Planet Earth

Planet Earth is so beautiful I can't stand it. This great big amazing cosmic joke, this fireball island in the middle of nothing. How ridiculous all of it. How fabulously beautiful. Even the ugly spots. How perfectly imperfect. How much diminished it would be if it were not sometimes ugly, sometimes crazy, sometimes frustrating and horrible and gorgeous all at once. This lonely life and this isolated paradise. Even stupid, ugly death adds to the beauty. And therefore sometimes I find it so hard to be angry.
But, it's not some perfect imperfect divine plan or game. It's because we evolved here. Just a beautiful accident, a fantastic fluke. All of it. All existence even. It's all a ridiculous joke, started by no one. Get it?
