When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand Surgery 6/9/1994 Mastectomy: Left, Right Surgery 12/19/1994 Reconstruction (left); Reconstruction (right) Surgery 6/9/1995 Lymph node removal: Left Surgery 9/19/2013 Reconstruction (left); Reconstruction (right)

https://earthsky.org/favorite-star-patterns/pleiades-star-cluster-enjoys-worldwide-renown

The name of this star cluster in Japanese is "Subaru" thus the star logo on the car of the same name.

The eagle-eyed will note there are only six stars on the Subaru logo. This is consistent with the fact that one can only see six of the seven sisters with the naked eye. Two of the stars are so close together, they appear to be one larger star. Something fun to watch for next time you're on the road.
