For as long as he could remember, Anastase had been a juggler. Juggling balls, indian clubs, batons, heavy balls or feathers.
His most secret dream was to juggle with moons, suns, trees and birds. He had come to understand, in the course of things, that neither the number nor the nature of the objects was important.
The only thing that counted was joy.
However, that night something seemed to be bothering him.
So he told this story, for himself, for the moon, and for you too.
