We can all take a lesson from children. They notice everything. They look up, and they look down. They stop to look, really look, and to wonder. They remember what they see, and if an adult is around they ask questions.
The wonder children see is always there. We just have to stop and look up and look down. I did that tonight.
I looked up.
I looked down.
The moon began to rise. Do you see it on the left? I stayed to watch, and it looked like the Northern Lights were in the sky. The sky changes quickly, so I pay attention.
The moon is high. The sky and trees are beautiful. It reminds me of summer camp and slow evenings of wonder. It reminds me of the lyrics to Taps, played by a bugle.
Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.
Take it from children, look up and look down. I do.
