I can't remember the rest of that song right now,
But I want to write
while the feelings are still there
Because this makes me happy
And if they go before I'm done
I'll just go back outside till they come back.
There's a gazillion stars out there
My grade 2 teacher used to tell us that the highest number in the world
is a "googooplex"
Well, there's a googooplex and one out there
I stood and watched and stood and looked
Saw two and a half falling stars
Plus the ones I could only catch out of the corner of my eye
When I looked
They were gone
I saw a happy face
The Big Dipper
The North Star
(That's the extent of my stellar knowledge)
I saw one that looked like it was flashing blue and red
Like a police car
(Maybe it was speeding!)
And though I am not an extremely spiritual person
Once in a while the spirits hit me good
I felt like all the stars were spirits
Giving me strength
Knowing what a hard evening I had
Struggling with my "stinkin' thinking"
And I thank the spirits
For watching over me
Showing me that I am not alone in my struggle
That a higher power is there
If I choose to accept it.
Now that its morning I discovered that my aunt, and Dagmar's aunt, passed away yesterday. Is there significance in what I felt yesterday as I was star-gazing? I definitely believe so.
