State Of The Union (Revised)
Bernie and I are out on the patio, the moon low in the sky.
“Did you know the moon stabilizes the earth’s axis?” Bernie says.
I did not. And there are lots of other things about that question I don’t get either; I don’t even know where to start.
“It’s actually possible that without the moon things on earth could have been so chaotic that life wouldn’t have evolved.”
So nice to listen to Bernie at times likes this, the words flowing gently by. He sips his bourbon. I chew on a flip-flop.
“The president says it’s our Sputnik moment. So why aren’t we going to the moon? Or to Mars? Don’t humans need adventure to be their full selves?”
Not sure about humans, but I sure need adventure, and lots. I bark at the moon. When do we start?
Here’s to brighter days for Macy’s Mom.
