Shine…Moon…Shine…

You probably already know…I love the full moon…and…this one…is special…Jane Carroll it is the Harvest Moon…which for me…conjures up memories of my childhood…and…the song…Shine on Harvest Moon

The original song was written over 100 years ago…and has had a few versions…this one from the fifties is the one that I remember the most…so I thought I’d share it with you…

Bertha…is busing singing along and dancing on a moonbeam…no life lessons this morning…

Under the Stars…

I walked outside this morning…as I do many mornings…just to check it out…see what the day is going to feel like…and…it was dark…oh…the sky was crystal clear and filled with stars…but…being just beyond the new moon…there wasn’t the bright illumination that there will be in a couple of weeks when we welcome the full Hunter’s Moon…

I carefully made my way out…placing my feet just so…holding to the porch column…to prevent a fall…as I stepped down to the deck…

And…yet…even without the moon’s light…within seconds…my eyes adjusted to the darkness…and I could see…making out the familiar shapes of my shrubs and plants…my granny’s rocker on the porch…it was all clear…I didn’t need the full moon in order to see it after all…

Bertha…says…it reminds her of my life…

She says…that sometimes…I think I need a big…illumination…when…everything is right in front of me…crystal clear…if I just take a moment…and let my eyes adjust…

Hmmm…I think this deserves some contemplation time…and…a walk under the stars…seems like just the time for it…
