The moon was spectacular on Friday, but I chose to capture it in photos in the morning when it was positioned over the water.
It was very accommodating to hang around until dawn, as the pinks and oranges of the new day crept over Smithtown Bay. Everyone was up early: The deer, the gulls and the poor crabs who became breakfast.
The whole bay seems to breath in and out with the tides, like one big giant organism. (A huge ameoba?) It all moves together with the air, the moon and the stars and so do we. We just forget about it sometimes, but we are all connected. We just forget about it sometimes, but we are all connected.
That's why it's important once in a while to get off the computer, put the phone down and go outside in the middle of the night to look at the moon. I like to look up at the sky and think about how no matter where you are on the planet, people everywhere are seeing the same canopy of stars and the same moon. As huge as the earth is, we all share that.
