I Looked Up (a 100 word observation)

Tonight I looked into the night sky and saw infinity.  I saw the moment when I was born, and the time my parents fell in love.  I gazed upon the day Newton discovered how the stars dance.  I saw a time when this planet was born out of the fiery refuse spiraling around a young star.  I looked up and saw a continuum of what has been in time, and I wondered if my descendants will look up into that night sky and see light from a star that was created as I looked up at the stars and wondered.
