So, I step outside to retrieve all the bags out from my car and am completely stopped in my tracks by the moon. Have you seen it tonight? There she is right in front of me, half her shape surrounded by this soft off yellow glow.
And there are all these fireflies constantly trying distract me, but I just stood there staring up at that moon because at that moment, I didn't want to see anything else.
So, if you stepped outside this very moment, you could be gazing upon the same very moon as I, and suddenly the distance that separates us all does not seem so significant.

Instead of catching up on GoT last night, I took an evening walk with Brody and Daisy. Brody likes to run ahead and scout out the area while Daisy just looks at me all wide-eyed. It’s ok though because she’s all but 5lbs and she cries whenever I leave the house.
There were crickets and frogs that were singing me a song while bats flew overhead. And there were the occasional weird owl sounds and a faint yip in the distance that could’ve been a coyote or just a dog. It doesn’t matter which though because HELLO did you see that mofo of a spider I killed earlier?
Truth be told, the only creatures I fear are the 2-legged kind. But I fear them less and less with each passing day.
I like standing there and just staring up at the night sky and as each minute passes, the stars get brighter and brighter and the darkness doesn’t seem so intimidating.
Isn’t it just amazing that we’re all just star matter and our bodies came from a star that freakin’ exploded? “We are in the universe and the universe is in us.” Good stuff.
Tonight was a reminder for me that you’re incredible, I’m incredible, life is incredible and the coolest thing is that the very best memories have yet to be made. I’m pretty freakin excited. Are you? If not, you should be.
