I absolutely love looking up at the stars. I could do it all night.

I've just been watching 'Stargazing Live' on BBC 2. A superb show.

As much as I like to know what I'm looking at in the night sky, there's a part of me that doesn't want to know.

I like the overwhelming sense of awe I get when I look up. It gives me a reality check. My problems seem so unbelievably small and insignificant. 

When I look up I'm not labelling the stars and constellations. I'm just looking at them. 

If I were to learn their labels will I lose that sense of awe I currently get?

Unknowing is bliss.

I don't want 'that star' to become 'just that star'.
