Full, bright, beautiful moon tonight. Last night, too. She's just gorgeous and perennially guides me out of my head and tides me in to the present.
(Fun fact: it is the first full moon on Halloween visible across all U.S. timezones since 1944.)
I purchased the Wildsam Field Guide to the Moon in the early days of the pandemic and relished in this love letter to the moon and cosmos.
I loved too that it was inclusive of all perspectives and gave space to both the wonder and superfluousness of space exploration when compared to the plights of marginalized [Black] people here on Earth. Both of these passages are so equally human in their despair and hope.
