Last week’s full moon reminded me of this song from Pearl Jam, and the line, “I wish I was the full moon shining off a Camaro’s hood.”
I caught a glimpse of the moon at about 4am, as I was battling a night of interrupted sleep. I looked out in the backyard and saw the glow of the moon, and immediately wondered if Eddie Vedder would consider rewriting the lyrics to, “I wish I was the full moon shining off my backyard patio table’s glass table top.”
Yeah, maybe not. Camaros are way more poetic. You'll hear for yourself when you listen to the song…doesn't have the same flow.
Whether or not it becomes a song lyric, that stream of light painted on the table, and the moon beginning its descent into the early morning sky, made it worth being awake at such a ridiculous hour.
While we were not in the path to view the lunar eclipse in North America, I read on several sites that this eclipse was a sign of rebirth, a completely new life…and those who were feeling detached from their current reality could expect great change. Because of the eclipse. And that the past few weeks of disconnect have been the birthing pains.
Interpret that however you will, or dismiss it as a load of hooey, but can I ask…how long has it been since I’ve posted a Music Monday here? Or even a word, syllable or letter of any kind, for that matter?
Hmm…I may be even more convinced in the power of the moon if I revisit this space two or three times in the next month.
