Today Brandi from Not Your Average Ordinary has written a lovely post. I am a big fan of her blog and having her here as a guest blogger is pretty awesome! Hope you all enjoy.
A year after I finished college, I found myself on a tiny island far off the coast of New Hampshire for a week-long conference. The strange thing is that I don’t remember much of what was said at the conference, but I do remember the chill of the sea water, the stillness of the hallways in the old Victorian hotel, and the sky at night. It was brilliant – I had never seen so many stars before. One night, a new friend and I sat in the gazebo watching the shooting stars. They fell like confetti.
But it wasn’t until years later, lying on a rock in the Grand Canyon that my eyes had the proper chance to see the Milky Way in all its glory. Like lights and dust. And I knew at the heart of it all was a magnificent power, one that glowed on wavelengths we couldn’t see with our eyes – the super massive black hole at the center of the universe.
There’s real magic in the night sky. I think we should all spend a little more time gazing up and dreaming.
