Ditto.
Playing The Old Fashioned Way

It was joyous tinged with a little sadness yesterday when on our way down to photograph the sunset at Derwent Water we came across a bunch of kids playing football and having a great time. Its just something we don't see too much of anymore, children play football but alas it tends to be on the latest gaming console. 

Being old I remember making street carts out of old bits of woods and the wheels of a pram, building dens wherever we could and having your gang hang out in them. Going for bike rides that would last for hours on end and the only rule you had to abide by was be home when the street lights come on.

"In-Significance" by Amit Kamble
"Ever wondered how precious our planet Earth is and how In-Significant we beings are. The Milky Way is a home to around 200-400 billion stars and among all of them our tiny young "Sun" is the chosen one to host a life sustaining planet."
 
"In this image is The Milky Way galaxy, rising in the month of February. This is the time when the galactic core is back in the night sky after a summer vacation. If you are at a very dark site on a moonless night, it's easy to notice the ground lit up by the light from the stars, which are light years away. The very center of The Milky Way is around 26,000 light years away, yet is bright enough to be seen as a bright cloud in the night sky."
 
"This definitely is one of the best views from planet earth. As our solar system safely sits, just around the edge of one of the galactic arms (Orion - Cygnus), we get to see the full view of the galaxy and study it. Would have been totally different and more amazing if we were in a different place, but we would have the thought the same, if we were in that location."
 
"Talking of In-Significance reminds me of the famous lines by Carl Sagan:" 
'Consider again that dot [Earth]. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there—on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.'
-Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space by Carl Sagan
