The Birth on the Eighth Day of the Moon
It's still my favorite story. The sleepy guards of the jail, the sudden, fragrant rain, the lining up of constellations and half moon as the sun has swung completely away, leaving behind the cover of a darkness that's humming with anticipation. And then. . . Happy Sri Krishna Janmashtami everyone!
