THE STORY BEHIND THE MOON AND ME
It’s evening. There’s a man walking through the woods in the moonlight. The woods become sparse and then open up onto a beach. The man walks through the moonlight through sand dunes. He’s fully dressed in a suit, a tie, socks, shoes. There’s a dim light above his head that follows him.

Up ahead, where the beach meets the water you see a bonfire. There are figures standing, moving, around the fire in the distance. The man approaches and you can tell they are his community. His mother. His brother. His friends. His wife. A neighbor and her husband and their child. His father. Beyond the fire is the open sea. It’s a full moon. And the moon is casting a beam out across the water. It’s a calm night.

The man moves among the people around the bonfire. They don’t really see him, but they feel his presence. They’re not sad. He’s not sad. It feels more like the recognition of a passage. They love him and will miss him, but they’re not sad.

The man walks down to the water’s edge. He steps out into the water, fully clothed… to his shins… to his knees… to his waist… to his chest… he’s swimming now… out into the dark sea, under the moonlight. He turns over onto his back, still swimming… back stroking out into the darkness, looking up into the night sky, looking up into the light of the full moon, smiling and stretching his arms up and out.

JOHN COMMON Denver

Confession: I like broken shit. I’m just drawn to it. Always have been. I like it even more if it used to be shiny, beautiful, innocent or full of promise. See, the way down is so interesting to me. The way it actually happens, why it happens, the little details that break off as it’s happening. ... more
