I watched the dawn arrive this morning,

     Blotting out the stars.

     Sadness at the fragile nature of everything,

     Nothing is permanent.

     I will look for the stars again tonight,

     Feel the connections that they provide.

 

     That sun is so powerful

     it pushes in and takes over.

 

     Clouds hide stars too but nothing can take away

     the power of stars' connecting patterns.

    I want to see the stars out all the time

    Guiding me, finding me, loving me.

You were a guiding star, Dorien.  I miss you.

You see a star during the day. It's just a whole lot closer than the other ones.

I agree. I'll miss Dorien.

It's good that when someone dies, there's someone to tell us it happened. When I used to be on chat, it occurred to me that if I died, no one would have any idea where I went. 

There was a guy on OS, I think a West Coast writer, who passed away of a heart attack, and one of the people I knew there happened to find his obituary, otherwise we'd never have known. I wish I remembered his name. He was on that cover that was frozen for over a year. He was on the cover for over half a year after he died.

Yes, the sun is a star...a pushy one.   Wow,  cyberdeath is amazing.   Some of my friends who died are still online in Second Life and Facebook.  Eery.

I don't know. I don't go onto Facebook.

I heard that the planets are what we know but the stars are more.  I like that.  Science can explain only so much...then I start to drift.  Stars are connected...they are focused energy that can beam right inside you.  It all has something to do with the spirit and with the AIR.
