A zoom into Abell 1689

They care a lot at a social media etiquette class in this very remote dusty galaxy.

Charmayanne is reaching for a bigger picture, a turn of the spiral that opens up into trust.

"Last night I saw you really focus on what you were doing but then going to sad and scared thoughts about the future."

"I moved in the shadows..."

"Turn around now. The forest... ...is moving."

"I feel the fear and the sadness but it’s held in a bigger much bigger picture."

"We've been friends for 10 years, okay?"

"Look, if something happens, we're gonna suffer for the rest of our lives."

"Oh, come on. Nothing's gonna happen."

They wait while Charmayanne’s system begins to calm. S/He has been almost blind with fear and overwhelm. They wait. They breathe. They surround them with gentle love. They feel a connection. 

"Would you like to come with me?"
