Travelers

Star Cluster Capella
Is 42 light-years Away.

The Light it Generates
Takes 42 years to reach the Earth.

If You were to Travel to Capella
Shortly before your 42nd Birthday ~

You would be able to Witness
Your own Birth back on Earth.

An Invisible Red Thread

Connects Those
Who are Destined to Meet

Regardless the Time, the Place
Regardless the Circumstance

The Thread may Stretch or Tangle
But it will never Break.

But to Face the Barriers

You have Built
Against it.

Does not Wither

It Tears from Us All but That
Which Cannot be Torn

See Ourselves

As We Really Are.

When One Tugs at
A Single Thing in Nature ~

One Finds it Connected
To the Rest of the World.
