Night Sky

We saw "Beasts of the Southern Wild" at the Tara Cinema. It is a different and fascinating film. In a strange way, it reminded me of "The Tree of Life" which I watched three or four times (at the Tara Cinema). Every time, I cried for 10-15 minutes over a sequence of shots from Galaxies and creation and child birth all combined together. I like the sky, specially the night sky when it is filled with stars. In Iran, I slept under the night sky (of Damavand near Tehran) once and I watched the sky for a couple of hours and cried every now and then. It was a fascinating night. I can't describe it. Tonight when we came out of the theater, around 9 p.m, the evening sky was mesmerizing. I took some pictures. But seeing it first-hand, the amazing combination of colors, was different. Yesterday, I had a few very difficult hours in the afternoon. I changed a plan to hang out with a dear friend (for complicated reasons that I do not fully understand yet), and suddenly, a black hole appeared in front of me. The emptiness that appeared before me was frightening.
