  1. The three of us have discovered the dark spot in Geauga County- Observatory Park. I was awestruck by the number of stars. We went once during a full moon and could see a limited number of stars. The reflected light of the sun off the moon obliterated our view. The next time we went on the night of a new moon. For the first time in my life, I saw the Milky Way. I saw more in the dark than in the light. The same is true in my relationship with God- I seek His wisdom when I cannot “see” His will. I am off to read St. John of the Cross.
