Autumn Reflections – Day 27


On my recent trip to the east coast, my family and I spent several nights at my grandparent’s cottage. Its a small place, tucked away in the countryside, miles away from any city or town. There are no street lights, so when night falls, it gets very dark outside. When I looked up into the heavens, thousands of stars glittered against the dark backdrop of the sky. It was beautiful. Its difficult to describe how I felt, it makes you feel small in comparison to our huge universe.

No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace, as I have seen in one autumnal face.
-John Donne
