Night Sky – Every time I look up at the stars in the night sky, it feels like a new adventure. The one thing that is constant though, is my childlike wonder of the faraway stars from my wonder years of growing up. My life now has spanned 60 plus years, but on nights such as this, when I stare at the stars, I revert to being 10 years old again, camping out in the backyard with my best friend. The stars in the night sky above give me the peace to be myself at any moment in my life. I can be driving alone at night, walking a wilderness path, kissing my gal in the moonlight. I look up and I am 10 years old again. Even though there are so many stars in the night sky, and they look so close to one another. My adult mind tells me they are light years apart. My 10-year-old heart tells me all I have to do is reach out and scoop all the glitter up in my hands, swirl the stars together so they can feel the warmth of each other. Above and beyond in the night skies are the answers to all the mystery, of how our lives, and our world began—and how it will end. Every night, each new adventure, it’s like nothing ever stops happening.
