Rainbow Stars

I stumbled across a game on Facebook called Rainbow Stars.

It is described as:

A beautiful, score based, chain reaction game where popping the stars leads to a fantastic eruption of color and sound.

In in you click a spot and a chain reaction stars with stars that touch the area, they get bigger and then fade out.  Each star that touches a large star then expands and fades.  When a star hits another a chime sounds.

The simple game made my mind wander deeper…

Are our lives like the stars?

Some people have short lives that fizzle out and go un-noticed.

Could it be comparable to the end of a line, the person that truly has no one else out there…

Some people have long lives that endure.

Some people have many children and many more grandchildren…

Or perhaps could the trail of stars represent other lives that are touched by one person…  occasionally a star would not touch another star and fades all by itself- alone.

Some stars would encounter stars headed different directions and multiple chains of star pathways would exist.  Could this be compared on how one person’s life can affect others so differently and leave a long legacy.

All in all, it’s just another mindless FB game…  of course in the grand scheme of things… maybe our lives are just as inconsequential.

About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
