“Three things cannot be long hidden:— Buddha
the sun, the moon, and the truth.”
“I think we’re going to the moon— Neil Armstrong
because it’s in the nature
of the human being to face challenges.
It’s by the nature
of [our] deep inner soul…
we’re required to do these things
just as salmon swim upstream.”
“From now on we live in a world— Jim Lovell
where [someone] has walked
on the Moon.
It’s not a miracle;
we just decided to go.”
Today’s MotD celebrates the moon and all it does for us. It’s one of our timekeepers. In some cultures, it’s the main timekeeper. Its gravitational pull ebbs and flows the waters on our planet, including the water within our bodies. It reflects the sun’s light. When full, it acts as a guiding light at night. It’s presence helps stabilize our planet’s wobble and moderates our climate. So all in all, the moon is a gift to Earth that keeps on giving.
We are encouraged to go outside on the night of a full moon to bask in the sunlight’s glow reflecting off the moon’s surface. It’s the closest we can get to seeing the sun’s light without the need for eye protection, like we would if we were to look directly at the sun. While we at it, we may want to give thanks to her for her generous service to us. For without her, we would be lost.
