The Moon Moves Us
The moon moves the tides and tugs on the earth. Earth and Moon have an arm's length relationship. They love and need each other, but sustain a powerful tension. Lovers cannot get enough of gazing into her face. Our animal brethren and bug cousins behold with wonder the lunar waxing and waning. Moon calls our dreams out to dance with jumping and stomping, twirling slowly, then gradually faster and faster. So fast. Is that green glitter or star laughter in the deep night's cavort?
Some friends commissioned me to paint this for their anniversary. They are rabbit people. And moon people. When was the last time you held the moon in your gaze, and let the moon hold you in her's?
