Looking up, I also flashed back to one of my son’s favorite books, Papa Please Get the Moon for Me. I had every Eric Carle book for my son but there was something about this one that we enjoyed reading over and over again. Maybe it was how the father brought joy to his daughter by retrieving the moon but first he had to wait until the full moon got smaller to fetch it ,only to have it disappear. Then it slowly came back. Just like when our children leave but sometimes come back and settle in their home town.
Hope you get the chance enjoy the next Supermoon which is on September 9, 2014 and /or remember to take some time to stargaze.
