The sky makes me feel so small. Especially here, where it seems to stretch on forever, uninterrupted by volcanic ranges. When I was a kid, I used to try to imagine the vastness of space. No beginning, no end. It would make me dizzy and a little frightened, like standing on the precipice of a cliff and peering over the edge. Watching the stars rotate in the sky has the same affect on me. I kind of like it.
