As I was headed to the movies tonight (saw "Jumper"--it was good!), the moon was rising, and looked large and luminous. I had to stop at the end of my street and take a picture. THEN, as I was driving home, the eclipse was taking place, so I pulled over and shut off my lights. It was beautiful. Out of the 20 or so pictures I took, the one below is the best I got. I was wishing I had my tripod with me. This one was taken with the camera propped on the top of my car.
Seeing the moon like this reminds me of summers as a teen, when I'd lay out in the grass with my boyfriend, and we'd just stare up at the moon and talk for hours. He knew a lot more about the constellations than I did, too. When I think about it too hard, it makes me realize how small we all are. If I can make an imprint on one person's life, just half the size of the moon's imprint on me, I'll call it good.
Good night, Moon.
