lots of thoughts in my head about mama moss this weekend. she's fading fast. i'll be heading out to see her next weekend. i don't believe in an afterlife, but i do believe in the power of the imagination to light the way in dark times. you better believe i am using it right now! i also go outside before bed and notice the stars & moon. i throw my head back and scan the sky. lately it is clear and up here in northeast los angeles the light pollution isn't too bad. there's a vast cushion of velvety blackness out there that feels like a lullaby. afterwards i climb into bed and leave my curtain open. i like the silver spotlight the moon makes on my bed as it arcs through the sky. even if i don't wake up to see it, i know it's there.
