One moon

I'm having one of those nights where I'm painfully aware that many of the people I love are scattered all over the planet.

One moon, right? That's what they told us at summer camp.

One moon that happens to be just a tiny red sliver right now.

One moon over Alabama. One enormous moon hanging over Chicago, and New York, and Austin, and Ecuador. Louisville, Shanghai, and Santa Fe. Many moons over California. One over Jonathan and Sarah's moving van that I helped pack last night, over Roger and his family making their way, like the moving van, to Maine. One creeping slowly across the southern states, watching my friends make words sing.
