last night’s super moon over ann arbor.
“i’ve never seen a moon in the sky that,
if it didn’t take my breath away,
at least misplaced it for a moment.”

”blooming under a cold moon, we are like fireworks…
rising, shining, and finally scattering and fading.
so until that moment comes when we vanish like fireworks…
let us sparkle brightly, always…”
the 1967 outer space treaty forbids any nation from trying to own the moon.
it was the 60’s. the height of the cold war.
they made a treaty not to own the moon.
at the united nations convention of the law of the sea in 1982
it was agreed that the moon, like the high seas,
is considered “res communis” roughly translated to “common to all mankind.”

super moon shining through the trees
“and when the night is cloudy, there is still a light that shines on me.
shine until tomorrow, let it be.’
