Saturday was the opening night of “California: The Center of the Universe” exhibit at The Fullerton Museum Center. It was an incredible, cosmic display of NASA pictures, sketches and early drawings and works of astronomers and scientists.
I’ve always been intrigued with the Universe, and all of its mighty elements. I wish on shooting stars, I find images in cloud formations, and I know deep down in my heart, there’s a Divine Intelligence that’s beyond our human capacity to understand.
I was a little frazzled upon arrival. An hour before the show, I received a call to come back to Roadkill Ranch & Boutique. There was an interesting fellow stirring up trouble, disturbing the customers, and galloping around the store displaying obscene body gestures while wearing one of our horse masks. He wasn’t too thrilled when I showed up on the scene and ruined his fun. So, after I dealt with that problem, I realized I had an even bigger problem, I had forgotten my earrings at home. And, well, they were part of my “exhibit” outfit (I always try to dress accordingly). Good thing I literally live above The Museum Center and without a moment to spare, I was able to get back to my place, grab my Tarina Tarantino moon earrings and meet my friend Karen just in time for the opening reception.
All calmed down when I began to lose myself in the photos from outer space. I felt peaceful while looking into infinity, and my problems and worries seemed so small compared to the vast Universe.
There’s a big cosmos trend happening in the fashion industry, and I’ve been buying a lot of planetary-related merchandise for the store. We even have glow-in-the-dark moon leggings on order. I think the Universe is trying to speak to me, and I’m pretty sure it’s saying, “Don’t let guys in horse masks keep you from living a peaceful life.” Or, maybe it’s trying to show me how to trust in the mystery of my journey and give me the peace to know everything is going to be fine in its time.
The first three pics are pics of pics I took on my phone. Original photos on display by NASA’s Hubble space telescope.
The last pic is of my man-in-the-moon earrings, available at Roadkill Ranch & Boutique.
