Find an Astronaut.


A few nights ago I was milking the goats, and aside from the glowing orbs of light on the front of the excursion which we fondly call headlights, and the lantern (which sits inside the trailer for the entirety of the milking time), it was completely pitch black out.

There was not a cloud in the sky, and I could see the stars very, very clearly.

I thought immediately of a famous quote, which somewhat explained the deep, utter amazement I felt:

For I have loved the stars too fondly, to be fearful of the night.

                                                          -- Galileo Galilei


Have a wonderful day, folks.

I love that quote! And Galileo was awesome! Have you read Starry Messenger? It is about him. I reviewed it a long time ago, for NaBloPoMo.

Nope! I've never even heard of that book before; I'll have to check that out sometime.
