Passion For Astronomy

Passion is defined in the Oxford dictionary as "Strong emotion; outburst of anger (flew into a passion); sexual love; strong enthusiam (for thing, for doing), object arousing this". My passion for the cosmos has driven me to start this blog and try to relate feelings about astronomy I don't even understand. I'm an enigma, an introvert whose not a writer or an intellect but has his own blog, go figure. For an introvert clicking that publish button is like speaking or even dancing in public, its a huge deal, your laying it on the line for everyone to read. But when I'm by myself under the stars nothing else seems to matter, for that moment in time it's my universe, no one elses. When I look at a star cluster, I'm not thinking, how far away it is, how many stars it has or even how old it is, I'm thinking, wow, thank you God for putting it there for me to find. Through the internet I have found many friends with passionate feelings towards all kinds of things and they too have found a way to share how they feel through their blogs and websites. Friends like Rose sharing her time and effort and answering all my questions.
Unique sites such as Aura's Encounters With The Unexplained, or my favorite tv show next to Battlestar Galactica , Jericho, all have their own individual passions and are trying to share a piece of what makes them tic.

Astronomy has always been an interesting topic to me, but time doesn't permit me to read and update myself about the latest findings. Will be back here again next time to get myself updated quickly with brief and nice to read information of yours.

Your post about stars put thing in perspective. Maybe I'm reading too much into this post, but it really spoke to me.
