Stars in the Sky

Sherlock Holmes and Watson were on a camping trip. They were lying in bed, looking up at the sky. Holmes said, “Watson, what do you see?”

“Well, I see thousands of stars.”

“And what does that mean to you?”

“I suppose, Holmes, it means that of all the planets and suns and moons in the universe, that we are truly the one most  blessed with the reason to deduce theorems to make our way in this world of criminal enterprises and blind greed. It means that we are truly small in the eyes of God but struggle each day to be worthy of the senses and spirit we have been blessed with. And, I suppose, at the very least, in the  meteorological sense, it means that it is most likely that we will have another nice day tomorrow. What does it mean to you, Holmes?”

“To me, Watson, it means someone has stolen our tent.”
