One of my absolute favourite things to do in the summer is stargaze. When I think back to some of my fondest memories as a kid, they are sitting around a camp fire by the lake with family and friends playing games, eating s'mores, and laughing, followed by late night stargazing on the top of our houseboat or on the sandy shores.
May you spend many hours gazing at the summer stars. In awe of the vastness of the universe and the satisfaction of knowing we are apart of it all.
Summer Stars by Carl Sandburg
BEND low again, night of summer stars.
So near you are, sky of summer stars,
So near, a long arm man can pick off stars,
Pick off what he wants in the sky bowl,
So near you are, summer stars,
So near, strumming, strumming,
So lazy and hum-strumming.
From my heart to yours,
