I noticed the Moon when I was closing the spare room window earlier this evening and took this pic from the back yard standing on a patio chair odoman! Fluffy, see-thru clouds have been rolling off & on since yesterday ahead of another "rain maker" and I just thought the affect with the Moon was beautiful though I doubt my pic here captured any of that!

I have a deep affection for our Moon that's years old by now. I love it for its' beauty, its' comforting & reassuring glow, its' magic. Basking in her rays is a very spiritual experience for me. Our Moon has a presence, a protective guardian who sends love and strength when needed.

I don't remember exactly how or when my affection for our Moon started but I suspect it was back when I worked "shift work" as closing book keeper for a foodstore and went in at 3p, 4p or 5p and worked until 11p, 12a or 1am. When I got home, I did what people normally do when they get home in the early evening - eat, do a little gardening, straiten up or do dishes, etc.. When I gardened, I was outside, in the dark, many times by myself with our Moon to keep me company. Like I said, I suspect that's when it began but I'm not sure. I think I've always been fascinted with our Moon regardless.
