Make time to stare at the sky.
Take in its vastness.
Try to imagine how it feels to live without limitation.
Did you ever notice how the sky blankets us,
embraces us from above,
yet never smothers us?
Spend time with the sky in all kinds of weather,
at all times of day and night.
Watch it move from dark to light,
from blue to purple to red, orange, and gold.
Find a horse in a billowing cloud;
see a wagon with wheels flying high.
Shriek and scream at lightning that fills the sky
on a warm summer evening,
at thunder that rumbles right down to your toes.
Stargaze and find your place
in an unending universe.
The sky helps you remember how big life can be.
How small are the details.
And how starry-eyed we sometimes must be,
to think ourselves the center of it all.
