Weekly Wisdom........

"There is a sacredness in tears.
They are not the mark of weakness, but of power.
They are messengers of overwhelming grief and of unspeakable love."

Washington Irving

Have you ever slept under the stars?

Have you ever just rolled out a swag and slept under the stars? If you haven't, then I strongly suggest you try it, no matter what age you are.
I am 52 and I love sleeping with my doors and windows wide open and feeling the breeze on my face, but I still like to have a roof over my head.
Until the other night!
There is something so incredibly wonderful about lying down on a swag and looking straight up into a clear night sky full of millions of stars and having a big bright moon smiling down on you. I was in total awe.
Don't get me wrong...I have star watched many times before, but only briefly and then slipped into the comfort of a nice warm, cozy bed under a roof. This is so different. I can't really explain the sensation I felt. I found it so hard to close my eyes and sleep as I didn't want to miss a moment.
There is something so moving and breathtaking about being at one with the universe for just that moment.....
This photo is what I woke up to. Life is good.

~Blessings to all~
