MOON REPAIR SO ALL CAN USE

The moon belongs to you. Each day she climbed the ladder to the moon, dutifully, and without instruction. Her going there was an act of kindness, a gesture of goodwill toward humanity- for however hard and impossible life can seem at times, the moon connects us on a higher level. It can bridge distance between two yearning hearts, it can make you feel small but less alone, it can bring wonderment to bleak days. So up she went and she polished the moon until it shone its very brightest, so that it’s glow would warm those who needed it- even on the coldest, darkest nights.
WE ARE ALL EQUALS. THE ONLY THING THAT WEDGES IN BETWEEN US ARE OUR FEARS AND OUR STARVATION.

We cannot achieve peace of the past or hope for the future by standing on the backs of slaves, pretending they are stools
Who knew that a MOON TREATY exists?
It's such an impressive trophy of peace. But just like a trophy it has
little meaning. Not many countries have signed it.
Would you like to know more about future moon plans? Urine Luck!
THE RARITY OF WISHING UPON A SHOOTING STAR
Collage on Art Paper
Simon and Ben would always sneak out of their room in the middle of the night to go study the heavens. Simon, being the older brother, would teach Ben how to spot constellations , and would listen to the radio to find out when the next meteor shower would be, so they could witness the sprinting lights. Ben, often exhausted while star gazing, had yet to catch a glimpse of a single shooting star, though he would just act like he had every time Simon said he saw one. Ben pondered how he was ever supposed to wish upon a shooting star, if he could never find one to begin with.
WELL WISHES - EVEN UPON A STAR THAT CANNOT BE FOUND
In some way the moon equalizes us. We all have the same view, and a similar amount of time with the moon. We can choose to appreciate it, or choose to ignore it, but it is always around us.
place pun here:
The suit was fashioned to show wealth. The high heels were fashioned to keep men and women literally off of the streets, it was a sign of class to keep your britches clean. Evening dresses? A sign of class. The handbag? A sign of class.
But sneakers... they hold a sense of equality. Although it is one of the highest grossing fashion products and gaining in popularity and price, they are still all something we own. We can choose to ignore them, or we can choose to appreciate them- just as we do the moon.
We have sneakers like these Nike Waffle Racing Flat Moon Shoes that are worth more than my life, and then we have sneakers like these that cost the same as a Toronto brunch. There is definitely a class structure that has developed in the sneaker world, but they are still accessible to everyone.
