This is a beautiful sight!
It's pictures like this that make me want to go camp on the top of a mountain in Idaho this summer.
... then reality sets in. Even if I were in the neighborhood next summer, there is no way I'd be outside and awake after about 9 o'clock at night. I have turned into one of those people who wake up early and go to sleep early - a walking (or sleeping) example of old age.
Just recently I was smacked in the head with the realization that I won't live that much longer, maybe 20 more years. I'll miss so many scientific advances - maturing nanotechnology, tiny computers, medical cures for today's dreaded diseases, space and time travel, etc.
I hope the future holds cultural advances as well - an end to religious wars, and end to hate-motivated actions and government-sponsored repression, and end to hunger, a fair chance for anybody on Earth to excel.
On that hopeful note, I wish you all a happy holiday season. I don't practice a traditional Judeo-Christian religion, but we do have a tree, decorations, and presents. After all, we are US citizens :-)
