The Night Sky


This is what the night sky looks like at my house.  I'm far enough away from city lights I can see each and every star in its perfection.

My goal is to one day learn the constellations.  I have a book, but somehow lack the motivation to lay in my driveway and learn them in their places.  It's too hot, too cold, too many mosquitoes or I'm too tired.  Not to mention, the concrete gets hard.

But, I like to stand and look.  I try to stay long enough to spot a plane in the night.  Call me crazy, but I like to imagine where it's flying and perhaps the story of one or two of the passengers.  Guess that's just the writer in me.  Late night and early morning flights have the best stories.  Maybe one day I'll get brave and actually commit them to paper...
