Lying in the yard this morning before dawn watching them with my cousin, the light streams seemed so close, "so personal," Candace said. And the light is unbelievably brilliant. Most of the blazing particles we see in this meteor shower are as small as a grain of sand, but their light is of a quality that is unlike anything I have ever seen.
Today, when Corey would have turned the big Three-0, I think of those streams of light as Corey's birthday candles. and like the blazes we see in the Perseid meteor shower, Corey's light shines on, so brilliantly, not to be forgotten.
