The same moon shines down on all of us.
It definitely did not look like an unhappy face to me. I'm talking about a magnificent configuration of Jupiter and Venus along with the crescent moon that adorned the early evening sky last night. The three lights formed a lovely triangle above Washington DC. Did you see it?
The shape created by the three lights was slightly different in Tanzania, proof that the southeastern sector of Africa is really far away from here!
Far away and yet so close because even in Tanzania, I have blogfellows - well - one blogfellow. Because she blogs, I am invited to have a look at the world through her eyes every time she posts. So in a way I feel like I'm sitting at her kitchen table, next to the blackboard, conversing as if we lived next door to each other. I rub shoulders with people in Botswana, S. Africa, Germany, Australia, the U.K., Canada and all over the U.S. every day.
In ways I would never have imagined just a few years ago, I have more in common with my neighbors all over the world than I thought I did. I love that!
