“And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies.”
I remember learning it in 4th grade and it seriously always stuck with me. It was a ‘holy shit, dude’ moment back then, and it remained so for many years. Until one day, walking somewhere in Israel, I noticed something in the sky.
It was late afternoon and the moon was out. And the sun was chillin just across the way.
Honest to universe, the first thing I thought of was good ole Yehoshua. And ever since then, every time I see it – and I see it often – I consider that it just makes sense now.
Last Friday, I saw my lil friend, daytime Moon, at 8:18am. Now, come on – לא להגזים – that’s just too much. Either get a room, you two, or go back to where you belong.
