While I was looking at the last full moon, I had a "Fievel" moment. For those of you that don't know what that means, Fievel is a character in the 1986 animated film "An American Tail". It's about a sweet little family of mice that are immigrating from Russia to the US by boat because they lost their home. There was a storm and Fievel got swept away and separated from his family. He made it to the US in a bottle and with some help. set out to look for his family. One night while looking at the moon and stars, he sings the song "Somewhere Out There" while one of his family members was looking at the same moon and stars and singing the same song. That connected them.
While I was looking at the full moon, stars and planets that evening, I felt that same kind of connection. I have a son and daughter-in-law that live in California and thought, "They'll be looking at that same moon and stars in a few hours." I have family that live in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania. I have friends that live all over the world. Even though we'll be looking at the moon and stars at different times, it will still be the SAME moon and stars. My heart just swelled with love at that moment. I felt so connected to all of them AND to all of you that read my blogs. I often talk about how we're all connected and how we're all one...that night I truly felt it.
My hope is that the next time you look at the night sky, you'll remember this blog, feel the connection to all of humanity and know that you're never alone and always loved.
