Keep looking up.

Happy Saturday!  I hope you're having an awesome Labor Day weekend.  :) Mine has been pretty wonderful, thus far but.... Labor Day?  Really??  It's nearly startling. I'm also not quite ready to say goodbye to summer yet but hey, c'est la vie, huh? :)

  All we can really do sometimes is wake up and just trust.  Trust that things will work out, trust ourselves, trust time, trust our decisions,  trust the universe, and trust that everything is falling into place exactly the way it should; the way you want and need it to be. You know what else to do?  Keep making wishes, always. :)

"There is a fundamental reason why we look at the sky with wonder and longing—for the same reason that we stand, hour after hour, gazing at the distant swell of the open ocean. There is something like an ancient wisdom, encoded and tucked away in our DNA, that knows its point of origin as surely as a salmonid knows its creek. Intellectually, we may not want to return there, but the genes know, and long for their origins—their home in the salty depths. But if the seas are our immediate source, the penultimate source is certainly the heavens......

The spectacular truth is—and this is something that your DNA has known all along—the very atoms of your body—the iron, calcium, phosphorus, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and on and on—were initially forged in long-dead stars. This is why, when you stand outside under a moonless, country sky, you feel some ineffable tugging at your innards. We are star stuff. Keep looking up."
