Addendum to Starry Night

I was listening to the Lion King soundtrack tonight (the broadway musical, not the movie... although I know all of those songs too!) and was struck by the song "He Lives in You" and how it so perfectly adds to my little discussion posted below. In this song and throughout the Lion King the characters often look to the stars where "the great kings of the past look down on us... and watch over us". Although this could easily be overlooked as a cliche message as people often look to the sky for answers, prayers, etc. it really is much more than that. If the stars really do represent the past, no they don't represent the past, they ARE the past, then it is only fitting that our ancestors reside there, along with the famous Lion King (and Grandma Connie) reminder: remember who you are.
