I was in the shower this morning and I began to think about gravity and the way planets and moons and such can be in very stable orbits. But if something large enough crosses the path of these stable bodies, their orbits are disturbed. Their paths are no longer stable and secure. They can be flung far off into space, or settle into radical new orbits.
Then I thought how that is analogous to our lives. We orbit our friends and loved ones in stable predictable paths, until something large crosses our paths. Then all hell breaks loose.
I am going to paint that.
