we have the biggest sky

Spreading from horizon to horizon, unhindered by the fog of city lights,
it brightens and blankets us, bewilders us, curls its toes into our warm edges.
It's no wonder we reach up and think we can gather the stars in our hands.

This comment though guys, this comment!

(Seriously though, all the lovely messages people are leaving, I’m coming down with a case of the warmfuzzies.)

Reblogging primarily to point out how top-notch this lady is. (I am already hoarding more than my fair share of her lovely art and craftsmanship.

There are things you cannot pick up:
pennies, sticks, leaves, yourself.
They are too heavy.
If you try, you will fall and not stand again.
