The crescent moon chases Venus, Saturn, Mars

I left early under the Milky Way on my second day across The Paramo.

For an hour, looking back behind me to the eastern sky from time to time, I watched the play of the surprisingly bright crescent moon (who had lit the fullness of the rest of herself almost like she were full) chase three planets–Venus, Saturn, Mars–to eat them up, occluded behind her. An experience those last 15 years of city dwelling would not have afforded me.

Can’t quite get it on camera, but I really wanted you to be with me for this… so I did my best.

So onward towards the hills


And across a long Roman bridge to…
