I sat out on the back porch and just stared up at the heavens. As they are want to do, they shift from tiny sparkles on a big black dome, to points of light floating in the vast expanse. I sat out there for a few minutes watching, and listening to the crickets and frogs (did I mention I grew up on a "ranchette"?) when suddenly all the critters around me got very quiet. At about the same time I noticed a very bright object (it may have been Mars) that was obviously a planet and not a star, and suddenly I was filled with this vertigo as I could sense "up" not as the opposite of gravity, but as the perpendicular to the solar plane.
It only lasted for a few seconds, but it was rather interesting. I felt connected to the universe as a whole for just a moment, which was sort of cool.
I'm going to be randomly depositing more of this type of talk into my journal, but I know it's not everyone's cuppa, so if you want to be able to see it, leave a comment and I'll add you to a filter for it.
On a more mundane, but FUN note, there's this "Sticker Maker" or Button Maker, or something... so I made some (and stole one)!
