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.

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

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

I like to look at the moon then count the stars
