    The new moon is such a lovely sight…my mother used to look straight into our eyes to wish us good health and luck. Is that an Eastern European tradition, I wonder?
    But the dark side of the moon hides from all of us, never to be gazed upon unless one happens to be circumnavigating it in outer space.
