Dream, March 8, 2012
When I look out the window, the moon is so big and so close, it takes my breath away. I see its full roundness, but I can also see the edges that are in shadow. Its features — its hills, its craters, its blueness and its whiteness — are clearly visible.
My fellow space traveler calls me to the windows on the other side of the spaceship. “Look! Look at the sun!” It is huge in the window. Awe inspiring.
Beyond the moon and sun — both so close I feel I could reach out the window and touch them — I see wisps of clouds across the blackness of space. My heart sings, I can’t believe my good fortune to be on this spaceship. The universe is a beautiful place.
