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'.
