Falling Through Shooting Stars by Nancy Ann HealyJulia Riley thinks she’s happy. The executive director of Boston’s Fledger Foundation, she and her wife, Carrie, are raising three children, one from Julia’s first marriage…but being content is not the same as being happy.
Katie Brennan is the popular host of a network television morning show. She has two children and a husband who plays major-league baseball. Rumors of her husband’s infidelity are troubling, but she knows how often the media reports innuendo and half-truths instead of facts.
When the two women collaborate on a fundraising program for a new diversity center, they immediately strike up a friendship, one that only grows stronger when Katie discovers her husband has indeed been unfaithful.
As Katie’s marriage fails, she realizes she is intensely attracted to her friend. Surprised by her own feelings, Katie distances herself from Julia, straining their relationship.
For her part, Julia needs time to heal the wounds of her marriage. She’s not sure Katie will accept a romantic relationship, however, a doubt that gives her pause.
Before either woman can move on, they need to find and accept themselves. Love might feel like falling through shooting stars, but sometimes it takes time for the stars to fall.

Our love of music often stems from the brilliance of song lyrics. Since lyrics are so critical to a song, listeners could be left hanging with lines that deal with more abstract matters. In those cases, delving deeper can help draw treasure troves of poetic meaning. The whole song is built around a celestial theme. Many of the lyrics are bizarre enough to be literally out of this world. These outlandish phrases, however, come together later in the song with the chorus.
Answer: A "falling star" or a "shooting star" has nothing at all to do with a star! These amazing streaks of light you can sometimes see in the night sky are caused by tiny bits of dust and rock called meteoroids falling into the Earth's atmosphere and burning up. The short-lived trail of light the burning meteoroid produces is called a meteor. Meteors are commonly called falling stars or shooting stars. If any part of the meteoroid survives burning up and actually hits the Earth, that remaining bit is then called a meteorite. At certain times of year, you are likely to see a great number of meteors in the night sky.
A shooting star is not a star It's not a star at all A shooting star's a meteor That's heading for a fall. A shooting star is not a star Why does it shine so bright?

A shooting star is not a star It's not a star at all a shooting star is not a star A shooting star's a meteor it's not a star at all that's heading for a fall a shooting star's a meteor A shooting star is not a star that's heading for a fall Why does it shine so bright?
Now that she's back in the atmosphere With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey She acts like summer and walks like rain Reminds me that there's a time to change, hey Since the return from her stay on the moon She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey.

Curious Kids is a series for children. Each star is a huge glowing ball of gas, just like the Sun. Stars look much smaller and fainter than our Sun because they are very far away. Despite their name, shooting stars are not stars at all. Read more: Curious Kids: Why do stars twinkle?
