I stayed up too late and watched the moon set in my tea cupboard. It was smaller than I imagined it would be when I held it in my hand. Bigger too. When it hangs in the sky I can cover it with my thumb at arm length. In my tea cupboard it is larger than a tea cup and tea cups are larger than my thumb. Would this moon seem large or small to Thumbelina for whom so much is so large? Perhaps not. She could mine an expedition to the moon’s core and make shelves for her own tea sets.
