It's In The Stars

Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight.
I wish I may; I wish I might
Have the wish I wish tonight.

Remember that from kid-time? When I was a pipsqueak I'd dash outside at first dark and my dad would usually already be there. He'd tell me to look up and find my first star and make a wish. I got so I could pick out the same star and it became "mine", and probably the same ritual played across the country but it felt as if the star was mine and could see me down here. Kinda like God is/does.

Anyway, my wish was always for something like a new doll, a 45 (that's a record, folks), or to be told I was adopted. Go ahead, admit it, there was a point in your life when you would have sworn you were adopted. YOUR REAL PARENTS wouldn't be so mean.

Of course, in today's world it is possible to pay a price and get a star to give to someone. Not likely to happen in this family. We do live in the country and can still see the stars. They are ALL ours and ALL yours.

Pity, some people don't even know they are out there, what with the bright lights of the big cities.

Get out of town. Take a carload of people with you on your "daycation".
Look at how big a real cow is. Watch the corn grow. Skip rocks. Stay long enough to see the stars, say a poem, make a wish.

I'm thinking...world peace.
