Rise and shine.


This is what I saw from my window this morning. Within moments the sky turned a mottled red and then the moon dipped behind the West Maui Mountains. I'm happy to report I still have child like wonder with the full moon, somehow it makes an ordinary Sunday, extraordinary.

I'm sure the Maui moon is bigger than the Roundhay moon or maybe it's simply because ours is always covered in haze, particularly tonight as it's Bonfire Night here in England. Believe it or not we English celebrate the fact that Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament by having bonfires and firework displays - only in England! Remember, remember the 5th of November, gunpowder, treason and plot - a rhyme learned by children at kindergarten.

Light up the sky with standard fireworks. Ah the power of marketing!

Nobody else will understand this but do you remember when you shocked Aunty Vera at Christmas with your take on the Timex ad?
I believe you were five at the time.

Oh what a beautiful moon! And to think that this was the same full moon that spread silver light and shadows across my front lawn when we returned home from the symphony several nights ago.

If we were visited by this sight only once in every one hundred years, the whole world would turn out to gaze in amazement.

Indeed-how lucky are we that we get to see it every month. This particular sighting was all the more magical beacuse it was 6:30am!
