How to Celebrate National Moon Day – July 20, 2017


National Moon Day
July 20, 2017

Contemplate the moon in its various forms: waxing, waning, full, and new. Tonight’s moon will be a waning crescent. Consider things that wane: influence, affection, interest, desire. Consider things that are crescent-shaped: a scimitar, a sickle, a smile. When was the last time you felt truly happy? When was the last time you smiled so much your cheeks ached? Tonight, climb onto your roof and howl at the waning moon. Demand the moon return all that life has taken from you – every missed opportunity, every unrequited affection, every dead beloved dog. Howl until you’re hoarse. The moon will not respond. It will give you nothing. Don’t hate the player, hate the game.
