Reflecting light and shadows
In literature the moon is often described as a companion, either directly or metaphorically. The moon reflects the light of the sun, but it also reflects the Earth’s shadow.
And I believe a good companion, a true friend, also reflects our light and our shadows, the times we act in love and the times when we miss what we could do. Still, like the moon, a real companion says little, but is there with us in good times and sad times, sharing our joy, and comforting us in pain.
