Moon | East Wenatchee, WA | April 2020

An astral orb delivers first-rate distancing. From afar it brightens the dark, illuminating a grander, greater reality. Its billion-year existence offers security amid uncertainty. Its path stays true, an unwavering arc across the spectacular night sky. It’s a fine stay-at-home reminder — elusive yet eloquent — of our place in the larger universe. Hand-washing optional.
