Serendipitously caught Supermoon this past weekend, sunrise this morning, and am now enjoying the Perseid meteor shower in the backyard. If I don’t have to get up in four hours to get ready for work, I’d brew myself a pot of loose leaf Alishan oolong tea, and just hang out in the backyard until 3am. Apparently that is when the meteor shower is the brightest.
I am not a big sky buff. In fact, I am probably the least qualified person you know to show you where Orion is, let alone Perseid constellation. But more and more, I am drawn upward. Just look up at the sky! Our sky offers us a glimpse into the wonders of our universe.
My puppy runs around in the yard, sniffing in the cool night air, wondering why we are out so late. “Oh there’s one!” I pointed out another comet detritus that just slammed into our planet to the pup. She looked up and wagged her tail. Love. Mother Earth. Peace. Brilliant. Heavenly.
