Nice stars uh? And most, will look at my photograph and "buy" that these are actual stars. They are not. Some digital dark room magic going on here. But, it looks cool - and maybe you believe it. Lots of art is enhanced or photo- shopped or whatever and we still "choose" to believe it because it is pleasing to our eye. Key words here; "we choose to believe it". OCD gives me false messages or obsessions almost daily - and some actually get though to my belief system. Then, I have to self talk myself down with facts. We do have choice you know. It's an art with OCD recovery to practice not buying into a fear or obsession. And, not choosing to believe it. OCD always distorts reality. I would go as far as saying -it always lies to us. I have to catch myself all the time and choose to not go along with the distortion. Not easy - but easier with practice. When I look up at the night sky I'm seeing star light from millions, billions, trillions of years ago - the actual star may not even be there. But the light is real. I choose to believe in the light. We do have choice to believe or not - practice it. I will too. JC <3 ... See MoreSee Less
