A nihilist dreamer

I’m a nihilist dreamer, One who finds happiness and serenity in gazing at the stars. Letting my anxieties drift away,  Into the constellations, And merging with the void, I breathe in the cool night air, And let my mind drift away.   The city lights dim the array of stars, But the brightest ones let their light beam through, Lighting up the sky with incomplete constellations, And allowing the imagination of the stargazer to fill in the blanks.   By Sophie Dufresne

There is a Dome Around the Earth

Hello again, my friends. I have returned to you with yet another truth. This time, we will be looking at the wonder that is nature; specifically, the sky above us. Such a beautiful thing indeed. It changes from a shade of blue in the morning, to a reddish-orange at dusk, to a dark, starry void at night, and back to orange at dawn. It can be covered in grey clouds, blotting out the sun, but most of the time it is as clear as can be, so much too hat…

We probably do not incorporate any form of love language into everyday life, right? Well, what if I told you that you probably are, in fact, using a type of love language practically every day?
