Sometimes, I wonder if anyone else ponders as much about life as I do.

I don’t think I used to, but even during my earlier years, I always wondered if there was more. More than getting up, eating, going to work, being social (or not), eating again, and going to sleep. Why are we on this planet? And why is our planet Earth placed where it is in our Solar System – just at the right spot for us?

My oldest daughter wants to become an astronaut. She is fascinated with the Universe, although, I suppose, for other reasons that I am. She wants to know if there is other life out there; if there are planets or asteroids habitable for us humans, or how science in space can advance us here on Earth. For me, the questions are different. Why is it, that our Earth is placed perfectly within the “Goldilocks-zone” – not too close to and not too far away from the sun? Why is it that only Earth (as far as we know) has a perfect atmosphere to protect all life on Earth from harmful rays from outer space? Why does only Earth supply us with H2O, in all three of its states present at all time? Who or what made Earth so perfect for us? And most of all, what do we do to keep it that way?

As I am writing these words, I am sitting at a beach in Key Biscayne, Florida, where our family gathered for some Holiday fun together. I watch the cruise ship head out of sea from Miami Beach harbor, I watch wake-boarders turning their sails to the wind to catch it for the right speed to enjoy the fun. People are splashing in the waves, jogging along the beach, or just relaxing in the sun. We – people – take pleasure in the Earth’s elements, the wind, the warmth of the sun, the refreshing water, the air we breathe and that keeps us alive. And, we are used to the luxury of unlimited supply, at least here in the West, where it seems that the Earth’s abundance provides plenty without ever seizing.
