Night Sky

As far as stars are concerned, (in New York) we usually see less of the celestial and more of the celebrity type. Yet one evening, in good ol’ Brooklyn, I took to gazing and was amazed at their sheer, simplistic glory. Sans obstruction from cloud cover and light pollution, I basked in the vastness; aware of the immense distance between us but nonetheless enthralled by the visibility. It made me think of the beauty in vulnerability. Unmasked, uncovered, connecting. People that were formerly a ways off (and may still be physically) remain visible. And hence, able to be embraced. The unfathomable becomes tangible. As I reminisce, I’m reminded: “Don’t miss the beautiful.”

It’s never too far away.
