Journal Page Creations...Day 70
One of my favorite things to do as a child was to go out in my grandparents' backyard, lie on my back, and stargaze. What was out there in that great black spinning void? I would try to see the images in the constellations, but no matter how hard I tried, I could never see a dog, a queen, or Pegasus. Yet it didn't worry me -- it was comforting to lose myself in the bigness, the sparkly blackness, as the air cooled around me, and the grass became wetter, and the crickets and cicadas became louder and louder....Instead of feeling small and insignificant, I would get bigger and bigger. I need to remember that feeling, as I rush about my day.
