As I was surfing the Internet, which is a thing I do as a normal, early 2000's person in America, I stumbled on this series of definitions of the various full moons we observe during the year. I highly recommend you go there, and read the deeply-moving descriptions of what our forebearers knew and felt--and reckoned--as each moon moved through their lives.
Did they concern themselves with which football team was number one, or which Nascar driver was in the lead? Did they await the arrival of the NYT on their doorstep or the latest stock market report? I think not. They lived lives so much truer to truth than we. Could we ever go there again, as a race, as a culture, as a world?
