I did not really notice how much I missed seeing the stars until tonight. I don't know what it is, ever since I was a kid whenever I felt any kind of disruption in myself I could look up to the night sky and see the stars. Something about just seeing them eased the pain...it made me think and feel differently. |
There was no specific mythology in myself about it, though I learned many of the constellations names and shapes when I was a child. There were gods, heroes and various other creatures placed in the sky. I am sad to look up and see many familiar shapes and not remember their names, or to remember names and not remember the shape their shape.
Over recent years, all I could see was dirt and maybe a few stars floating in the sky. Tonight, I could see them so clearly. They weren't calling to me, but I'm not sure how to express the sensation I got when I looked up into the sky tonight. It was like a peace, like there was something there that I've been missing. I know that there was some kind of inspiration...like lightning striking parts of my mind back into action.
I guess it's not too odd to imagine, I know that there have been cases of people going a little crazy if they don't see the sun for x amount of time, or visit the beach at least once a year. Perhaps there is something to this.
Perhaps I'll write further another time, it is off to sleep for me.
