Oh there’s a Shooting star!!! Make a wish! Eh??
That’s what we do when we see a shooting star. We make a wish!!!
This was a nostalgic inspired creation. As a young child in my hometown of Pathum Thani, I have no memories of skyscrapers or any other obstructions to my view of the sky and the stars. I could wander outside to the pond behind my house and stargaze all night long. I loved watching the heavens and searching for shooting stars that I might be able to have my childhood wishes granted. As I gazed in the cosmic expanse, I wished that every airplane that flew by was a shooting star.
One of my favorite memories is of the Leonid Meteor Showers. I do not recall the exact summer or fall night in which it occurred but I’ll always remember the beauty that appeared before my eyes. I stood out in the darkness and was transfixed by the multitude of heavenly bodies streaking by like rockets. Red, pink, blue “stars” sped into my line of sight and out over the horizon. It was as if the universe was launching a rainbow of luminescence for my personal amusement.
I’ll never forget that night.
I walk into each night with longing for the brilliance of that night to be repeated and, sometimes, I’m rewarded for my patient searching. These days, Pathumthani has grown into a city of 300,000. The city lights dim my view. The heavens are obscured.
That’s why I love the stars, the sky, the moon and the sun. I think the natural world that surrounds us is wonderful and amazing 🙂
