As a child, the moon was my best friend … always shared my secrets, my joy, and my sadness with her – sitting on the windowsill up on the second floor in my grandparent’s house.
As Carl Sandburg said, the moon is a friend to the lonely … so true. I was very lonely as a child and up in early teens.
On such a distance and still she is always so very close to me.
“The moon is a friend for the lonesome to talk to.”
It still happens that I talk to the moon… only a few days since I talked to the moon about the anxiety I have over COVID-19.
“Life is too short to not have fun;
we are only here for a short time compared to
the sun and the moon and all that.”
When I lived in Belfast my bedroom was on the top floor and the ceiling had Velux windows … and when it was full moon …. the moonlight filled my bed and I slept so deep and well.
“The moon fascinates us in her simplicity.”
Nearly all the time I travel … I will enjoy the full moon at my destination. I dare to say 80% of all the places I visit around the world I enjoyed in the moonlight. Maybe she follows my path???? I hope so!!!
“If you strive for the moon,
maybe you’ll get over the fence.”
My personal opinion is that we should leave the moon alone … and sort out the mess we have created here down on the earth before we start to destroy her too. All that money we can spend on those more needed, without a land and a home, fresh water, medical care, freedom, and food. Sorry, NASA!!!!!!
“Drag me to the moon, to catch a star and seize its brilliance
as I’m swept up in amorphous dust.”
“With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon
could not be happy?”
Oscar, my Canon Powershot SX50HD … likes to talk to the moon too.
“The moon lives in the lining of your skin.”
“Always remember we are under the same sky,
looking at the same moon.”
My mother always said that I’m filled with moonlight! I really love the thought of that.
