Two ships were moored side by side. As the early moon began to brighten with the fading of the winter sun one ship said to the other "I am the luckiest ship because the moon casts its glow right above my mast." "That might be true. But from where I sit I can see the moon hanging in the distance." The first ship pondered this. "Yes that is true. I do have to tilt my bow to see its entirety. You can stay secured as you gaze at its beauty." The second ship replied "But I cannot see the sun from where I am anchored. It is hidden by the trees." The first ship responded "I see the golden sun setting every evening. But it has faded my canvas." Both ships sat in silence One wondering at the distant bright white full moon The other wondering at the silhouette of the closest star fading behind dancing branches. "I know who is the luckiest," the first ship said. "So do I," said the second. And there was no need to speak. Two ships were moored side by side.
