vingt-sept: When Gravity Holds You Down

Watched a bit of the meteor shower from Big Cottonwood Canyon last night. The moon was rebelling with brightness, but we were still able to witness a few absolutely beautiful shooting stars. The fact that, as the ultimate source describes, those massive, luminous balls of plasma held together by gravity exist out there, in the vast arena that we call space, and that one of them is hugely responsible for life on our planet, is a hard concept for me to grasp. Makes me feel insignificant, really. And although I enjoyed the view from Guardman's Pass, I kept wishing I was sitting on the moon instead. Looks peaceful up there.
