Shooting Stars

I look up at the stars when I walk at night ....
The other day, I sent my friend a pic of a shooting star, and he said it was probably computer generated. I was sad, that something so beautiful wasn't real. 
Tonight, when I looked up, I wished I'd see a shooting star.
Then I wondered, if the entire sky had just shooting stars, wouldn't it be awesome ? But the image that came to my mind was more chaos than awe inspiring ...
Life is like that, we remember the exciting moments in such detail, but we seldom realize that those moments are special only because our rest of the life is .... well, monotonous or rather, less eventful. How would you like it if EVERYTHING in our life is changing ALWAYS ??
It's the stars that patiently stay in the same position everyday that add beauty to shooting stars. It's the monotonous parts of our lives that give special colour to the moments in them :)

I look up at the stars when I walk at night, and I'm glad they're always there, always the same :)
