With the recent discovery of seven Earth-sized planets around a star, I've been thinking a lot about space. My current work in progress, an adult high fantasy series, was inspired by walks at night with my dog, when I'd gaze at the stars. I started thinking about how different people can view the same image in different ways...
Stars are ancient. Light from the nearest star, our sun, is already several minutes old when it strikes us, and most of the other stars are years or even centuries old. If a star supernovas tomorrow, we might not know for a millennium. Yet, who really thinks about that when looking up? Do you look up and see what's there, or do you see an impression of something different? Do you dream of things to come, or do you simply pause, wondering what's going on far away...

I can relate by how the poem views the stars and his dreams. At night, I always look up and imagine my life in a different point of view. I get to view my life in a different way and think that I am a completely different person. I also tend to see my ahead and plan my future. Whenever I am looking far ahead, I get to touch into my deep insights and get a look on a whole different perspective.

I'm very similar- funny how just looking up can alter how we see things.
