The Moon

The moon was stunning tonight. Giant and bright, with a yellow cast to it. It felt as though I could reach out and touch it, if I could just get over this ONE hill. It was mesmerizing, calming, gorgeous.

I tried to take a picture, but nothing could capture it. The camera lens did what my eye wouldn’t–it realized the massive distance between it and the subject. All my photos featured one little speck of nothing. Hardly the awe-inspiring globe I was trying to capture.

So I just looked. I guess sometimes there are things that can’t be captured on film, to be shared with those that weren’t there, that need to just be enjoyed in the moment. That can’t be recorded by my basic tools and amateur skills. Hell, these words don’t even do that shining orb justice, though to be fair, I’m not trying to recreate it for you here in the same way as a photograph.

But damn, was the moon stunning tonight.
