While we were at the Oakley parade we were next to some cute kids. They were from out of town. Their mom was asking questions about where we lived. We started listed off the reasons why we love living here. I have mentioned it before on the blog but with our house selling on Thursday, fingers crossed, I am reminded once again of why I love living here. True, living in Logan was great but it doesn't feel like home anymore.
One of the big reasons why I love living out here is the fact that I can go outside at night and see the stars. There is one street light on our road, which is about a half-mile away. A few of the houses do have lights but the light pollution is almost nil. There is just something relaxing about gazing at the stars. I think everyone needs to take time out of their busy schedules to go star gazing. Don't wait for the next celestial event. Most nights you can even see satellites moving across the sky. There is just something peaceful about laying in the dark and looking up at something so beautiful that makes some of the tension ease out of life. (When I was younger, one of my dreams was to see Earth from space. Who knows, with space travel becoming more readily available to the rich and famous, I might actually be able to accomplish it someday.)
