“As full and bright as I am, this light is not my own. […] Without her we are lifeless satellites drifting.”
Tool: Reflection

How passive is the moon, really? How alive?
How warm is her celestial body?
Is she second-rate?

Beacon in the night. Protection.
Company. Light.

“I don’t like what the moon is supposed to do.
Confuse me, ovulate me,
spoon-feed me longing. A kind of ancient
date-rape drug.”
Brenda Shaughnessy

“You change shape and turn away,

Brenda Shaughnessy

We all watch the same Moon.

“The moon had been observing the earth close-up longer than anyone. […] But the moon remained silent; it told no stories. All it did was embrace the heavy past with a cool, measured detachment. On the moon there was neither air nor wind. Its vacuum was perfect for preserving memories unscathed. No one could unlock the heart of the moon.”
Haruki Murakami
