I have never been closer to the moon than I was last night. My body and mind were transfixed by the gravitational pull of the celestial body that may very well have once been a part of our blue earth. Imagine what the tides must have been like. I wish I could have seen them. Prowlers of the city were unaware of the invisible force and went about their business talking a little louder, drinking a little harder, and acting a little wilder, but those of us who are in touch know when there is a vibe in the air and recognize the source from which it stems. Every day we are moving further and further away from the moon and sun but at the same time we are standing still.
