"Despite advances we have made in our modernity,
I still look into the stars at night and see eternity."
                                                        ---Rose Moore

It's a bracing feeling when at last I see the spring trees sprout new leaves again. But I've been thinking...

In the deepness of this tree-filled valley, the current bareness of the trees reveals a lot of sky I will not see when the leaves return.

Soon I'll be enclosed in the lushness and cool quiet of the greenery, and I will have to travel to the upper lands above my valley to look into the stars at night.
Though there are countless compensations, I will miss my unencumbered starlight.
