MORE THAN JUST A PRETTY PHASE

THE INTIMACY BETWEEN THE EARTH AND ITS MOON

 

 

COUNTLESS POETS AND SONGWRITERS HAVE BEEN INSPIRED BY THE SOFT BEAUTY OF OUR NEAREST NEIGHBOUR IN SPACE. COUPLES GET A SENSE OF QUIET INTIMACY UNDER ITS SERENE GAZE. LIKE AN ADORING WIFE IN TIMES PAST, SHE BEAMS SILENTLY IN A CORNER, SUBMISSIVELY FOLLOWING THE EARTH.  THE ANALOGY IS BY NO MEANS FAR-FETCHED.  LIKE A DOTING WIFE, OUR MOON NEVER TURNS HER FACE AWAY FROM THE EARTH, KEEPS IT FROM GOING TOO FAST OR TIPPING OVER, MOVES AND STIRS IT CONSTANTLY, FILLS ITS INHABITANTS WITH A SENSE OF MYSTERY AND WONDER, ALL WITHOUT DRAWING TOO MUCH FANFARE AND ATTENTION. IT IS THE INTENTION OF THIS PROJECT TO HIGHLIGHT THE MOON`S INDESPENSIBLE ROLE IN KEEPING THE EARTH IN PLACE AND CAUSING LIFE AND CULTURE TO THRIVE. THOUGH THE APPROACH WOULD BY NECESSITY BE LARGELY SCIENTIFIC, IT IS THE HOPE OF OUR TEAM THAT WE WILL FILL OUR AUDIENCE WITH A DEEPER APPRECIATION OF JUST HOW MUCH WE RELY ON ITS BENIGN EFFECTS.

 

AS WITH ANY LOVE STORY, THIS ONE BEGINS WITH HOW THE HAPPY COUPLE METů
