When I was a child, we had a ritual with my mom. Every time we saw a crescent moon in the sky, we looked at each other and made a wish! I now do this with my daughter. In Lunatic 2, I tried to convey this feeling. The many moons represent passing of time, and together create a powerful image. Our connection to our roots, memories and the nature is our true power.
