The Art of Leisure: Stargazing

Engaging in sweet activities that require little more than indulging the the pleasure of doing sweet nothings are a welcome rest from a busy day and are good for the soul.

A luxurious activity worth taking time to engage in happens at night. Up in the dark sky, where it is darkest, away from the mass of city lights, is a splendor for the eyes, the dazzling constellations that have captivated people since the dawn of time.
