"After everyone went off to their tents nestled in the trees, Patches and I talked for a while as we watched the sun sink behind a black silhouette of mountains set in front of a flaming sky that slowly dimmed to darkness.

Venus and Jupiter were the first to pierce the fresh pallet of dark blue, and moments later the sky became silver with stars.

I spotted the constellations - Leo and Virgo - which happened to be mine and Patches's astrological signs - a magical way to end the day."
