As you may have noticed, I’m reserving most of my words this week for my novel-in-progress. But I wanted to share with you this amazing photo of the Valentine Rose Nebula to ease us all into the weekend.
The Five-Year-Old: “Did you know that nebulas are made by stars at death?”

Happy weekend, y’all.
