Astronomy compels the soul to look upwards and leads us from this world to another.

I never thought one of my dates would put Chris to sleep. Well boy was I wrong! Before we get there, let me back up.
I’ve always loved star gazing. I’ll be the first to admit I don’t know a lot about astronomy or the constellations, but I enjoy looking out at the stars and yielding to the feeling of being so small… in a good way.
There was Leah, Rachel, and most famous, Nellie. The interesting thing about Nellie is that it is housed in a rolling roof observatory, allowing access to 180 degrees of sky.
The lights dimmed, the music and lasers began. As the show started to get rolling, I look over to find Chris, eyes closed and fly trap wide open! Not just "resting his eyes" or “centering his mind", but all out “I need a pillow and blanket" sleeping. All I could do is laugh… we’ve got Floyd blasting, laser lights twirling, and Chris managed to take himself a nice nap.
