Statement: May I share two quotes as my statement: 'Out Yonder, there is this huge world ... the contemplation of this world beckons like a liberation.' - A. E. ' ... plankton, a shimmering phosphorescence on the sea and the spinning planets of our universe, all bound together ... It is advisable to look from the tidal pool to the stars and them back to the tide pool again.' - Steinbeck from 'The Log of the Sea of Cortez'
