I was driven from Birmingham to London after a wonderful dinner with even more wonderful friends. Came back to the hotel room and slept happy and content. Next morning BBC was reporting – of all the things – about the Moon. BBC NEWS Science/Nature June Moon Dazzles Skywatchers
My friend and I did notice the odd shape of the moon – though we did not see it in the colors that the article has. I remembered the evening. It was a unique evening for me. I know now, why. It was a day of a phenomenon.
What I could never imagine to articulate about my thoughts yesterday night, Paul Simon wrote about it years ago.
If you want to write a song about the heart
Think about the moon before you start
Because the heart will howl
Like a dog in the moonlight
And the heart can explode
Like a pistol on a June night
So if you want to write a song about the heart
And it’s ever-longing for a counterpart
Write a song about the moon
It was a wonderful day. And thank you God, it was an even more wonderful night.
