The Perseids



Every year, on August 12th, we know we'll be away, far from the city in a dark place where we can watch the Perseids, the meteor showers that graced our wedding ten years ago and celebrates for us our anniversary ever since.
Last year in Yellowstone, we drove out to a dark field, lay on our backs on the hood of the car and watched an incredible show of stars streak across the sparkling sky. This year we'll be way Northeast, probably in Cape Breton, hopefully on the ocean, where it will be very dark and we can disappear in the mammoth night sky, we can be small, we can remember some old friends up there.
