Edible Moon

Wednesday, October 5th 2016



At the end of a lovely walk home together from Taekwondo tonight, 8 y/o boy looks up at the sky and says, “Wow the moon is bright tonight.  It’s a croissant.”

Then he catches himself, “I said ‘croissant,’ ha ha ha!”

I say that’s just french for crescent.  And that with his blessing I shall evermore like to call it a “Croissant Moon.”

I also retell these two stories;


Gavin is a baby visiting Minneapolis, pointing at the sky.


Me: Yes that’s the moon honey.  Isn’t it pretty?

Him:  BITE!?!


And 2)                                                                                                     

Gavin is 3 years old moon gazing by the grill moon with family.

Me:  And it’s so full tonight!

Him:  [pause.]  What did it eat?




Boy says yes I may call it that.

    I saw it last night. So clear and perfect. A croissant moon.

    Soon to be the full Hunter’s Moon. Biggest and brightest of the year. So bright the Algonquins could hunt deer in the nighttime.
