I’ll share a secret with you.
My campus is in south London but I think the stars have extra wishing powers because they are strong enough to shine through the city lights.
We always pass a park and the sky is open and bright. I always pause a moment to seek out Orion and when I find him instantly my problems fade because I know somewhere the same stars are shining on my mom.
I stop and close my eyes and pour all my love and hopes and dreams into those stars and send them her way.
