An Eskimo Legend
Perhaps they are not stars, but rather the openings
to the place where peaceful spirits dwell, where our loved ones
can look down and shine their light upon us, letting us know they
are home safe.
dragonflies are born, they are born underwater. When they are old
enough, they swim to the surface, spread their wings and fly.
Two newly born dragonflies were talking about what
it was like above the water. They both agreed that whoever went
up first would come back down to tell the other what it was like.
Later that month, one dragonfly grew up, swam to the
top, grew its wings and flew. It was a magnificent place to be.
The dragonfly looked down and saw its friend. When it tried to fly
down to talk to its friend, it couldn't fly through the water. It
tried and tried to reach its friend but it was unable to because
it had moved on to a better place.
