This Island Earth

Has any one else seen the moon the last few days?

Last night she was beautiful. Full and glowing in her lunar magic against that midnight-blue sky. Clouds, thick and yet pulled thin like raw cotton when it is being cleaned by hand, floated by. They were obscuring our few of her before perfectly framing her face, just for a moment.

What is it about her that has captured our imaginations? I have lived in a world where man has walked on the moon, but no one has been there in my lifetime. It almost seems like a Hollywood fable now. A fairy tale. I have seen man walk on the moon just as I have seen men Journey to the Bottom of the Sea. When are we going back? In Hollywood there is always room for a sequel.
