Pictures And Other Stuff
I tried to get some pictures last night of that moon. Aren't we lucky to live on a planet with such a pretty moon? Yes. Yes we are. We live in a world of wonders and mysteries and the moon is up there, not caring at all and yet, paying witness to everything.
I read an article in an older New Yorker last night and boy, did it blow my little mind. It was in the December 19 and 26, 2011 issue and it was entitled The Sanctuary and was written by Elif Batuman and honey, if you get a chance, read it. There's a little blurb here.

Plus, a whole bunch of other very, very interesting information and ideas and theories.

Now, speaking of pictures, my son Hank has an excellent site where he posts pictures and captions them and I suggest you go visit. If you aren't already a fan, you will be soon.
Click on the picture to go there.
Much Monday Love...Ms. Moon
