If You Could See the Moon Right Now

I can't. Nobody in Provo can. But if you look up, you'll know where it
is. The light it casts over the East mountain tops is so bright with a
cloudless sky. If you woke from a daze to see this, you might think it
was some strange secluded sunrise, only illuminating a single peak. It
must be a full moon, or close to it. I don't know. Maybe I'm glad I
can't really see it.

But there it is. Lifting now, just barely visible. I paused and watched
long enough, I suppose. It's not often one sees the heaven's literally
move. Not often I stop to watch when it does.

It's a full moon. My wife and I totally saw it on our walk back from the library.

A couple of time over the last week, when I was awake at between 2and 4 in the am. the full moon cast so much light in our bedroom that I could almost read. Remember, Easter always comes the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring equinox.
