ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY ~ STAR GAZING

Once upon a time we lived near a hill that gave us a wonderful view of the night sky.  We had only to walk out the door and a few steps then up the hillside.  With our telescope we could spend hours searching the night sky for our favorite constellations.  The most brilliant stars would take our breath away. Even in the colder winter months we were drawn to that hillside.

Oh the glow on the face and the book and the head of the 'scope is so well done. It really adds that zing and zest to bring the work alive. Thanks for that lesson!
