    It Brings Me..........

    Peace. Wonderful, joyous peace. I can lay out on a blanket & stare at the sky for hours. I can lay there & for a little while, the problems fade away. I become weightless. Sitting up on those clouds & just being free. Of the memories, the pain, the fear. It gives me...

    Sky

    I plan on doing this.  Looking and staring at the sky is another form of relaxation.  Since I have anxiety, doing this will help me.

    The Vastness Of The Universe

    Can be found in an open night sky...thousands upon thousand of stars sparkling in depths of the darkness...looking upon human existence as a small speck...like many of its kind....just one of billions...nothing special...nothing extra-ordinary. To be considered so small in...

    It's Like a Magical Canvas.

    At the breaking of dawn, it has that piercing, almost painfully electric blue color... throughout the day it changes, clouds shifting... at sunset any array of colors can splash themselves across the sky, smeared together like oil paint.  Then twilight, when things become...
