Capturing the Moon…Friday Fictioneers.

“Doesn’t everyone want to capture the moon?” She smiled enchanted by some kind of magic. “I wish I could just reach up into the sky with a magic, butterfly net. Bring the moon down to earth and hold it in my hands… a dazzling, golden ball of mystery.

“That’s what I do through the lens,” he replied. “It’s the closest I can get to taking it home.”

Meanwhile, the moon retained it’s secrets… watching, waiting, longing for the humans to return. It was so lonely just hanging up there in the sky.

“All I have left is their footprints”.

    Thank you very much for that. You’re very perceptive. I think there was this idea of how we think we know ourselves but then there’s usually something which we allow to take us way out of our comfort zones without a second thought. My daughter has always been quite shy and is more of an introvert yet she is quite a serious young dancer. Last weekend, she got up on stage and performed her ballet solo for the first time for an audition held at the regional theatre. It was a big deal, but she radiated confidence on stage and was the consummate performer. She is the one who is so scared of heights, she was was afraid on the Ferris wheel. It’s a reminder not to pigeon-hole others or ourselves.
    Best wishes,
