Distance no longer a factor
April’s full pink super moon occurred on a school night and with the hour distance between me and my granddaughter, we had to compromise for our Walk When the Moon is Full adventure.
Enter FaceTime and a few screenshots.
We spoke about seeing the same moon even though we’re far apart. I walked on our road and she walked around her yard. I showed her the barge on the river and she showed me her tree.
She figured out how to turn the device around to show the moon over her shoulder and I figured out how to take a screen shot without my finger over the lens.
We talked about East and West, why the April moon is called a pink one, and I may have used the words ‘perigee’ and super moon.
I don’t know if any of it sunk in and it’s okay if it didn’t. As long as she felt the connection and the love, that’s all that matters.
