OMG Falling Stars! Reduxby Bridget Stuart
Meteor shower update:
WOW. Just back from the cliffs by the ocean--well past midnight, and so all you civilized people are in bed, no one I can call to gasp over it --I never saw so many falling stars as I did tonight. Astonishing green and yellow streaks across the sky, like fireworks with a mission.
The wonder and dark romance of my evening was somewhat marred at first, when high schoolers picked a spot near me to hang out, and my Across the Universe-type contemplation was disturbed by a lot of gabbing in which 'fuck' and 'tattoo' were the key words. I moved away from them and got too close to the nice couple who chanted something in an exotic language (I can tell you it wasn't French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Nahuatl or Maya) each time they saw a star fall.
But these folk soon tired of their vigil and left me to it.
Don't let anything stop you, everyone--tomorrow night is supposed to be almost as good as tonight was. GO!
