For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream. – Vincent Van Gogh
The most amazing, awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping view I’ve ever experienced was the millions of stars, galaxies, and planets that draped the Earth the night we spent on top of the mountain at Kitt Peak Observatory in Arizona. In the dead of night I walked outside alone, my breath taken away at how clearly I could see the universe above us, how the Milky Way was so defined, and the sound of absolute nothingness, except for my breath. I still get goosebumps thinking of that sight. It was so surreal. You have to escape light pollution before you can really see the night sky. Just to give you an idea of how bad the light pollution is, you could see Phoenix brightly lit up, which was over 100 miles away! That night sky I saw? I have yet to top that image.
Ready for today’s mystery what is it?!? picture? I promise you it’s not nearly as easy as yesterday’s image. I love a good challenge, don’t you?
What Is It?!?
“Come sit for a spell in this rocking chair …” is a typical Southern greeting, and almost nothing is as soothing as sitting in an antique rocking chair with its wicker bottom, the gentle creak of the wood as you rock back and forth. Yes, in case you couldn’t already tell, yesterday’s picture is of the woven wicker bottom of a rocking chair.
