The stars at night are big and bright....

With much on my mind tonight, I wandered out to my porch for some fresh air. Yes, it has finally cooled off a bit. There is a big tree in front of my balcony, but I can lean out and look up.

It is "clear" here, but I am confused. I couldn't see a single star in the sky. Honestly, I really thought I would be able to see at least a few here. The further north you get from the equator, the less anyone is able to see. And city lights dim the stars. I saw several small aircraft pass by...but no stars.

I have seen the southern skies full of bright shining stars. It is amazing and a sight that will always keep you yearning for more. I feel sorry for people who have never seen the night sky lit up with stars. I miss it.

I have no star to wish on here. But I have my memories and my hopes and desires for the future.
