Moon Thoughts

(Toledo, OH) On a chilly October evening last week I spent a few minutes staring at the full moon, my arms wrapped around my sides to conserve warmth. Like billions of people before me - and probably like a few million at the same moment - I observed the brilliant white orb that lights the night sky, and its mesmerizing luminescence did not fail to hold my gaze.

Even the ticking of my Patek Philippe did not cause me to break my reverie, and for a few moments I achieved a state of non-conscious being: just me, the moon, and the wind.

Then my barking dogs reminded me of my obligations, and I returned inside, cold but peaceful.
