My Turn – August 1

About seven months of living here and I found one of the things I appreciate most about moving here from a big city; the sky at night.

Don't get me wrong, I love the sight and bright lights of the San Francisco Bay Bridge and the skyline, but I never really get to see the stars with all those lights.

No neon bright signs for $1 Chinese food (and never trust such a place because I got food poisoning), no flickering street lights that signaled curfew as a kid, just the open sky here.

No matter how long or bad a day is, I know those stars will be waiting for me when I get home; They're so inspiring.

They make me want to build a roof similar to the characters of Third Rock From the Sun and just lay out every night under them. My roommates and I would climb up there to discuss this thing we call life.

I always say the possibilities of my future and my dreams are what keep me going every day. The stars are also a reminder of that, for every day they represent my limit.

I'll keep reaching for them and chasing my dreams, and I have New Mexico to thank for that.
