There may be something to this wishing on a star thing.
I saw a shooting star tonight!
This is notable because I have two siblings who seem to see them fairly regularly, and I’ve rarely seen them outside of a meteor shower.
You know, I was not prepared with a wish?
Rather, I was not prepared to wish on the shooting star.
Since intentions are powerful, I can’t help thinking that if you were determined enough in your wish to remember it in the instant you see a star, you’re bound to have it come about. That’s no small level of intention.
