Between The Sun And The Moon

On the way back from Melaka on Sunday, somewhere on the highway south, a particularly fine, very full moon, became visible low on the horizon ahead of us. The light was just beginning to go, but it was still afternoon, not the time of day you'd normally expect to be contemplating our neighbouring satellite. Just as Noi and I were voicing our appreciation of the sight, glancing into the side mirror I realised that at our rear the orange-red sun was doing an excellent job of smearing itself above the horizon.

Caught between the two, I had the oddest feeling that things were falling into place, and it was a very fine place to be.
