When You Wish Up In The Stars…

outer space postcardFor the first time in an eternity, Modern Philosophers, I am saddened by the fact that it’s Friday.  This means my most excellent vacation will soon be coming to an end.

It doesn’t mean, however, that I have to sit around and dwell on that fact.  I spent the morning on a Nature Walk deep in the forests of Coven Island.

I was able to get very close to a herd of Chocolate Moose…so close that my mouth watered and I fantasized about having a spoon and a big container of whipped cream.  A friendly Unicorn allowed me to pet it, and I came across a small swarm of extremely rare Doodle Bugs on the trunk of a mighty Snicklefritz Tree.  Quite an adventure!

Of course, I jumped at the opportunity to journey into space.  Commander Th’yo Zlaf-oji gave me access to his personal observation deck, and suggested I make myself at home and enjoy the view as the crew took the mighty vessel for a spin across the Milk Way.

I know I am always writing about how Magical Maine is, and you must be sick of hearing me prattle on about it by now, Modern Philosophers, but afternoons like this make me want to write a 5,000 word essay on why I love Maine.

Don’t those stars look exactly like a heart?  I decided it was a sign from the Fates that I should take the opportunity to wish upon those stars.

What else would I wish for upon looking at that particular grouping of heavenly bodies?  My wishes focused on The Girl Who Is The Center Of My Heart’s Universe.

I can’t reveal exactly what I wished up in the stars because then it won’t come true, but I’m sure you have some idea.  I can tell you that more than anything, I wanted her fingers interlocked with mine and her head resting on my shoulder as we shared that breathtaking view together.

Time does pass much quicker in space.  After what only seemed like half an hour, the Commander was informing me that we were almost back to Earth.  He asked if I wanted to return to Coven Island via a shuttle or by alternate means.

Even though my heart was 1,400 miles away with The Girl Who Makes Me Feel Weightless, I was able to focus my thoughts long enough to fly myself back to Coven Island.

I think I’m finally finding the balance between loving, longing, and keeping my broom up in the air long enough to make sure I don’t get hurt.

What an amazing day.  I wish this vacation never had to end!
