Serenity is a Full Moon

Serenity is a Full Moon

Like all of you, I’ve been a bit stressed in the last month or so. And I was really looking for something that would help me banish the stress-monster for a moment or two.

About 30 minutes ago, I noticed that a beautiful full moon had just popped over the neighbor’s house. So I grabbed my trusty Canon and took the pic that’s now living at the top of this post.

I hope you’re feeling alright on this lovely night. I’m not exactly a paragon of serenity, but I’m feeling better than I was a little while ago.

And there’s nothing wrong with that!

Full Moon over Tosohatchee WMA

Full Moon over Tosohatchee WMA

Last night there was a lovely full moon illuminating my camp site.

I don’t think I can truly describe what it was like. The magnificent moon shadows took my breath away; I was spellbound.

Last night was extraordinary for another reason. My youngest turned 31. Happy birthday, Ben! Good thoughts of you on a peaceful night. What a blessing.

One can never have enough nights like that. A complete feeling of contentment. A feeling that–at that moment–all is right with the world.

And as a look at the two piles of laundry demanding my attention at this moment, I’m still wearing a smile a got from staring at Luna for an hour or two last night. Sigh…
