Can You Hear How Many Stars Are Out Tonight

Something I’m going to miss when I go home is tilting my head up to look at the stars each night when I brush my teeth. I think in a way it feels like my most quiet, independent moment. This one particular night, I decided to record it. The stars were so bright, that I felt like I’d be able to see them clearly again when re-listening to this audio. The crickets always seem to chirp louder when the stars are bright.

I’m thinking that maybe I’m gonna start brushing my teeth on our back porch once I get back home.
