“Magic exists. Who can doubt it, when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.”
~ Nora Roberts
I believe in magic, every time I look at the stars in the sky long enough the feeling of magic runs through me. The longer you stare the more they appear, captivating you more and more second by second. I remember the first time I saw the night sky encrusted with stars in depth. I was 18 years old and woke up at 3am to drive to an air field, where we were going to set up a stall for a flea market. We wanted to get there early as it was first come, first serve. Having 3 hours to kill we decided to lay on the car roof looking at the clear sky. Our surroundings were pitch black – no buildings, no street lights, just open fields. I had never before seen the sky so encrusted with stars. I was drawn in and magic seemed to be all around me, one shooting star, two shooting stars. Then the sun started to rise and they all faded away.
Star gazing is beautiful, it creates another world around you. Have you ever seen any constellations while star gazing? The only ones I have seen are the Big Dipper, Little Dipper and Orion’s Belt.
