I was on a cruise ship, middle of the sea. Nothing but the blackness covering me like a blanket. The only light I see is from the sky, the stars winking down at me, the moon shining peacefully into the darkness.
I lay down on a deckchair. I want to catch those stars, I want to touch them. I settle for counting them, straining my neck so I can see more. Neverending, the galaxy is expanding. The galaxy is dying. It really depends on how you look at it. I wonder if other planets can see us, I imagine our sun as the tiniest but the brightest star there. Beauty.

I was blessed to be there, no pollution but the true nature surrounding me. Cold sea air whipping around me, drying my pool wet hair. Nothing covers the stars, nothing covers the moon. I wanted to be there forever, but you’ve got to keep moving on.
