Before the mast

It’s usually the sun that gives you hope and light and all that stuff you read in a Hallmark card. The moon usually isn’t directly out the window of my balcony. I happen to lay down to watch a movie and I look up and the moon, in all its dark beauty shining through my door. It was so bright and vibrant that the sunrise can wait another 6 hours. You truly never know where you can pull hope from. The light of the moon can guide you just as much as the light from the sun…it’s all about perspective. 

I did not wish to take a cabin passage, but rather to go before the mast and on the deck of the world, for there I could best see the moonlight amid the mountains. I do not wish to go below now. Henry David Thoreau
