A Star to Follow

Lines from Nuovo Cinema Paradiso - Between Alfredo and Toto , as they walk by the sea -

Alfredo : You haven't seen her?
Toto : No. And no one knows where she is.
Alfredo : Probably that's how it was meant to be.We, each of us, have a star to follow.

Perhaps one of the most easy-to-say and most-difficult-to-do things in life is finding out your life's star,isnt it,that elusive little star. For some,the star is a guiding light,a beacon,a compass used to help navigate to your destination- could be a friend,a parent, a sibling,a book even- helping you on your way to your life's aim or your heart's desire. For others, reaching the star itself is the ultimate aim - the star could be a degree in a dream university, a dream job , or the love of your life. Following it becomes paramount to your existence.

Made me wonder what my star excatly is. Presently foggy,but hopefully should see with better clarity of vision the more i focus my lenses. How i wonder what you are!
