The moon looks so beautiful tonight; the perfect sliver of silver looks so shocking against its concrete backdrop, so confident, so imposing.
I love our moon far more than the sun for its ability to stir up thoughts and feelings that would otherwise lay dormant. I’ve also always been fascinated by the connection between the moon and moods.
I feel like I’ve written a fair bit about the moon and have been listening to Bowie’s space songs this week so thought I’d do a roundup post, a selection of my favourite musings inspired by the goddess in the night sky.
