Makes Me Glad To Be Alive Every Time.

Today I saw a shooting star. It was a rather long streak but unmistakable to me. I instantly feel at peace when I see a shooting star. I even remember a great number of the ones I have seen.

The last time I saw a shooting star was last October. I was in a horrid mood but as soon as I saw that light streak across the sky, I was at peace again. It does that to me every time.

The coolest shooting star I recall happened many years ago while I was walking down the street. It was a huge ball of fire in the sky plummeting straight down towards Earth. As it got closer I could visibly see chunks breaking off. Those chunks fell toward Earth in parallel until the whole fiery mess just dissipated.

I know they mean nothing to most people. For me however, I am always left with a renewed sense of hope and inner peace after seeing one.
