A hot night and a beautiful sky.
We dangled our feet in the water and looked up.
The wonder and conversation began.
The quarter moon a few days ago is now a half moon.
Did the first caveman watch the changes in the moon,
or did he watch the changes in the plants?
Which was most important?
What was the biggest discovery?
Hubby thinks it was figuring out that moonlight is the reflection of the sun,
and the Earth revolves around the sun.
I think it was discovering the Earth is round and not flat.
We talked about the changing colors in the sky.
How did early artists paint the sky?
How did they feel when looking at what we are looking at tonight?
I wonder what Vincent was thinking when he painted Starry Night.
We walked through history and science and art, together.
We talked for a long time.
The sky can open up wonders.
