Agreed -- the moon is underrated. Thanks. dl

Heidi,
I had saved this article to read after we met in Paris and we heard these comments mentioned here; how goes your moon these days? I hope well, and perhaps we muse upon that same moon together from our separate seats but both bask in its glow and dream a common dream: of old, wonderful things, like the moon, and how they never grow old when we see them again after some time apart- and how every time we look, we wonder once again how we could ever have gone so long without them always in our eyes. Full or simply a small slice, may the moon today be a birthday cake with fireworks, burning for you like a Bastille Day celebration, the night revealing how much friends make the moon worth looking towards together, whether champagne or Paris, or a vast space, perfume or fog, a blanket or a bed, together.
