I love the moon in the way that most people love the sun. Maybe I was Dracula in a former life. Tonight, the full moon will coincide with Friday the 13th. How cool eh? It won’t happen again until the year 2049! I can’t wait to see it.
It was extraordinarily bright last night. I had to go outside for a while and enjoy it. While appreciating the moon’s beauty last night, I caught myself wondering, as I have before, about how many people in the world were looking at the moon at that very second. Of course I’ll never know the answer to that question. But I always wonder.
Do you ever wonder about that?
When I watch the moon, I just sit there in wonderment and awe. Here is this glowing white sphere in the sky, bringing magic to the darkness. Ribbons of moonlight stretching across the sky, reflecting off of ocean’s surfaces, and percolating through tree tops to the ground below.
It is beauty on the grandest of scales.
Do you take time to appreciate the beauty of the moon?
