“A thousand stars in the sky make me realize,
That you are the one that I adore.”
-Song by Kathy Young
Those were the words in my mind as I approached the shore of Dream Lake in pitch blackness at nearly 11,000 feet of elevation in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. During that long summer after 8th grade, I had first danced to this song with a little wisp of a girl who sat in front of me that school year. In my high school years, those words would get me out onto the dance floor with her at the teen dances. This is still the favorite dating era song of me and my 8th grade sweetheart, Kathy Spaeth (now Backus). It will still get me out onto the dance floor with her every time it is played!

Every year I would go out on an out of state hunt with about 8-15 family members. After everyone goes into there tent after hours of talking during night time with a good campfire going. I would still be out by myself, not worried about forest fire cause half the time we would have snow. When I look up, there are so many more stars at midnight than the first hour of night. One year, I grabbed someone nice leica BRF (wish I could keep 'em!) and looked up around midnight. It was absolutely amazing, literally it was exponentailly times more stars with a binocular than the bare naked eyes.
The irony here is I ended up sleeping in on these hunts while everyone were long gone before the sun even came up!
I didn't know you were so poetic and romantic, that's good specially toward the little lady the deserves it the most. God bless her heart!
"About you loving her tomorrow more than you loved her back then" is something that I wished every man would experience, simply because I have been fortunate enough to be in the same boat. It's just the truth!!!
By the way, beautiful shot!
Thanks for sharing!
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!! ---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!
