The other night, driving home for the first time in a long while, I kept getting distracted. I’d catch a little glimmer of light in the corner of my eye, and turn to look. It was the first time in a long time I’d been able to really see the stars. After I got home, I stood outside in the cold for a long while, just staring up at the stars.
I’d forgotten just how many there are, and how much I’d missed them.
