An extended stay in Marfa, Texas made me realize that I had up to that point never really seen a real night sky full of stars. I mean really full – sprinkled – with stars. As it is so dark in the desert I could now fully understand how full the Universe is. Every clear night I sat beneath the stars, and I would sense that the sky was like a living thing, breathing with stars, embracing us, the Earth.
