I've been busy lately, doing the usual things that somehow seem to take up a lot of my time. I feel like I've been running around, doing what needs to be done, going on autopilot, everything seems so repetitive and routine. It's like my brain has tuned out and my body is just going through the motions. I can't believe that summer's almost over! Where does the time go? I've got to break out of this rut that seemed to have appeared out of nowhere and taken a lot of my time. I need a moment to recenter myself, find the balance, and just be.
In half an hour, the sun's going to set. It'll be perfect setting for some solitude and reflection. I'm packing up some snacks and taking some water to the beach. Tonight, the Perseids meteor shower peaks in North America (and the Northern Hemisphere). Seeing some falling stars early this morning made me realize that I need to stop and take some time for me and enjoy life. I rather like the falling stars, because they're a beautiful sight. When I was younger, we used to wish on every single star that fell. That was a lot of fun.
So I'm off to enjoy the heavens for a few hours, hopefully, in sweet solitude to sort out my thoughts, to think about everything and nothing at all. It'll be a great time to reflect, to dream, and to just enjoy the moment and majesty of the universe we're in. It'll remind me of just how very tiny I am in the cosmic picture. I'm seeing stars tonight, and I'm looking forward enjoying the fantastic celestial show and making wishes on the falling stars. Life can be amazing and wondrous. I just need to take the time to look around and appreciate the world around me.
