Tonight was a welcome break from the crushing humidity we have been experiencing. Sometimes when everyone is deep in sleep, I like to walk outside and look at the stars. At 12:30 this evening there was a surprisingly cool tinge in the air and the stars were bright. Can anyone tell me the planet that is extra easy to spot right now? The best part are the sounds; crickets and frogs singing in harmony, a late night train rumbling through town, a strange howling far away. A sense of nostalgia washed over me, remembering how these sounds have always been there. When winter comes, they will die away until next year, to be replaced by brutal winter winds and the utter silence of the snowfall. I love all seasons, but there is something special about the sounds that play across the years of your life.
