Something that guides, silences, awes and inspires me every day is THE MOON.
Whether I can see it or not, I think about her. I say her because I often imagine the moon as a benevolent motherly goddess creature who watches without judging.
My favorite moon moments are when the sun and moon are up at the same time at sunrise in the summer and they are across from each other on the horizon in the morning. It makes me feel like maybe I AM the center of the universe, if only for a second.
I also love when the moon hangs low on the horizon in the evening and the optical illusion caused by the curve of the Earth makes it look huge in the sky. Usually I'm driving along thinking... what is that bright light over the crest of that hill? And then I get to the top and realize WOW IT'S THE MOON AND IT'S TAKING OVER THE SKY.
Tonight, even though it is raining and I don't see the moon, I know it is there and for that I am grateful.
