    If You Believe In Something Enough, It'll Become Reality...

    I haven't seen a shooting star since last summer. It was an incredible experience. I saw six shooting stars that night. It was a clear night, full of silver, twinkling stars, and I was with my crush at the time on the river's shore. We were laying there, staring at the sky...

    Last Summer

    I've seen several, but the most memorable was definitely the summer of 2008.  My two best friends and I were skinny dipping.  We had been drinking and gossiping and being girly water nymphs.  At the time, we were jumping up and down in the pool and comparing the...

    They Are Quick!

    I have seen many shooting stars at various times.  I did not know you were supposed to make wishes on them.

    Made a Wish

    It was within the past month.  I thought I saw two but I'm not sure if that is even possible.  Maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me.  Nonetheless, I made the same wish twice.  And after what happened last night, it looks like it will come true.

    I Am A Star Gazer

    There is nothing like lying on your back on a clear night, miles away from city lights, looking up into the universe and enjoying the massive creation of the Great Creator/ Great Spirit/God. Looking into this massive creation that appears to have no end and understanding it all...

    I just saw one tonight!

    Been awhile since the last time I caught an eye for one. :) If death is ugly, I'd say the death of a star as seen from earth, is the most beautiful one! :) Its the only kind of death that I know where I actually feel happy and amused. Sparkle In Peace (S.I.P.) sweet star! lmao

    I had never seen a shooting star before up until last week.  I was sitting outside looking at the beautiful night sky with a friend of mine and I actually saw three that night!  It was pretty exciting!  I loved it!

    " Shooting Stars "

    Someone once told me that when you see a shooting star you are exactly where you are supposed to be. The place in time where you belong. I still find comfort in that.

    That Night

    We were both a bit drunk, I can't lie, but everything is crystal clear in my head. Even though there were at least six other people lying, watching the night sky, we felt separate, closed off from the rest of the world, well, I did at least. "A shooting star!" I couldn't contain...
