I like the idea of a pregnant moon

July 25, 2002

lisa and i walked down the street, drunk on guitar riffs and possibility. we were smiling, because it had been a good night — and it wasn’t over, yet.

two guys followed closely behind us. “is it a full moon tonight?” one asked.

i looked up at the moon, hanging low in the dark sky, and said, “no. i think it’s the moon that makes you think to yourself oh it’s a full moon until the next night when the real full moon comes out and you realize you were completely wrong.”

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.
