“There is a star in the sky / Guiding my way with its light / And in the glow of the moon / Know my deliverance will come soon / I’m waiting for the night to fall”
Waiting for the Night, Depeche Mode
Moonbeam Anthems - for those of you who feel energized and grounded during the night hours, when catching glimpse of a glowing full moon and starry sky stops you in your tracks and puts life in perspective. Take a deep breath, then sigh as you hear That Song – you know, the one you’d listen to over and over on your headphones when you were a young adult, wistful and melancholy in the tranquility of a balmy summer’s eve.
How deeply the songs of our younger selves have embedded themselves into our DNA, under our skin, able to transport us back in time to a specific place, memory, sensation, feeling. What a magical combination, the infinite night sky and the anthems of our youth, especially as we live in a world filled with dark stars, now more than ever reminding us to that our young invincible dreamer is at the ready, waiting just beneath the surface.
