meteor

Last night, we lay under the stars on a makeshift bed. As our eyes adjusted, we tracked satellites across an inky sky.

Our conversation meandered lazily; the scale of galaxies, the barking of neighborhood dogs, a hardware store buy, the upcoming release of my new book

Then a meteor streaked across our view of the sky and we gasped in delight. Its passage was a simple thing that lit up our life.

We’re insanely busy over the next several months. Lots of travel, lots of work. The days bleed into each other. The respite of night passes too fast.

And yet…

If we allow it…

There is time to hold hands and marvel together at a vast and brilliant sky.
