  • Looking at the moon (again!), I am always inspired by the fact that others in far away places are looking at the same moon. You don't find that amazing? When I look up at the night sky, I imagine I am a shepherd in Bethlehem, a young boy in Rwanda, a businesswoman in NYC, a gaucho riding his caballo over the pampas, a sailor sailing the Caribbean, or a Cowbird writer and photographer from South Africa. I love the feeling that we are all connected.

    Tonight, the moon sits on its crown amidst the noise of the city. Looking at the photo more closely, I see she is not alone!

    Optical illusion? Non-flying UFO? A trick of my old and tired eyes? A gift from the universe? Do you see it too?

    De nuevo me encontre observando la luna, siempre inspirada porque otros en lugares muy alejados, estan mirando a la misma luna. No te parece increible? Cuando miro al cielo de la noche, me imagino que soy un pastor en Belen, un ninio en Rwanda, una mujer de negocios en NYC, un gaucho montando su caballo por las pampas, un marinero en el Mar Caribe, o un escritor de Cowbird. Me encanta que todos estemos conectados asi!

    Esta noche, miro a la luna, sentada sobre su corona entre los ruidos portenios. La miro mas de cerca, y veo que no esta sola!

    Ilusion optica? OVNI que no vuela? Un truco de mis viejos ojos? Un regalo del universo? Vos tambien, lo ves?
