This artwork, drawn in 2003, was inspired by the 1998 Leonid meteor shower which at times almost became a storm. I watched it with enhanced vision via psychedelics, and recalled the sheer abundance of glowing fireballs as depicted here. The sense of it literally raining tiny dust particles was overwhelming, and the thought of panspermia (the theory that life on the earth originated from microorganisms or chemical precursors via cometary impact from space) was strong and viable. A deeply memorable experience. The night scene is framed by the same view as seen during the daylight hours.
