Square One Notes

The Same Moon

I never really thought about how when I look at the moon, it’s the same moon as Shakespeare and Marie Antoinette and George Washington and Cleopatra looked at.

    1. I wish I could take credit for this idea! This is a quote from that book I read recently that I was telling you about. It’s a survival story set in a fictional time when the moon collides into the earth and what happens next is fascinating! I loved this story. I hope you’re doing well!

      1. The moon colliding with the earth sounds worse than COVID. Speaking of survival stories, I heard a reference today to the book/movie The Martian. Have you seen or read that. It’s also a great survival story.
        Things are well on this end. I hope it’s the same there.

  1. The shot I made of the moon I put into the ‘worst’ picture category on my Flickr account! Yours would be in the ‘best’ category! And, yes, I agree with your thoughts on seeing the moon throughout Earth’s history. Not just the moon but the whole starry sky! As Jason commented, I tend to think of those generations who didn’t have writing, what did they think and do when they saw the moon and stars? Great post! It has us all thinking! 🤔😘

    1. I wish I could take credit for this thought, Mark. It’s a line from a great story I finished not too long ago. Speaking of good reads, I found a title by an author you recommended and really enjoyed it! Olive, Again by Elizabeth Strout. Awesome storytelling. Thank you so much for the recommendation!

      1. I have now finished the Elizabeth Strout catalog going backward from Olive Again, Sandra. Every novel pulled me right in. Some repeat the same characters, but some introduce whole new casts. I’m glad you agreed with me about her storytelling for some mind-getaway.
