At The Stars

to look up at the stars and miss the cockroach drowning in my vomit, never!

when I stare at the stars I feel wonder and awe and also how small I really am , but then again it helps me realize just how small my problems are too in comparison. Who can feel sad under starshine ?=-)

IT boggles the mind to think that each of those stars is a sun in it's own right. Most of the ones that are visible to your eyes are actually many times larger and brighter than the sun. They're dim becsue they're so far away. For example if you shrunk the earth's orbit around the sun down to the size of a dime, and placed that dime on the end of an airport runway.....the nearest star would still be about 1&1/2 miles away! Basically at the other end of that runway.

When I was a child someone told me after a person dies he/she goes to heaven and they become stars....I used to gaze at the stars often at night and wonder they are so lucky cause they can see all from above..and it should be beautiful..

It is a beautiful way to have a child, and indeed us in our adult lives also, to think of something so inevitable.

Night sky is just so wonderful with the clear weather like that, you can see the beautiful stars. Breathtaking. Nice inset image.

While you're looking up, I'm secretly sneaking glimpses of you and smiling.

Wow, then would rate this story +1up. . . more if I could. teehee^^

I like to look at the moon then count the stars

Of course you do, and when you're counting the stars, I'll be looking at the moon, talking and distracting you. There's so much city light in the sky and clouds where I live, there's only one good day for night watching every two weeks or so, but when I get away from the city, spectacular!
