Sometimes I need a reminder


...as to why I don't go to bed at a decent hour. I crawled into bed last night at the late hour of 10pm and fell right asleep. Must have been tired, right? Well I was tired. Until 1am when I woke up in a panic. Don't know what about, but there was definitely panicky feelings involved. I was also hot. So I kicked off my blankets and reached above my head to unlatch the double window that I love. It swung open and a cool breeze rushed in, brushing my hair, my face, and soothing my racing heart. Again, no clue why it was racing. I looked up out of the window above my head, past the long sheer white curtains flowing out towards me with the breeze, and saw one single star peering through the lightly clouded night sky. Shining down on me. I fixed my gaze on her, and took in the smell and soft whispers of the wind until I feel asleep again. Calm. Serene.

Am I the only one that thinks of stars as being female? Okay, thought so.

So is the sun female? is it all stars? now I am just full of questions.

You're a star.

Maybe you should take a star census. BTW, I'm female.

Oh my goodness. I LOVED this window. I passed many o' nights away peering through it's white curtained windows gazing at the stars (and yelling at drunk neighbors across the street...). I think stars are females. Have you seen Stardust?! Thank you, Claire Daines, and Sarah Jones for being great stars.
