Swing Up to the Moon…

You see that little white round thing in the picture? That’s the moon. From our perspective, it’s not very significant when seen in a picture like this (couldn’t get it to appear any bigger on my camera phone…). But when you go outside and look up, it’s stunning. Unless you’ve just gotten used to it. Or unless you’ve forgotten to look up. But I hope you haven’t… There’s a big universe out there. I bet if we could lasso the moon, like George and Mary talked about in “It’s A Wonderful Life,” we wouldn’t bring it down to our level, but we’d swing up to its level instead. From there, we could look down — and see another faraway object: Earth. And we’d wonder why we ever worried about whatever it was that stole some of our precious time… ; )
