// the distance of the moon //

'there were nights when the Moon was full and very, very low, and the tide was so high that the Moon missed a dunking in the sea by a hair's-breath … Climb up on the Moon?? Of course we did. All you had to do was row out to it in a boat and, when you were underneath, prop a ladder against her and scramble up.'
