"Did you ever suffer an attack of a wandering foot caused by the lure of that mystic unknown? There's is no permanent cure, relief only had
while making the wilds your home."
Today my son says goodbye to his 20's and hello to 30! What a wonderful age to be...you're not old and yet you are an adult--IF only I'd known then what I know now comes to mind for that age---when I was a young girl- a preteen- I entertained the idea of being a mounted policewoman---and it was not until I was 46 that I realized I could have made that dream a reality--if only--
...that night back in 1981 when my son came into the world the moon was in its first quarter that cold windy February night...I went into labor on Feb 10th at 11 pm, he wasnt born until Feb 11 at 8:15 pm! I was supposed to bowl that night on my league!
This is not todays moon, but I did notice its a very similar moon to this today...I took this photo a month ago--Today I had some errands to do in "town" and when I got out of my car I saw the moon hanging up in the Southern sky and right in front of the moon was a Bald Eagle soaring...did I have my camera? NOOOOO and If I had Im sure I would have missed the shot, but that image sort of burned itself on my retina--what a sight to see...on this the anniversary of my sons birth! I was trying to figure out how many full moons my son has seen in his short 30 yrs--its such an amazing thing---the people of Egypt as they shouted in exhaustion today for their freedom--it was this SAME moon hanging over them--that just blows my mind sometimes I forget its everyone's moon and not just mine--
...about 2 weeks ago..it was quite early the sun hadnt long been up--I saw that cresent moon and thought it was such a beautiful sight---and then this plane went streaking by--I wondered if the people on board were checking out that moon below that shared the sky with them--my Moon!
