For the writing challenge for Bloganuary, our daily prompt, I’d like to describe how I feel when looking at the stars.
I FEEL IN COMPLETE AWE
My perspective changes when I gaze at the stars.
An immediate sense of peace and calm. Even in the bustle of time and feeling overwhelmed, stress and worry just melts away.
I feel soothed and pacified, while at the same time, the tiniest of details that don’t really seem to matter feel designed with the greatest of care.
Because they are.
I remember the first time I thought about the stars and saw how mesmerizing they were as a child, with my family, as we slept outside on blankets set upon the grass.
Shooting stars are such a delight.
Even now it’s incredible to think about how far away they are.
I can only identify a few.
My favorite star is Betelgeuse, favorite constellation is Orion, favorite planet is Jupiter.
I wish I could photograph stars well. Instead I like find and capture constellations with my phone app to mark certain special occasions.
I don’t get to gaze at them enough. But it doesn’t take long to be reminded of their wonder and beauty upon a simple glance.

This concludes the Bloganuary challenge!
I was unaware of it but was glad I was able to join in mid-way, completing an 11-day streak of the daily word prompts.
It’s been wonderful to challenge my writing skills and meet all of you lovely people.
I hope to see you around in post exchanges and discussions and will look forward to the future for any upcoming challenges we can participate in together as a community.
It’s been fun!
