Go do that.
To see stars
You have step from the light into the darkness.
And stand still.
And look up.
Or, lay on your back.
And gaze into the depths of space.
And dream dreams
Big enough and bold enough to reach from here to there.
But we are too busy for such nonsense.
And, too cautious about the darkness.
I imagine the Magi of old not as great and noble kings,
But more like Tom Sawyer
And Huckleberry Finn
Lying on their backs and looking at the stars.
And, saying to one another
“Look! There is another one. It looks like a bear”
“And another, it looks like a fish.”
“Look! There’s a new one we’ve not seen before.”
“I am ready for an adventure. How about you?”
“Yes, Let’s go and see where it leads and what we find.”
