Filling the Well: Anton Chekhov and Cat Stevens

Don't tell me the moon is shining; 
show me the glint of light on broken glass.
– Anton Chekhov

"Moonshadow" by Cat Stevens
(1977 Animation Festival Short)

April 1: John Muir
April 4: Cesare Pavese 
April 5: Anton Chekhov and Cat Stevens


  1. An unexpected but very nice pairing!

  2. What a delightful little video. 1977 was a good year.

  3. I love Cat Stevens & know this song, but have never seen the animation! It's so sweet! Thanks, Michelle!

  4. Haven't heard this song in ages, thanks for the reminder video, Michelle. Lunar leanings in the air as I wrote a moon poem, too! :)

  5. Ah, that is a great song. Thanks for that. I do love that quote from Chekhov. Thanks for another great post.
