Nights Such as These

…when can one can drive out to a favorite spot, say near Rock Cut State Park in Northern Illinois, USA, for instance, and gaze on a star-strewn sky in all its infinite glory. Skies that inspired the pens of writers, scientists, philosophers for thousands of years, and to realise that in those pens, the papers, typewriters or laptops (in my case) upon which they scribbled, none of them ever had — or could — seen what they described or what inspired them.

I will never see a star in person; I have only this place, this silence, and billions of whispering lights calling me to an above I will never know.
