Fort mountain state park, one of the most scenic place in Chattahoochee national forest in Georgia. It is always thrilling to drive up north on the serpentine mountain roads at dark. In search of light and silence. The night on the scenic highway was unlike any other night. I was standing on the edge of the road, enjoying the spectacular view of our Galaxy. Milky way had spread from the top of the sky, trees shuddering in the crisp mountain winds, and the sky blazing with billions of stars. I had a sort of visual illusion that everything was spinning around me. As if I lost gravity. I felt the vastness of the universe and it occurred to me that heaven is a place on Earth.
