Dark Side of the Moon

In the beginning, there was just tohu wa’bohu –  “In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth (lit. skies and the land) and the earth was without form or shape ( tohu wa’bohu; wilderness and wasteland | nothingness, no purpose or order) with darkness over the abyss (deep, symbolic for chaos) and a mighty wind (ruah, wind, Spirit, breath, presence) sweeping over the waters.” A lot going on there.  But “Then God said: Let there be light, and there was light.”  Simple, clean.That all came to mind today while reading that the studio-album “Dark Side of the Moon” by Pink Floyd turned 50 years old this year. The iconic album cover (seen here; it is copyrighted and hence I cannot show it in this post) makes me think of that moment in creation. …. and slip into momentary denial: “It can’t be that old. I am not that old.”  Like the flowing waters of the Nile River, denial passed on its own good way.
