thirty | year two

the moon has always been a source of endless fascination for me.

i remember, as a child, looking up at the night sky — filled with its fabric of twinkling stars and its grand lighted orb — and knowing, with certainty, that i was looking at something larger than i would ever understand.  it was my first glimpse of the universe, of infinity, and it was exhilarating.

over the years, my interest in astronomy has waxed and waned, but my love of the full moon has always remained constant.  on those nights, i spend a few silent moments outside, looking up and losing myself in the grandeur of the moonlight.  it’s beautiful beyond words.

tomorrow night, the moon will be full for the second time this month — a blue moon.

on the eve of the new year.

there will be magic in the air.

make it count.

I saw the pale moon light on my backyard increasing last night and thought a full moon must be coming. It’s nice to see another post on the subject.

I always relate to what you have to say about the moon. My children are amazed that it “follows” us if we are traveling and I remember that same feeling of amazement looking out the car window.
