Little children familiar with Jiminy Cricket of Disney fame can usually remember the words to “When You Wish Upon a Star” – the words and melody still sing in my memory. Nursery verses of yore include “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”…too special to forget and likely taught to our children and grandchildren.
As the seasons change, so does the night sky. Sometimes we crane our necks to find a constellation that appears to have moved, or a bright star that is not exactly where it was last time we looked. I look for a particular light out there often, before my bedtime. I call it “Tony’s star”.
On this evening of the Solstice I’m sure I’ll see it, dimmer but ever twinkling. At this Yuletide season I can still touch that special someone in my heart by taking a Night Flight.
