Wednesday Wisdom: To Infinity and Beyond — The Eternal Embrace of Stargazing

“Tonight I walk. I am watching the sky. I think of the people who came before me and how they knew the placement of stars in the sky, watched the moving sun long and hard enough to witness how a certain angle of light touched a stone only once a year.

Without written records, they knew the gods of every night, the small, fine details of the world around them and of immensity above them.”

— Linda Hogan, Walking
