Every time when I take a flight alone, I will always feel lost and anxious, especially at night. However, I had a different experience during my latest late night flight. It was a flight heading to my home city Hong Kong. When I was half-awake, I glimpsed a cluster of small light balls floating outside the window. They are brighter and larger than the usual stars. I have no idea if they are stars, lights from the city or some kind of creatures. After few minutes flying, the small light balls flickered and gradually turned into light spots and faded. I felt like they had entered into my heart at the same time when they vanished. At that moment, I seem suddenly understood that life is like the stardust floating in the universe. It is tiny but as great as miracle. It is the light illuminating in the dark. It can always find its place in the cosmos. This feeling of calmness and peacefulness made me fell asleep again. When I woke up, I found myself already on the land of my home city safely.
