MOON GIVE ME BREAD

I wanna share this story from "Our Daily Bread". It's originally shared by Cindy Hess Kasper.

On the way home from a family camping trip, 6-year-old Tanya and her dad were the only ones still awake in the car. As Tanya looked at the full moon through the car window, she asked, "Daddy, do you think I can touch the moon if i stand on my tiptoes?"

"No, I don't think so," he smiled
"Can you reach it?"
"No, I don't think I can either."

She was quiet for a moment, then she said confidently, "Daddy, maybe if you hold me up on your shoulders?"

On July 20, 1969, the United State's Apollo 11 was the first manned mission to land on the Moon with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. The former being the first to step foot on the surface. Since then, going to the Moon had been a dream of many people. I remembered when I was a kid, my mother used to tease me with the line, "Moon give me bread, eat it, eat it!"

The first photo was taken in the Fort San Pedro, Iloilo. I was watching the sunset with a friend. We had a great conversation until moonrise.

The second photo was taken in the province when I wake up early in the morning to catch the sunrise. Luckily, I was able to catch the moonset first.

I inspired by the first and the second photos and came up to create a moon art (the third photo). It is still made of white sand from Tatlong Pulo.


Do you also have a story about the moon?

I have to many stories to tell about the moon (including Twilight series, hahaha!). Seriously, I also like taking photos of the moon in its different forms.
