Oh, I’m being followed by a moonshadow…leaping and hopping in a moonshadow~ Cat Stevens

Nights in white satin,
Never reaching the end,
Beauty I’d always missed
With these eyes before,
Just what the truth is
I can’t say anymore ~ Moody Blues

Three things cannot be hidden, the sun, the moon and the truth~ Buddha

The sun, the moon, and the stars would have disappeared long ago…if they’d happened to be within the reach of predatory human hands~ Havelock Ellis

The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is undiminished~ Deng Ming-Dao

The moon is battered isn’t she, all those meteor impacts, but still she shines brightly on us, to keep our nights from drowning in the dark.

When my children were young this was their prayer every night:

I see the moon and the moon sees me. God bless the moon and God bless me~ Irish children’s lullaby

May the light of the moon always brighten your darkest nights. It will. If you just look up.

Cheers to you.

  1. I won’t be seeing the moon for a while…our third winter snow storm (in less than 7 days) has just started. But last night I wish I had a telephoto lens… the moon could be seen shining through the cloud patch with a silver then pale pink corona. It was really beautiful.

    Love me a good moon shadow and moon dance! Cheers!

  2. Just lovely! In the city the moon can seem to be hidden, so high above the glow of the buildings and the noise of the streets, but you have reminded me how wonderful it is! I’ll remember what Buddha said and look out for it tonight! 🙂

    • Yes the light pollution from cities ruin star-gazing in general much of the time. But it is always worth it to look at the stars and the moon and this time of year is great for it in this hemisphere. Cheers to you and happy moon gazing!
