We all look at the same moon

So I just read my friend Laurie's post (http://howeburn.blogspot.com/2007/09/welcome-autumn.html) about the moon in Scotland, which brought to mind a conversation I had with my mom on the way home from choir rehearsal last night. When I walked out of the church I was met by a beautiful full moon with a golden glow around it and small clouds in front of it. It really looked like fall. So as I'm driving home, enjoying the view of the moon, and talking to mom, I said "We have the prettiest full moon tonight", to which she replies "we have that same moon!" No, I am not making fun of my mom - it was actually more the opposite, her saying yes, we can see that same moon here in Georgia. We had a good laugh over it. But it does kind of make the world seem smaller when we can all see the same sights in the heavens, no matter where on earth we are. Makes me think of the song "Somewhere Out There" (from An American Tale) -

Somewhere out there beneath the pale moonlight,
Someone's thinking of me and loving me tonight
Somewhere out there someone's saying a prayer
That we'll find one another in that big somewhere out there
And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star
And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

It does put a different prospective to our place in the whole scheme of things. Although it is comforting to know we are closer to each other than we realize also. I do love the song! Love you bunches,
