I went out to my deck tonight and looked at the moon, and reminisced to when I looked at the same moon rising over Lake Michigan just yesterday. The same moon. It’s hard to believe.
What makes the moon so much different viewed from a spot on earth three hundred-forty miles away from my home? Yesterday I saw the moon rising over a body of water that reflected tiny pinpoints of light. Tonight it illuminates my back yard. Yesterday the moon shone over a vast area as far as the eye can see. Tonight it peeks between treetops and the tops of houses. Yesterday the moon was the center of the universe. Tonight it was merely a reminder of the universe.
The same moon from a different place on earth. Why do I feel more in sync with the universe when I see the moon rising over the water? Why do I simply wish for other things when I see the moon rise over the rooftops? Sunrises don’t touch me as much. The moon, that’s something completely different.
The moon over Lake Michigan makes my mind soar. It makes me wish for things I know aren’t practical. It makes me part of something I can’t explain. Potential. A Divine plan.
I’m tucked into my comfort zone once again and the moon is quite a sight. But yesterday, over the great lake, it was a beacon of possibility.
It must have been moonglow, way up in the blue
It must have been moonglow, that led me straight to you

There’s a weird moon out there. I’ve been out of sorts physically and mentally for over a week now and want to blame it on lunar activity.
The Christmas and New Year holiday season is over now, which could have something to do with my lowly state. After a surge of activity one could naturally feel depleted. I’m in a state of zombie; despite the things I want and have to do I can’t find my get-up-and-go.
Could be I need a vacation from the day job. I haven’t had a real vacation in quite some time; maybe I need to vacate public service for a while.
I can’t even find the energy to figure out why I’m so restless, so I’m back to the moon again. It’s weird, the moon. I hope it starts waning soon.
What’s the weird moon doing to you these days?
