20 March 2012

Equinox Eve, March 20, 2012. Outside tonight, a moonless sky bright with planets and stars. The even of the vernal equinox, Ostara, 2012, and record breaking heat across the continent.

Being outside under the stars is for me one way of going to church. It is a tangible experience because my senses inform me of the star field and the sphere I am on, and of the enormity of the supposedly spherical expanding universe. All those stars, even just the ones I can see, shedding light on me, literally particles from those stars permeating my body, sending photons into my eyes, so looking at the night sky is for me to experience connection at the deepest.

Blessed Equinox to all!
