Most of us live quite commonplace lives. Yet if we learn to see the extraordinary in the ordinary, we can find profound synchronicities, affirmation, and joy. It was seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary that inspired Carole Balawender to write down a series of simple, true stories from her own life. Once she began to write, the ease with which the words came made the stories appear to write themselves-an extraordinary event in itself. These stories capture moments in her everyday life-some moments to savor and some to just get through. All of them offer lessons in hope. They will help you rethink the events of your own daily life. They will encourage you to live with wonder and follow your dreams.

Forty years ago, Eddie was an astronaut poised to be one of the blessed few to walk on the Moon, but budget cuts and the shifting whims of politics denied him the only dream to bring meaning to his life. Now, he's an old man, living alone in a house full of space memorabilia, with just his resentments and a huge telescope to keep him company. Every day, gravity pulls him closer to Earth's final embrace, and the Moon seems to laugh at him. When a new mission to the Moon is announced and his application is rejected, it's just about all Eddie and his old, worn-out body can take. Is it a stroke-induced hallucination that suddenly finds Eddie rocketing to become the sole permanent resident of the Moon? Or has his wish finally, inexplicably, been granted? And don't all wishes demand a price be paid? Joshua Viola, multi-award winning author of "The Bane of Yoto" and "Blackstar," presents "Luna One," a science fiction parable in the best spirit of Rod Serling and O. Henry
