Moon Phases

It's night time here and morning in America.  Sometimes when I look up at the moon I wonder if my friends back home are seeing it in the day light.  Is it possible for the moon to be in two places at once?  I don't think so, but don't really know.  I have a lot of questions for science that I should just google but it's nice not knowing things.

Today is Thanksgiving in America, which make me think about my friends and family.  I miss them but can't go home.  Not can't, won't.  I only have one life and I'm going to do what I want too, which is to travel and learn about the human condition.  The more I learn, the more questions and doubts I have.

When he was six, he believed that the moon overhead followed him
By nine, he deciphered the illusion, trading magic for fact, no trade-backs
So this is what it's like to be an adult?
If he only knew now what he knew then

  2. @the bandit queen Thank you. You're right about how much we don't know about the stars. I was reading an article the other day about the Chauvet Cave paintings (oldest known) and how the drawings of animals had dots that lined up to major star constellations. It's crazy to think that since man began to draw he was drawing the heavens. It really makes me wonder what he thought of them.
