This is how a lot of Chicagoans look when the sun comes out for a few minutes. We run outside and just stand there, until the clouds come again.
I think we forget that we are attached to, and depend upon, a star for our very existence. Isn’t that amazing, when you think about it? We look at the night sky…well, we don’t often get to do that in Chicago but you might be able to, and see all the stars against the black velvet night and rarely say to ourselves, “We have one of those. It’s right here. I can see it when it wakes us up.” But it’s true. We have a star of our very own!
I do think about the star we named Sun and then I think of all the flaming stars out there and somewhere, someone is look at their star and thinking the very same thing.
