Modern version of 'memento mori'. A Latin expression meaning 'remember that you have to die' originating from a practice common in Ancient Rome in the form of a beautiful object. This image, taken by the Hubble telescope, says nothing directly about what happened today at work or in our relationships. Its function is to make us feel small. That’s normally unpleasant, but to be made to feel small by something so much more majestic and powerful than we are has something redeeming and enhancing about it.
