“…within the clouds appear numerous illusions,
a woman’s face with flowing hair and a windblown robe,
a bird’s head, fantastic creatures and so much mystery…”

This photo of clouds within a mysterious jet stream region on Jupiter was taken in February 2019 by NASA’s Juno Space Probe. Photo courtesy and © of NASA, JPL-Caltech, SwRI, MSSS and Kevin M. Gill. (I seldom use other people’s photos, but I couldn’t resist ‘borrowing’ this one.)

try as he will, get around to the front of the universe.
Man is destined to see only its far side,
to realize nature only in retreat.”
