Some of my favorite memories have to do with star gazing at night. I grew up out in the country away from the lights of the city and you could see the stars almost every night. That’s where I learned to pick out the constellations. My favorite constellation has always been Pleiades (The Seven Sisters).
Last night there were no stars out, but it was a beautiful spring night and the moon was bright, so we lay in the yard and were mostly just quiet contemplating. It’s not often that there is time to just be quiet….it was nice. After that we sat on the porch swing and played with Ben the dog and talked to Seth for a while. It was a good night.
I’m excited that Spring has come to Norman and all the nights ahead of looking at the stars.
“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.”
