It is time to r e l a x . . .
Close your eyes. Think of a cool summer night. Clear steady sky. New
moon. No lights for miles. The ground glows from the light of the Milky
Way strewn accross the sky like scattered corn meal. You hear the haunting
sound of distant loons echo from all around. The towering oak trees don't
even wiggle a leaf. A calmness so calm that it surrounds you from all sides
and supports you in your journy of the night sky.
