I have always appreciated the moon. In the dark of the night it brightens enough to show you what's out there. When full and in view it's magnificent sight soothes me. On a long journey home it give me hope. That frenemy hope.
You have to wait several weeks before each full moon, yet once that times passes it is there. You get a treat once a year with a blue moon, when you see a full moon twice in a month.
In the darkest hour of your mind and heart...in the way of hope it gives you a soothing peace.
I would even say that the Moon inspires me. Many times over.
It reminds me that even when hope betrays hope also provides, it all depends on how you look at it.
Go ahead, peek outside, look up at the lively moon tonight.
I love October, not just because it is my birthday month but because the air changes, the season changes, the time changes.
It is when we must embrace the fact that the time change will have us seeing the dark sooner. A time when the trees begin to let loose the leaves, orange, brown and yellow leaves flying about.
It is the time when the ghouls and horrors are seen in decorations, shows, movies and parties.
It is the time when we say farewell to the summer heat, smile toward the cooler weather and wonder of the winter to come.
Happy October! May there be light within you to shine upon the earlier darker hours. May the ghouls and gremlins that ring the door bell make you smile and partake in trick or treat.
May you embrace the change in season knowing... it will bring us back to Spring soon enough.
