I always liked the definition HEAVENLY BODIES applied to stars, because it makes it sound like there is a close bound between us and them: they’re not just trembling lights in the outer space: they are bodies, just like us. Warm and Alive. They just happen to be very far away. Yet they’re constantly present: one of the few things you can see from anywhere in the world, just looking up: they are there, they’ve always been and they will be after us. It’s like drawing a line to infinity. Simple like drawing a star, something we learn to do since childhood: Five lines: left to right, diagonal right to bottom left, diagonal right up, diagonal right down, and diagonal left up.
