Thought for the Night: Moon Cycles

There is a new moon tonight. So strange to refer to it that way. It’s always the same moon that reappears, the same object floating in space.

That is, it is the same physical object.

Perhaps the moon’s essence is reborn every time it disappears behind the night sky, making it new in a different way. Perhaps, like us, it has experiences that make it change, although it remains the same recognizable form – like me, the same body, the same spirit, but altered irretrievably with certain moments in life.

Or it’s just the same moon every time, constant, if inconstant in sight, steadfast, holding her ground.
