Meteor Shower

I read that there is a meteor shower tonight. I’ve never seen a meteor shower… I’m not even sure I’ve seen a shooting star. I guess that’s what happens when you live in the city. Here in the city we sing songs with lyrics like this : "can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars..."

Tonight I wish I could take a pick up truck full of friends to a deserted area, preferably up a mountain, around 3am, and have all of us lay in the back covered in a quilt looking up at the sky. Doesn’t that sound perfect?

I think it would feel like this:
