Fly Me to the Moon

moonrise over the clouds wp

What could be more romantic than flying above the clouds to the Moon in a vintage plane? I know… some of you would say that it would be a bit cold up there in a vintage plane but… the romance of the moment would warm the atmosphere, wouldn’t it? Of course, the fuel could also be a problem… 🙂 But leaving the fuel and the cold aside… the experience would be a most romantic one!

Love is strongly tied to the Moon. “I love you to the Moon and back” lovers say, “Bring me the Moon” a girl would say to test her partner’s love,  Frank Sinatra’s “Fly Me to the Moon” is such a playful romantic song and what about Mancini’s Moon River? So dreamy and romantic! All the romantic poets and artists talk/write/paint at least one time in their lives the Moon and they associate it with love and romance.  I am fascinated with this romantic heavenly body. And I love stars and clouds and vintage planes and I love Love, therefore this piece just  had to came out somehow, someday. And it seems that someday is today 🙂

James Joyce wrote a wonderful, poetic description of the Moon:

“Her antiquity in preceding and surviving succeeding tellurian generations: her nocturnal predominance: her satellitic dependence: her luminary reflection: her constancy under all her phases, rising and setting by her appointed times, waxing and waning: the forced invariability of her aspect: her indeterminate response to inaffirmative interrogation: her potency over effluent and refluent waters: her power to enamour, to mortify, to invest with beauty, to render insane, to incite to and aid delinquency: the tranquil inscrutability of her visage: the terribility of her isolated dominant resplendent propinquity: her omens of tempest and of calm: the stimulation of her light, her motion and her presence: the admonition of her craters, her arid seas, her silence: her splendour, when visible: her attraction, when invisible”- James Joyce, Ulysses

Enjoy the piece!

Love and Moonlight!
