One of my favorite moments in life is to get up in the wee hours of the morning and look up at the sky. Winter is especially great for this star gazing activity due to the longer night time skies.
Venus puts on an incredible show as it gently rises and moves with grace through the darkened night sky. For some reason, these moments of looking beyond and into that vastness of twinkly lights fills me with comfort and peace. There is a rhythm and steadiness in this process of universal movement that is not thwarted by anything we humans can do. I find that to be rather comforting.
