Raven reminder, and astrogasm

It's all right, we've all been busy and/or lazy, but I'll get off my rear and remind you: please send in your Raven lines! I've only gotten a couple so far. They're males with nice voices, so I'm not complaining, but the poem's sounding pretty incomplete.

We were out of town for a few days, staying at a cabin of my husband's coworker, out in central Washington. Aside from pines and horses and snow-dusted mountains, I saw, to my delight, stars. I do love living beneath the clouds in the city lights here, but I miss stars. I went outside into the pitch black outside the cabin Tuesday night, and stood groping and inching forward, blinking like a blind thing. A glare lay over my eyes, somehow red and green at the same time; I began to fear my night vision was gone for good after all this city living. But lo! It cleared. And there they were. The stars. Thousands of them.

And the Milky Way! I hadn't seen it for years. Absolutely gorgeous. I leaned back on the hood of the car like a drunken teenager and just gazed. Ahhh.

So. Ahem. Please record your lines. Thanks! Enjoy your weekend.
