Letting Life Lead

Yeah Write #59: Into the Light ( #amwriting #microstory )

    I love the sense of movement in this, flying back and forth across the cosmos.

      Thanks bunches! This was a hard one. I think I got it in my head that I wanted to use the words star stuff and nebula. Hah. That kind of gets in my way sometimes.
