Wink at the moon for Neil Armstrong

.
A full moon rises over the Jerusalem Hills

Neil Armstrong will be buried in Cincinnati on Friday, the day of the full moon.
.
The statement Armstrong's family released upon his death requested that the public honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, adding "and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink."

Bergson, I will look again more closely and more attentively and hopefully I, too, will see his footprint!

One of those times you never forget where you were... the Galipeau's couch.

A fabulous photo, Dina. The twinkling yellow lights bring the moon alive. A nod to Mr. Armstrong during a blue moon. Do you use that expression in Hebrew?

Dina said...

Friends, thank you all. I enjoy the idea of our collective wink at the moon.

What a lovely thought. I didn't know about Neil Armstrong's family's wish. I love the idea of giving him a wink. Will do next time I see the full moon.
