My father introduced me to the constellations as a child. We would first look for the milky way and then start finding the summer constellations. Of all my siblings I was the only one really interested. Even with meteor showers, one by one my sisters would slip into the house until I was alone with the heavens, stars and my thoughts. This is still one of my favorite things to do.
night sky so clear I see my childhood through father’s eyes
alone in the dark watching the Perseids shower all night thoughts blazing
