On Lunar New Year, the moon is always invisible.  That’s what a new moon is.  Impossible not to read meaning into that, so I do.  And that’s how I know that whatever is invisible is merely hidden;  that light will always rise.  We just have to wait.  Think about all the times, alone at night, you’ve looked out a window to find the moon.  We count the days, watching that light get bigger.  We hope for a better year for everyone.
