glued to the TV when the groundbreaking TV series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage was first aired.  Dr. Sagan was able to explain complex ideas in a simple way that a layperson could understand.  Being a science geek, especially when it comes to space, my mind sailed on its own voyage of personal discovery each week (and with the reruns that I always managed to watch).  I still remember vividly and muse over certain parts of certain episodes that particularly touched me.  Unfortunately Dr. Sagan died in 1996 at the young age of 62.  I still miss him and all he had to offer.  He returned to the star dust he so loved.




One of my favorite Carl Sagan quotes (and there are MANY) is this:  “We are one species.  We are star stuff harvesting star light.”  So incredibly beautiful and so true!  With that in mind, my newest Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade is titled Star Stuff Harvesting Star Light.  All of the artisan handmade items remind me of moons, stars, planets, the sky - all celestially radiant.  I hope you enjoy these picks.
