Be like the moon

In part:

The moon will never lie to anyone. Be like the moon. No one hates the moon or wants to kill it. The moon doesn’t take anti-depresants and never gets sent to prison. The moon never shot a guy in the face and ran away.
The moon’s been around a long time, and has never tried to rip anyone off.
The moon does not care who you are or who you wanna touch or what color you are. The moon treats everyone the same.
The moon never tries to get in on the guest list, or use your name to impress others. Be like the moon.
When others insult and belittle in an attempt to elevate themselves, the moon sits passively and watches, never lowering itself to anything that weak.
The moon is beautiful and reflects the sun’s light brilliantly. It needs no make-up. The moon never shoves clouds out of its way so it can be seen. The moon needs not fame or money to be powerful. The moon never asks you to go to war to defend it.
Be like the moon.
-- Henry Rollins

Truth and beauty.

It's a stalker. Sometimes I notice it following me when I'm walking or driving.

I'll notice it peering down through the blinds, or peeking through the edges of the curtains.

I don't know if other people have had similar experiences with the Moon, it's just that sometimes it scares me.
