During this morning’s dark, deep-winter dog walk, I looked up and saw the crescent moon accompanied by a bright star, and a smile spread across my face.
Last year — 51 weeks ago to be exact — I saw the same sight and watched the sky shift during the half-hour that Baxter and I walked. It was subtle. Almost imperceptible. A short segment of a gentle arc across the sky. And it grabbed me
I spent the rest of the morning putting together this amateur animation — stretching my skill set into unfamiliar territory — and posted it to Instagram where it was liked by twelve people and viewed 51 times. #internetsensation
To look up and see my animation play out in real life this morning… well, it’s totally understandable if no one else feels the same lift that I felt. Art is richest in the making.
