  1. Fun post Amy. I remember the first time I really understood I was seeing the Milky Way – lying on the ground in Yosemite on a summer night. I’d never seen such a magnificent display of stars. It was literally one of those life-changing moments that still fills me with wonder and awe all these many years later.
