Here in the middle of the moon's cycle
, our nights are filled with bright blue light. Some evenings are so bright that large trees send 11pm shadows
across the street and if you arch your head toward the sky, you can watch the red lights of airplanes dart between pale clouds above you.
I know we should all take such things for granted, but I really enjoy walking outside when the moon spotlights the neighborhood. To my perspective it is like an inverted eclipse- these small nights of bright light and cool shadows.
Stop and watch the moon's glare sparkling off the chrome of a large truck. Notice how night air mixed with blue light makes everything almost sepia. Pretend it matters. What the hell, it's free.
