Irish author, Oscar Wilde, graced us with the quote "We are all of us in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars", meaning life is all about perception. One can still appreciate the beauty in life even when in an unideal situation.
"Though my soul may sit in darkness, it will rise in perfect light. I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night" Sarah Williams-The Old Astronomer. My father loved the stars. He asked me to sing "Stardust" at his funeral.
