It’s a long way, isn’t it?
A long way.
Are they real do you think or are they an illusion?
Oh, they are real.
Can they be so many?
I read the other day that what we see is just a fraction of how many there are.
Do you think it ends?
It just goes on and on?
But you’d think it has to end somewhere?
Maybe it’s round like the earth.
Like Voyager will one day come back?
Possibly. It would answer a lot of questions.
I never get tired of looking up there.
It’s overwhelming, isn’t it?
Yes. So many. So far.
We are part of it, aren’t we?
Yes, however small we are, we are part of the great universe.
Even though in reality, we are nothing but an infinitesimal dot within it.
Humbling isn’t it.
Very much so.
I’m glad you are here.
So am I.
I don’t feel so alone when I’m with you.
Neither do I.

As a kid I used to love looking up at the stars. Then we got street lights.
I’m lucky I can still see into the night sky
I have to go far away from habitation. And in Britain, that isn’t easy
They look with closed eyes 🙂
Liked this one a lot. A heartwarming conversation.
Thanks so much.
