There is precious little hope to be got out of whatever keeps us industrious, but there is a chance for us whenever we cease work and become stargazers. ~H.M. Tomlinson
Last night at my uncle's house, once the sun had set and we all sat out on the lawn listening to our friends and family try their hand at karaoke, my sister remarked how beautiful the night sky was, all studded with stars. Living in a big city, she doesn't get the chance to stargaze like we can in the country. Of all the fun and exciting things we could have been doing on a long, glorious weekend I loved that the highlight was sitting back, relaxed and satisfied, nowhere to be and nothing to do, gazing at a starry night masterpiece. It reminds me of when we were kids and my dad would point out constellations and astound us with his knowledge of astronomy. Now there's an iPhone app that tells you which constellation is which. The app is way cool, but my dad, with his stored and ready knowledge, is still cooler.
Happy Labor Day, friends. Hope you get the chance to rest and relax and maybe stargaze a little.
