IN A NEW LIGHT – Attached to the Moon

(With the moon coming full tonight (1 Aug.), may this reflection move you 
to get outdoors and experience the wonder in a new light. By the way, this early August full moon means the next one will be a blue moon!)

Sun shadows fall heavy on the earth—stark, stretched, hard-edged forms, so common we barely notice their attachment any more.

Moon, though, lays down her strokes gently, subtle shades of black 
on black. Now we feel the attachment more than know it.

The moon is a strange phenomena. Imagine what the odds are for the moon being at the exact distance away from the earth so as to have a full eclipse of the sun when it crosses its path. Supposedly it very odd that the moon also does not rotate to show us its back side which is unusual or even unheard of elsewhere in the solar system. Studying more about Moon anomalies certainly takes one down a rabbit hole towards looking at earth in a completely new and fantastic way.

I didn't know that the side of the moon we don't see is always the same side! I can't imagine how that would work, but I'll take your word for it :-)
