Morning Stars

On my morning swim these days the most interesting constellation I see is Orion.  The top two stars are the hunter's shoulder joints, bottom two are his knees, and the bright three in the middle are his belt.  It's an appropriate collection of stars to see, considering my shoulder and knee pain and expanding waistline.  Perhaps I need to have a conversation with this morning hunter as I float on my back in the morning darkness.  I'll take guidance from whereever it might come.

This morning I saw my first shooting star of the season!  Life is good.
