The fossiliferous limestone facade of #4 Kildare Street in Dublin. Brachiopods and crinoids, oh my, indicate an ancient coral reef, evidence that Ireland was near the equator in the Silurian period.
We understand so little about this marble we live on and yet what we grasp, comprehend, maybe even know, amazes to no end. “Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known,” as Carl Sagan said. Humbled while enhanced, this is enough reality and truth for me. Today, I am thankful for the Earth.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
