Not even Perseus could put a hold on yesterday’s show of meteors.
Mere rocks lose their way in the darkness, pulling into the atmosphere of Earth, leaving tails of fire behind their trails, but are meteors mere? Some don’t call them falling stars — they say, “They’re really not stars at all,” but then, some people don’t call sea stars by the name starfish, and yet the word is still a word, because habits die hard. Why?
It’s because we see what we see. Falling stars are stars like dreamers dream. Perseus never stops his battling Medusa, and Draco never fossilizes with the rest of the Dragon Age. It’s because we all want to see the immortal heroes. As well, wishes continue to come true because falling stars make them true. No one can change the magic, the magnificent.
In fact, dare anyone try and take away what the imagination sees, they’ll find themselves learning, that only the day Perseus lays down his sword and quits the fighting, will stars be a mere mathematical line of lights and nothing more.
The meteor shower yesterday had many kinds of falling stars. Each one is like a message in a bottle from God to you: your wish is linked to a falling star, and in turn, links to the ether endlessly, making your wish become a reality in the future. Each star has a different tone.

“Whither shall I go from thy Spirit?
Or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there:
If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, thou art there.
If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Even there shall thy hand lead me,
And thy right hand shall hold me.
If I say, Surely the darkness shall overwhelm me,
And the light about me shall be night;
Even the darkness hideth not from thee,
But the night shineth as the day:
The darkness and the light are both alike to thee.”
Psalm 139:7-12 (ASV)
