Right now I am looking out the window. There is a perfectly full round yellow moon hanging in the sky. The clouds have given way to her and, apart from a few stubborn ones that are clinging to the mountains, the sky is clear. I can see what appears to be a very bright star just above the moon, but it is actually Jupiter, which is visible for tonight only.

The moon fascinates me. Most of the time I take it for granted - in Ireland it is mostly covered by clouds and it is easy to forget what a thing of beauty a full moon really is. But she's out tonight and still has that way of making me feel very very small indeed. ;)

Thats sounded really pretty Eve...thanks for sharing! You just made me appreciate the moon that much more...I also take it for granted most of the time

Yet we were wrong, terribly wrong. We owe it to future generations to explain why.

Cross-referencing is all part of developing relationships between people

The problem with some of these threads is that there is too much cross-referencing with other threads. This creates confusion to anyone reading one particular thing in isolation.
