So Peaceful - So Awe-inspiring....

There have been some nights, that I was blessed enough to look up and realize the sky was just full of stars - it was clear and just beautiful.  When I was in college, in the Blue Ridge Mountains, there were some spectacular views - and a group of us would drive out somewhere with no buildings, no people and just star gaze!  

Now, I get so wrapped up in life - and hectic evenings, it is rare that I go out and look up at the sky but when I do - still makes me feel even more sure that there is a God in heaven looking down at me - and loving and taking care of me.  

There is a hammock in my backyard that needs to be used for just this thing - a little star gazing - a little reminder that God is there - watching over me!

I hope Halloween night is clear because I will be outside with my neighbors hanging out and handing out candy - and it gets pretty dark while we are sitting there - it would be an awesome time to look up!! Going to the mountains in a couple of weekends - can't wait - may even take the convertible - then I KNOW I will see an awesome sight! I hope you are able to get out and see them - it is very calming and peaceful - I think!

AMEN Sister AMEN!!! Thanks destiney!!

I bet the desert is a great place to see stars!<br />

Thanks for the comment! fav times - taking physics trip out to a place called Zzyzx...California gazing...telescopes....awesome friends. And the beauty of stars without city lights....

Will it hold two? mmmmmmmmmmm

Wow girlmcgirly - I hadn't thought of that - what an awesome thought - so many things we could probably learn from those tales! Thanks for commenting!

Don't you hate it when you get old enough to realize all the complications of something like this - when we were little, I know there were mosquitoes - but that didn't bother us! LOL! I hear you justwonderingif - hard to get out and do it between the weather and life being so hectic - I don't remember the last time I did it - AND having someone special to do it with has been an issue too!! LOL!

I know exactly what you mean.... I've done this and felt this way myself. But, now a days, life just gets in the way of everything. And, even if it was less hectic, the mosquitoes followed by cold weather around here would ruin the lying on a blanket, star gazing experience anyway. lol

I know - the related groups are hardly ever related... not even a key word, but I also notice that when you do a search for a group and you do the CLASSIC search - almost NONE of the stories are actually related to the group you are looking for - they are usually about men watching people with their wives - really - and other pretty sexual stuff - I'm searching for "I went to college" - what does a man watching a wife have to do with that??? LOL!!<br />

Back to the sky though, I had never realized until last year that the Morning Star is actually Venus! The things you learn when you are helping your kids on their school projects! : )

Dorothy!! Please join the harem, we don't mind sharing Ptman and Chris! ;-) hehehe!!!!!

you bringing the Harem with you? Maybe Chris needs to bring his too - I heard you both have one! And fancy that, I am not in either one!! : )

that does make a lot of sense D, but right there. :)

Bring it on PTMAN - a hammock and a Harem Tent - they seem to go together, don't they?!

if you don't use i'm gonna put up my harem tent there and waych the stars myself. :)
