The picture here from my Facebook friend The Idealist brought back some rather pleasant memories. In the past and to a much lesser degree even today I have often sat out on a starry night and talked to myself about life. These were often times where I was approaching meltdown due to having so many people around me. One of the main purposes was to be alone with my thoughts so, no, there was no one with me.
Many of those 2am nights were while I was attending college at Purdue University. It seems I was never along except for these times. I shared a room with Bob for four years and even though I really liked him I needed my alone time. So, about once a month you could find me at 2am along the railroad track out by the airport looking at the sky and dreaming about life. I often played a game where I tried to imagine what I would be doing 20, 30, or even 40 years in the future. On a tangent note, there just doesn’t seem to be as many stars in the sky as there were during those years. 🙂
