And might I add .... Friday night when I went outside for a bit to try a second glimpse at the Perseid meteor showers I had a wonderful time even though I only saw 2 meteors. The air was less humid and there was light cloud cover. The were clouds with just enough wispiness to make them feel close and touchable. It was whitish fluff against deep blue where the stars shone through. Because of the contrast, light over dark blue instead of the usual white on light blue, one didn't see shapes in the clouds but instead saw shapes in the dark between them. I felt I could not only reach up and grab myself some cloud, but reach through the spaces and have me a star, too. It was lovely and spiritual and joyful.
