Our tribe is indigenous to

the third planet out

from a star called the Sun

Our origins are not clear, but we do know this...








What humans call "night"

is what our planet calls

"my shadow."


We also know that
by this time tomorrow,
all of us will be
more than a million and a half miles
from where we are now,
thanks to our orbiting around our local star.

By this time a year from now, 
we'll have completed a 600-million-mile orbit
around our local star and
we'll be back at the spot in our orbit
where we are now.

Best of all, every time you complete another orbit
you earn yourself a birthday party!

I apologize for any photos not adequately credited! Among the many images that aren’t mine are ones I’ve grabbed online over the years for for my classes and for my volunteer work with the organic and regenerative Hawaii Farmers Union United. When I grabbed them, I had no idea I’d be using them again on a website, so I didn’t always take the time to credit their sources. Since I can’t imagine conveying the message of the Passenger Planet Society without them, I hope you’ll let me know if you or someone you know deserves recognition for photos I’ve failed to credit.
