There is a star…

…in my website’s logo. You, amongst others, are wondering why.

It's all her fault. Mary Chapin Carpenter's fault, that is.

She wrote the song Ideas are Like Stars, just for me, I'm certain.

...ideas are like stars / They fall from the sky, they run round your head / They litter your sleep as they beckon...
Mary Chapin Carpenter

Her words describe how I feel about ideas: they are everywhere, they are innumerable, they are magical.

As an unrepentant night person, I've always had a fondness for stars. On a clear night—as with creative writing ideas—the more you look, the more you see.

Stars and ideas are endless.
