Where two are together there is symmetry. Parallelism. Beauty. But without the rest of the picture, two are nothing to look at.
God is the rest of the picture.
“Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor.” Ecclesiastes 4:9

“Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate
And though I oft have passed them by
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.”

Last week. The moon came closer to the world than it has since 1992 (or 1993 according to one reference). It was big. It was 8% closer (or 14% according to another reference). It was also brighter. It was 30% brighter according one reference (it was noticeably brighter according to another reference).
So I went camping on the hill above Santa Rosita and took a picture. Not a perfect picture. But my setup consisted of holding a binoculars in front of my lens, so it was all very intense.
I love the night sky.

If you play with fire long enough, you just might get burned
Straight.Narrow. Solid. Right on track.
Placid, pale moonlight on the cool concrete wall of a house filled with cheer. Shadows from the dark things outside flee from the light within. All is peaceful.
