In the game of hearts, “shoot the moon” means that you win by losing.
In music, it’s a song by Norah Jones.
In books, the moon’s featured in many childhood favorites.
When Norah’s song cycled on this evening, tears welled in my eyes and slid down my cheeks faster than the Jamaican bobsled team on crack.
Lonely for a season. That’s me.
Winning long-term by sacrificing in the short-run is the strategy. I guess if it was easy, everybody would do it.
