“Shoot for the moon.  Even if you miss it you will land among the stars.” –  Les Brown

The stars are the jewels of the night, and perchance surpass anything which day has to show. A companion with whom I was sailing one very windy but bright moonlight night, when the stars were few and faint, thought that a man could get along with them,—though he was considerably reduced in his circumstances,—that they were a kind of bread and cheese that never failed.” — Henry David Thoreau, ‘Night and Moonlight,’ published in Excursions, 1913

Late one night, I was walking home and enjoying the night sky 

filled with stars and an occasional satellite floating by.

Suddenly I felt something shift.

I looked up and saw this incredible, wide wingspan fly over.

Absolute silence, there were no sounds. 

What intense quiet and powerful movement,

not even the air shifted over my head.

Then I saw a huge owl landing on a wooden pole

in front of me and to the left.

British Columbia Stream by Tad McIlwraith

Water flows over and around rocks in a stream, rippling along. Very very slowly over a long period of time, some of those rocks eventually move, giving way to the water, which fills the hollows and continues to flow on its way.

We are both the water and the rocks at various times and situations.
