This tee shirt makes me happy, because it's just a basic navy tee, but then it's covered in glitter. It reminds me of a starry sky. And more specifically of that line from the Incubus song where he says "the sky resembles a back-lit canopy with holes punched in it". Which I thought was a super romantic and profound description when I was about 15. And I still think it's a kind of cool line.
As a city girl, I don't get to see the stars as much as I wish I did, especially in the winter when it is too cold to be out at night. I don't particularly like camping, but I do love getting out away from the city lights to see the stars. I took an astronomy class in college, and I've forgotten most of the things we learned. My professor was an old British guy with a terrible stutter who apparently was really into medieval instruments on the side. He was a character for sure, but I wish I remembered more of what he tried to teach me. As is, I can pick out just a few constellations. My favorite is Cassiopeia, because it's just a big W and pretty easy to spot most of the time.
