Donut in the Moon










Here's a story from today.
Maybe a better title could be "Moon in the Donut". I think you will like it:))

After Y and I enjoyed our donuts in the shop which makes natural doughnuts,
we got one to go for the moon.
One for the road.
I liked the sound of "one for the moon".
We choose the "nature" flavor for him and once outside in the parking lot I held it up for him to take in. He's eating it, he's eating it, the moon's eating the doughnut, I screamed to Y and asked her to take the picture, if she could get it with the moon right in the middle of the donut.
I was getting very excited as the sunlight and the early afternoon moon mixed together and shone through the middle of the donut. Y was a great assistant as she asked me to move my hand higher and higher so she could catch the moon right in the middle.

I looked at the photo she took, she did a good job with the placement, but the moon looked so small. When I was experiencing it the moon looked so big, or at least as big as the actual life size size of the donut hole, if you can imagine this.

"It's so small", I said to Y.
"I can't make the moon bigger", she said.
Oh, but you are such a good photographer, I said, really believing she can do anything.

Soon after as we were on our way to the train to go home, we saw a 1 yen coin lying on the ground. Y said it's lucky, let's pick it up.

"I can make 1 yen bigger if I take a photo" she said confidently.

"What? You can make 1 yen bigger but not the moon...how can that be..." I challenged her.

"You can't move the moon", she said.

We got on the train and laughed all the way home about this and some of the other funny things that happened today. And don't forget, if you are going to offer food to the moon do it soon as in a few days he will be full. (ha ha ha)

Hi Otli,
YOu know what's funny?!
Now after this day of the moon in donuts, I see your little graphic of the calligraphy with the dots, in a new light,
it's looking like the little moon in the donut!! Just there is one extra dot, maybe that is another moon who got away:))

Have a great night!
And PS on my sister Tzivia's blog there's a French movie in the comments section! I wonder if you know it?!

The best part is that Y has a mom who believes she can do anything! Lucky girl, that Y. Lucky mom, you :)
But please tell her that her feminist Aunt Tzivi says that the moon is female (just ask Marge Piercy!)http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~richie/poetry/html/poem110.html
