The Wonder in Astronomy

Devin Stevens Presents Literature

“There, totally immersed in a bath of pure ethereal colour and of unrelenting though unwounding brightness, stretched his full length and with eyes half closed in the strange chariot that bore them, faintly quivering, through depth after depth of tranquility far above the reach of night, he felt his body and mind daily rubbed and scoured and filled with new vitality. Weston, in one of his brief, reluctant answers, admitted a scientific basis for these sensations: they were receiving, he said, many rays that never penetrated the terrestrial atmosphere.

But Ransom, as time wore on, became aware of another and more spiritual cause for his progressive lightening and exultation of heart.

A day in the life of Cody

Cody gets into the shower.

It’s 12 pm.

The sky outside gets a little dark from through the curtained window.

Cody always thinks a thunderstorm is going to sneak up on him every time there isn’t constant, direct sunlight.

There have been many thunderstorms in the area recently, which Cody is afraid of.

Cody thinks that the reason this is the case is because people were doing what he was doing: not taking the sudden darkness of light seriously, as he has done for as long as he can remember anytime the sun goes behind a cloud.

A day in the life of Cody.

P.S. The lightning hasn’t struck yet.

The sun appears to be out.

Yet another false alarm.
