Somewhere, an arch, portal to the stars, on one night of the year, connects heaven and earth.

Jillian grew up with this legend. As a child, she dreamed of riding the stars like ponies. Now, as a highly trained musician, she nurtures a different dream.

Years of research led her to Utah for the night of the Summer Solstice.

She steps into the arching doorway and lifts her light-filled baton. On her downbeat, the stars burst into song, and Earth at last hears the Music of the Spheres. Plato’s Musica Universalis is now Jillian’s lifework.

Let the star-bright concerts begin!

There are many kinds of doors, but a portal to the stars is something special! From the first sentence to the last, we were enthralled. Like some of the commentators, we could almost hear the music. Great writing!

Wonderful Julie, love the descriptions and the whole concept of the story. If you listen very carefully you could even hear the music in your words. Very nicely done.

Julie, I love how you bring visuals and audio together to create a full sensation. I can hear the sounds streaming through the archway and out into the cosmos. Nicely done.

Wow Julie, do you know what I can feel – hear? The music in your heart. You can not write what you have, without it beating within!

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
