When I was single, I would look at the moon and wonder if my family was looking at that same moon some 2000+ miles away? What were they doing? Were they even thinking of me? The song, “Somewhere out there” played in my head, it made me sad, it made me long for home, it made me wonder if I was ever going to meet a soulmate.
Was there a soulmate out there? Somewhere out there, beneath this great big sky…. where was he and what was he doing? Eventually I met that soulmate and we married. He was only a mile or two away for the 8 years I was watching the moon at night!
I’m still fascinated by the moon. Now I have a digital camera that can take photos of the moon! Something that I could have never imagined all those years ago.
Many years have passed as well as many of my family members that I loved so dearly. On a still and quiet night, I still longingly look up and have those same feelings …. is my family looking at that moon tonight?
