It's dark. The air is crisp. The sky is clear. Quiet. Then, your eyes adjust, stars start to appear and there it is, a constellation. First Orion with his belt, then you make out Taurus and the Pleiades lined up in a row. You turn back and there is the Big Dipper, the little Dipper, the North Star and Cassiopeia.
Friends that have been hiding in the bright of the day come out and remind you that in fact, you are not alone. That is an awesome thing.
