Narcissit? Who me?

When you wish upon a star.

The other night I was feeling very nostalgic. It was the night of the Perseid meteor shower and I went and watched it.

One of my most cherished memories from high school is laying in my field with five of my friends, watching a meteor shower. It was beautiful, and amazing. So this time I went out again, to marvel at the sights of the universe flying by. But this time I did it alone. I laid in the dark on the cold wet grass, and watched the heavens light up overhead. It was lonely, and it was beautiful, and I missed everyone that I watched with last time so much I could hardly stand it.

I loved that night too! I also think of the night we laid in your basement watching that storm sometimes.

I think about that night too! Wasn't it weird that we could see so much looking out a basement window?

I guess so... although those are large basement windows.
