Heavenly High

Summer ends, and Autumn comes, and he who would have it otherwise would have high tide always and a full moon every night. - Hal Borland

Focused with the Focus 2 app There is nothing so wondrous, so heavenly, so impressive as a full moon.  Millions of miles away - ok, it's only 238,900 miles but still... - it is almost incomprehensible how far away and how old it is to believe.  We use the moon in all kinds of expressions - both good and bad to impress upon the strength of our feelings.....

"To the moon, Alice!", Ralph Kramden was fond of telling his poor wife. "I love you right up to the moon - and back.", Little Nutbrown Hare tells Big Nutbrown Hare.  We 'shoot for the moon".  And 'once in a blue moon' things happen to us.

I will always stop and marvel at a full moon.  Not at what it does to our tides or how it stabilizes Earth's rotation - things we don't really think about - but just in the absolute beauty of it.
