Life span

Long before this observation tower came into existence, these stars made their way across the night sky. And long after this tower is reclaimed by the wind, ice and rain, the stars will continue their nightly trek, indifferent to the changes on the small planet below them.

We look up at those stars that precede us and follow us. They shine on those who have walked this way before us and who will pass this way at a time far in the future.

We are the connection between the two.
