I Love to Look At the Stars

    It's very rare to be able to see

    such a clear night sky, and even rarer to actually see a starry night sky. Which was why it was a lovely surprise, coming home mentally tired from work, to glance up and see twinkling little gems spread out before me...like pinpricks of light through a dark cloth. It was...

    Sometimes at night time

    if it's pretty cool out I'll go and lay on the ground just looking at the stars. I contemplate life and wonder who else would be looking at the stars at that time. Wonder who can see the constellations. Who likes to make their own constellations? I love when the moon is full on...

    I can just look up and lose myself

    and all my worries. Most amazing thing :) Last night I opened my window and rested my head right in front of it feeling the cold breeze. And I seriously knelt there for probably like fifteen minutes. Eyes closed just resting there... Thinking about absolutely nothing. It was...

    Every night I sit out on my patio looking up at

    the heavens. It's something I've always done from a very young age when I used to go out and gaze at the stars and planets with my binoculars. Coming from the cold I'd write down in a journal what I've seen and kept a log of meteors, satellites, planets and my favourite...

    going on a picnic then laying looking at the stars talking for hours. Maybe one day that will happen. One day.

    I swear I saw a shooting star (or something

    that looked like that) tonight. It was so beautiful; light blue and shining, streaked in the air for no more than a seconds view. Did anybody else see anything tonight?

    It's so hard to comprehend how big the stars

    really are because they look so tiny to us. When I look up to the sky at night, I just wish I could fly all the way into space and explore. Just float around up there.

    I love going outside at night throw a blanket

    on the ground just to observe the beautiful starlit sky. The most beautiful nighttime sky can be observed by driving far from the city lights. The sky appears to have millions of sparkling diamonds and if you're lucky you will witness a falling star...don't forget to make a wish...

    When I was a kid this was a magical experience

    for me. Now, I feel inadequate because I know there is a map with a name for every star and yet I do not know it. I still look up at the sky through the eyes of a very small child. It's awe striking.

    It's relaxing. And I like to wonder about the

    sky and wonder if we are tiny bacteria that play a roll for something bigger. I also wonder if humans are just a cancer destroying earth just like it does to our cells. My thoughts when I smoke and watch the night sky.

    And I'm staring at the moon. I saw a shooting star. And thought of you.. I sang a lullaby. By the waterside and knew. If you were here, I'd sing to you. You're on the other side. As the skyline splits in two. I'm miles away from seeing you.. I can see the stars. From America. I...

    Stars are so magical.

    I could stare at the night sky for hours. It just makes me so calm and happy. It makes me feel like there's something more out there, something meningful, and that I'm connected to something.
