The moon! La luna!

20140310-211721.jpg

The setting: clear sky, tree lined streets, old homes, bikes, kids, parks, parents, hungover 20 something’s, birds singing, maybe a pleasant song stuck in your head

The exclamation: a young girl, 3 or 4 is standing on her front porch with who you assume is her mom, she’s all bundled up as any 3 or 4 year old should be on a March day in British Columbia, she looks forward, and with all the joy she can muster, she throws her hands up and out towards the blue sky, day time moon, “the moon, la luna!” she exclaims

The beauty: the moon is so magnificent so wonderful that it should be embraced and not only that but exclaimed about, one language isn’t enough

Capture that wonder.

Bottle that wonder and dab some on your wrists, your neck, before you step out next.

Soak in that wonder so nothing but admiration pours from your pores

The moon! La luna!

One thought on “The moon! La luna!

  1. Yesterday the moon was out when the sun was. I was thinking back to when I was a child and I’d be all like, “what?! The moon?!” and my parents/adult that I was with would just be like, “Yeah that’s the moon. It sometimes is out in the day time..”. I really was thinking about this yesterday, about how truly beautiful and crazy and massive the moon is and how we don’t really give it much thought beyond, “oh yeah, the moon”. This post read my mind and explained my own thoughts to me better than I could. Thanks for writing it. Loving the new elements too, keep up the good work!
