I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of stars. I grew up reading stories and watching movies of heroes going on epic quests and the stars always seemed to play an important part. Namely in Disney’s Hercules which is perhaps my favorite Disney Movie— probably because I’m a huge mythology nerd, not to mention there’s a flying horse who was literally made out of a cloud from Olympus (even if you don’t like the movie you’ve got to admit that’s super cool). In Hercules, the stars tell stories, they immortalize heroes in the sky forever. And although I don’t necessarily want to see myself in the stars like Hercules does, that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t very much like to see the stars as they are.
