Full Moon

The clouds moved out this afternoon and tonight when I went out on the deck to dump scraps in the chicken bucket, the stars looked like glitter on blue velvet. And off the the east, the moon looked like a shiny new nickel in the night sky.
High pressure is building so I'm betting the morning will bring a frosting that will look more like a thin dusting of snow.
The days are short now, but I just realized that in less than two weeks, the trend will shift and we'll start having a few more minutes of daylight to enjoy each day.
It looks like Jilda will have the week after Christmas off so we're trying to think of a get-a-way where we can have a change of scene.
There's nothing like going someplace new. Sometimes a change in geography shifts perspectives, and all of a sudden, you make connections you never knew existed. I'm looking forward to that.
I've run out of steam this evening. Earlier, I interviewed a woman who's youngest son has had cancer four times since he was 2 1/2. He's eleven now.
It's a sad, but inspiring story that I'll share once it's published.
I hope you all have a remarkable weekend.

    your description of the sky is beautiful, very sad about the boy, life is so hard sometimes,

  2. I, too, loved the way you painted the sky. I hope you find somewhere nice to enjoy your getaway. Incredulous to know that little boy has endured so many onslaughts to his young body and how very hard for his Mother to have had to watch him battle from such a young age.

  3. Stick a pin in a map of the USA and go there!!

  4. You make your part of the country sound so beautiful! Go somewhere warm. That's what I would do! But I agree with you - there are wonderful people and adventures to be had no matter where you go.

  5. Awww I think the US is going to be blessed with a full lunar eclipse later? Now that's a sight!

    I hope you and Jilda find a lovely get-away break!!

    Take care

  6. We are looking forward to longer days, too. Moving from one part of the world to another every few weeks makes for some adjusting, but the longer, warmer days are always the best. ;)

  7. I agree. Changing the scenery can be inspiring and energizing. We had a full moon and glittering starts last night too. The sky looked gorgeous.

    To change environment can be very inspiring indeed, as an artist I face that a lot. Sorry to hear about that little boy. Have a lovely weekend!

  9. It can be difficult to write those sad stories, but also awe inspiring. He's still alive, and I hope he stays that way; but let Christ put his suffering at bay.


  10. I love going outside at night when the moon is full just to enjoy the brightness and how it makes the Creepy Woods look. But I hate being on call at the hospital during a full moon...I guess that explains alot about the craziness that's been going on at work!
