Shine on summer moon

Tonight, someone on social media whispered it was beautiful outside. Another said gorgeous.  So, I turned away from my computer. I opened the door and stepped into the yard and walked up the street. And they were right.  The moon is a full beauty. You can clearly see the Big Dipper and other stars that are settled into the vault of the sky.  The scent of lindens blooming is heavy in the still air.

The magical thing about our Northern country at this time of year is you can simply walk out into the world and enjoy it. You don’t need to spend 15 minutes putting on a coat, pulling on boots and finding mittens, scarf and hat before leaving.

Take this moment – don’t wait.  Don’t read another word, watch another minute of TV or check your phone.  Head on out there and have a look that is the wonder of the universe around you.  You won’t regret it. The moon won’t last forever and neither will the summer.  Take the time before it is gone.
