It was a dark night of October, and only the starry sky was the proof of our existence.
-Granny, what's the name of those three stars in a row? (The girl pointed excitedly at the sky)
-Oh.. That's the Orion's Belt.
-Orion's Belt, the girl murmured under her breath.
-Orion's Belt, the girl murmured under her breath. Then, how about that one? It's so bright..
-Sirius.. I like this one. Let's go there.
-Sirius.. I like this one. Let's go there. -Of course
-But, it seems so far, how long will it take us to get there?
-But, it seems so far, how long will it take us to get there? -Well.. about 8,6 light years.
-Hmm, a light year? Is it more than a simple year?
-Hmm, a light year? Is it more than a simple year? -Much more, but you can also get there in one second.
-How is that possible?
-Let me teach you. Close your eyes and imagine that you are there. Do you see?
-Granny.. How can I see anything if I closed my eyes? Don't joke with me!
-But I'm serious. In the human world there are a lot of different limitations, and only your imagination is unbounded.
It's the power given to humans that in hard times will be their consolation and not only. How do you think most engineers at their time could invent something?
-Then.. Does it mean, this 'imagination' can get mommy and daddy back?
(Grandma smiled sadly) -They were always with you.
-No! Don't say like those teachers that they are in my heart It's not true!
-You're right.. Of course it's not true, because they are not only in your heart, but also in your eyes, smile, walking...
-You say again something I don't understand. Me is only me!
-But, weren't you always saying that you have the mother's eyes and father's smile..? -Yes, but I didn't mean..
-It doesn't matter.. They are a part of you as well as you are a part of them, and this can't be changed by time, death, or somebody else.
We all are part of something greater, so no matter how far someone is, he is no further than the distance of your hand that you can reach at any time.
(The girl closed her eyes)
(The girl closed her eyes) -Granny, you know what? I think I can see Sirius now..
